Other Notes: Bought 1990 Miata in FL with new paint and broken crank. Probably weights less than a stock Miata. Use to drive it weekly to the beach, but quit using it when I bought my Porsche. Built in 2011 in about 6 months. Haven't driven it over 60 mph, but if will go much faster, at the sacrifice of distance. Selling for best offer over $5K.
