price check in aisle mx-5

Looks like my buddy may have been right about the car being a decent price.

This Miata just came up for sale in my neck of the woods:

It's the base model (steelies!), has 100k higher kilometers, is cosmetically rough ("could use a paint job") and is also rusting.

Asking price: $2500.
