This is a rare opportunity.
Automakers don't make a car like this anymore. This car, a 1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata, has only one factory option - air conditioning. The windows are hand cranked. The mirrors are manually adjusted. There are no displays, no touch screens and no navigation systems. You don't miss those options in a real sports car, and certainly not in a car that is almost 20 years old.
By 1997, the original model has been perfected, but the popularity of the Miata meant most left dealerships with silly, heavy options like fake wood trim and power seats. A few of the base Miatas were purchased for life as SCCA racers.
Some have since been ruined by lowered suspensions and gaudy, oversized custom rims, though my sincere hope is that you'll buy another Miata if that is your intent.
A few base Miatas, like this one, were left as simple, easy to maintain, original examples of the last affordable sports car.
Care was taken with this car, and it is only driven a few hundred miles per year. A professional changed a number of critical parts - oil seals, belts, water pump, and the like - a year or so ago. The tires have less than 1000 miles on them.
The only thing you'll find lacking is the windshield motor. The wipers can be used, but work much too slowly for the storms of Florida. There is one parking ding from a stray shopping cart some years ago.
Otherwise, the car is ready to drive.
I've enjoyed this car for 17 years - six as a daily driver after purchase in 1999 (with 9,000 miles on it) and 11 as a weekend beach runabout. Time flies. Now, its your turn.
This Miata is offered for $7,500.
Take good care of this Miata. They don't make a car like this anymore.
