Hello everyone, I'm in a hunt for a blown na and I found a 92 with a blown head gasket. Here's the good stuff, automatic transmission :stressed:, needs a paint job in the future , has a small hit on the passenger door, car won't start, the top needs to be changed, and..... It has 150k miles. The owner is asking 1100. Is that a fair price ? Should I go for it? By the way I have a 99 nb donor, engine/tranny etc.:D

A non-running car? Lots of people are grateful just to get rid of them. Offer $500 and see if he bites.

I really can't understand the point of buying a miata and getting an AT... especially on forums, if your on here chances are you'll be putting parts in the car.

there is still many parts you need besides the tranny to actually do the swap. You would be better off buying a manual car.

Thanks a lot guys, it is the white one on craigs. I have a complete nb just sitting there so I have everything to do the swap but the owner is asking a bit to much and he wont let it go. I'll wait a week and throw in another offer.

Not running with a bad top and body damage for 1100? HELL NO, that guy is insane.

If you can't, or just don't plain don't want to do the top yourself, thats like $600 alone for a cheap top at a shop. Another motor, again assume you can't do it yourself, that's another $1,000. What on earth makes that guy think anyone would pay $2700 , and do all that work, just to make his car worth purchase?

Try that red one for $1250 in west palm its been for sale for over 6 months just needs paint badly. I was thinking of picking up that white one too but that guy is asking way too much. There is actually a 99 shell on craigslist here it is. Guy is asking way too much, but again its been for sale for a while so I'm sure he'll lower quite a bit and let him keep those ugly wheels.

I checked out the red one yesterday and I would have taken it but it had a lot of rust.... Ithat nb would be perfect but my budget is kind of low right now. I'm going to wait another week and offer the guy with the white na again
