I love the Fiero's I always wanted one so I could drop a turbo 3800 in the back but I think now if I did that I would go for dropping in a TDI .

It looks nice, not a speck of rust on it! Looks like it sits a little higher than stock.

Got no pictures... gonna call again and bug her. I wanna see if it's worth looking at.

Just to be clear if I do get the Miata I would do a kill switch and Scangauge.

If it's been sitting outside or some other crap I won't even bother going to see it (since the soft top was removed to make way for a hardtop).

If you're going to search cars for me why not use Minneapolis CL?

Because you live there :P (and have already looked). Actually I looking for a car for me, theses are just a by-product. thought it would be better to buy an old car not from the rust belt but further south where there's less salt..,

nice looking car, low miles, matching battery and dash...

Or, you can take the challenge I did: a 1971 CHRYSLER Newport purchased twenty years ago. Make it so that it got good gas mileage, but could still pull a 7k trailer. Came close on all, and well surpassed stock fuel economy before a forced sale (health).

Or not.

In short, buy the one that'll rev your engine in thinking about and wanting to work on it. However old it is, expect to re-wire it first. OEM harnesses.

$450 is a good asking price. The engine has been out in the weather, and there is a piece of the exhaust system [heater box] in the trunk. There are changes in the floorpan to accommodate the semi-automatic, but it might be repairable.

Not a *this* winter car.
