    Default Spec Miata on ebay

    It'll be interesting to see what this goes for:

    The guy says Spec Miatas normally start at $11,999 (why he didn't say $12,000 I don't know) and up. That's BS. Mid Pack SMs can be had all day long for $8,000.

    Are a Bill of Sale ONLY sales very common? I wouldn't buy any car that has a VIN without title being part of the deal.

    If it's cheap and the buyer can buy it in person and drive it around the street at least it might be a good deal.. I wouldn't buy ever buy a car on ebay without looking at it.

    No accidents? What self-respecting SM has not had at least one contact incident on track?

    I really like the part where he commits a fallacy. "This is a great deal for a smart buyer who recognizes what this is!" Implying you are an idiot if you don't think it's a great deal.
    I pull a Richard when shopping. Too many words = something is wrong. If you got something to sell, and if it's something special, you don't have to tell people that it's something special. Give me quantified, verifiable facts, leave your stupid opinion out of it, and for god's sake don't patronize me.

    Ebay just seems to promote the worst in peoples behavior... i dont think id even look into this, if anyones looking for cheap used "modified" miatas, just check a local CA mazda forum MOCC or any other local mazda based forums, theres always some guy getting married or having a baby and this car just doesnt fit into the new lifestyle.. i had a few leads before i grabbed my new RA..

    The (cynical) consensus was correct.

    The high bid was $ 3K. Reserve not met.

    Click original link for bid history.
