THE most hilarious thing happened today. So I recently posted up that CL ad for the '93 Miata LE. Short story, the '93 LE's were painted Brilliant Black with a red interior and BBS wheels, etc., but this one was repainted Sunburst Yellow (Also, super rare but not the original paint.)
So I contact the seller and we're talking back and forth about it, and I decide to go to Miata.net to see if I could find some info. So I go into a Price Discussion board to see how much I should pay for it if I wanted it and a member brings up how this car was in a Denver CL ad and people bashed on it and blah blah. So I'm commenting about how it's way too much ($5400) and the guy that owns it now paid too much for it and I might try to lowball the freak out of him.
THEN the owner emails me randomly and says he was interested in what he could find out about the car and lo and behold he finds the thread that a "Parabolous" started on miata.net. So even after I sort of trashed the car and the price he stills wants me to come take a look at the car and be interested in it. He did however, tell me why the cost is so high and what the car means to him.
I just about shit my pants reading his email because I thought he was going to go off on me but it was freaking hilarious. I decided to stop posting in the miata thread because he can now see what everyone is saying as well as me. I laughed my ass off in the office when I read his email.
I'm still interested in the car but now he knows that I would ask for a lower price because I would repaint it the original color or just cover it up with plasti-sauce. Haha huge fail on my part.
The car is also about 2 hours away and for me that takes away the value of it haha
