Not really a Miata guy yet but have driven them in the past and I bought this 2000 from the former owner who only drove it 1 summer before blowing up the engine. This was from florida and only came up to NY in 2015 ..I saw this sitting for 2 years at the corner service garage before asking the service mgr what was the story with it. He told me it was a women's and he had no idea how to get ahold of her anymore because she moved --- I leave out the details of a internet search of her from " records " found but the glove box had her old insurance card gave me the name and old address.... The internet is a wealth of information..... I got it home and started to research engine pricing and replacements. Found AAA engines on ebay and went off line to order it.. .. so now the wife gets a great birthday gift.
