You are bidding on a 1992 Monster Miata. Good, clean ones that are not overdone are hard to find and that describes this car. I bought it a few years ago for summer cruise-in and show events while I have been accumulating parts to get my Sunbeam Tiger back on the road. The Miata has been a summer fun drive when I would normally drive the Tiger. Now that the Tiger is almost ready to go, I am offering the Monster Miata for sale. The car has been professionally appraised (copy included with photos) at $22,000. (A newer version by another conversion company costs over $40,000 for a turn-key car.) Since everyone wants a bit of a discount, I have a very low reserve of $18,500. I believe the market value us considerably more than that and that is the least that the car is worth to me. I have no financial reason to sell it, so I'll keep it before I'll let it go for less. Inspections are welcome. Test drives by serious buyers can be arranged in Central Illinois. Overall, it offers great and reliable performance in a sleeper sports car. It's a lot of fun. Good luck.Pluses56,XXX miles
