1999 Mazda Miata 10th Anniversary edition
96k miles
6 speed manual transmission
Torsen limited slip differential
Hard top painted to match

Includes:
One original key and two spares
Factory manual
Original two tone drivers seat, not depicted but in similar condition to the passenger seat

Condition
About what you’d expect for a 20 year old car that has been driven.
Clear coat is in good condition throughout. Bottom front fascia is scraped. Front headlights are a bit cloudy. Driver’s side door has 4” scratch. Original vinyl soft top is worn, with one patched tear behind the driver’s seat and two smaller patches on the top (see photos). Leather steering wheel is worn and blue dye is faded. Center console ash tray is missing. Trunk spare tire cover is damaged and partially missing but mostly gets the job done. Lifelong California car so no rust issues.

Modifications
If you want a Miata that is fun, reliable, and safe for track use but still streetable, this is your turn key solution.

I bought the car in stock condition and modified it for track day (high performance driver education) and auto cross use. Never raced. Older convertibles such as this require extensive modification to be safe on the track, necessitating many of the parts listed below. On the plus side, the seat and harness make track driving much more enjoyable, and I felt safer knowing I had an SCCA approved roll bar on the street.

Performance
I upgraded the suspension to a well respected solution that uses durable Bilstein parts; no need to worry about a costly and inconvenient adjustable coil over suspension rebuild in 20k miles.

The car currently has Hawk HP pads installed, with excellent bite and fade resistance on the track and good drivability on the street.
