    You guys are great..your podcast convinced me to purchase a second sports car. A 1994 black on black miata with 60k miles from a 67 year old gentleman for under 3 grand and it's mint. My on suggestion in hindsight is to realize a 21 year old mint condition garaged convertible would be to suggest buying a trombone brush on day one if the car is going to no longer be garaged...rain and clogged drainage pipes make for an unfortunate situation. Let's just say a Torrential rain on a Sunday afternoon gave me a good lession to share.

    Love this car and is so basic it's quite an interesting alternative to my daily driver black c6 z51 m6 440 hp corvette that gets the garage....

    The new ND miata which hardens back to the NA miata had me convinced along with the mint condition of this low mileage low cost 1994 example. Wouldn't have chosen to have two black sports cars if I had my choice the second time around but the car was in such mint condition I couldn't resist the urge.

    Besides I get to do an everyday driver debate of my own every time I drive one of these incredible sports cars. I could have bought new wheels and tires which I didn't need or I could have bought the 1994 miata for shits and giggles...incredible intangible qualities that make driving at legal speeds feel like your piloting a little go cart...

    Looking forward to a grand reveal of the ND and driving up in my 1994 next month with one of the most discussed aspects how among its wonderful qualities really captures or recaptures the driving experience of the original. NA miata....

    Listening to the podcast I own a 2008 cts AWD fe2 304 hp and it is an excellent choice for realitors...the depreciation hit is huge (and I always bought new with the exception of the new to me miata) my suggestion to realitiabilty is definitely the trouble free cts can be stolen. Nice car that says successful but not too extravagant to potiential buyers..

    Spell check is killing me......btw your pricing out west seems to be higher than on the east coast for pre owned cars...

    Head east young man....for your 20 grand wonder. Buy a c6 corvette as there has never been a larger owner group that just takes their sports cars out on sunny Sundays..(I'm not one of them but their are tons of them and they are validated by GM for 300k.....

    Remember negotiate...asking price isn't selling price even on mint Elise's if that's what you want.

    Make an offer..the worst they can say is no and counter...that's the nature of making a deal if the guy wants out...you never know...

    Most sellers post high prices planning on giving some up..

    A lotus seller knows he is not using the car like you would and wants the money...

    Make a lot of offers and who knows...you might live your dream...

    My advice is get a 2006 c6 z51 with the ls2 and four hundred hp...20 grands plenty and if you really want the ls3 with 436 hp.....get the z51 m6 with npp and don't be afraid of the mileage. I bought my c6 new and this thing with 91k miles has been utterly reliable. So good in fact I couldn't justify getting rid of it for the c7...(not enough hp increase on the LT1 I test drove and I did a few interior mods like a dsv steering wheel and a few other leather torch points....the cars a beast and cheap to buy, own, maintain and insure...

    The pool of Sunday garage queens available with the c7 and c7 z06 recent release is huge....and the dealer trade ins are shit...you know that number so just offer a few grand more...

    20 grands easy Pickens for a mid mileage garage queen...of say 8 k miles a year for a 2006 or 2007 ls2 z51...

    Never breaks and if it does need maintance (sp) it's inexpensive....

    Good luck on your Elise hunt....I still say throw out offers and live the dream....

    That's what I do.
