I give up /o/. I've been sharking craigslist everyday for the past couple months trying to get a miata for under 2k that is not "tastefully modded bro" or just wrecked in general. I hear shit all the time on here about how people get good running miatas for a few hundred dollars. How?
Also post any really good car deals you have ever jumped on.
Because you need to get one that is modded, beat to shit or wrecked. Jesus anon you are buying a car for under 2k it is going to be a piece of shit. The reason people buy Miatas for this cheap is because even piece of shit Miatas run.
I sold my '91 Miata for $800 a while ago. It needed a new transmission, the paint was completely fucked, and it didn't have a top.
You have to pay to play, OP.
Got this for $2400 two years ago. 1996, 81K, newer top.

>99% all there and mechanically sound
>just cosmetic thing that need to be restored like paint and some interior pieces.
I did pretty good. I would have had a hard time finding a regular foxbody for this price let alone a Capri with a t-top.
I bought a ranger also with 12k on it a year and a half ago for 3k so that was a pretty good deal as well.
