Beached: 1991 Mazda MX-5 Miata

All kinds of fancy schmancy car events happen at the beach at places like Pebble Beach, Amelia Island, or Boca Raton...but sometimes the best cars are for driving around on the beach instead of showing at the beach.  Like this 1991 Mazda MX-5 offered for $7000 near Grover Beach, CA via craigslist.  Tip from Sean who writes: The answer is always Miata, even at Pismo Beach

From the seller:

Hello I'm selling my 91 Miata. One of a kind. It currently has a 1.8L swap with a Megasquirt. 3 inch lift with 15 inch wheels wrapped with 27 inch General Grabber tires. It has a sick blast pipe with a roll bar ,Street faction rear bash bar, Street faction seat rail,A MOMO authentic seat with Momo steering wheel and detachable hub. Also comes with a 5 foot L.E.D whip, 34 inch L.E.D Bar and 7 inch round L.E.D Jeep head lights. 1.8l brake and caliper swap,Diamond Wheels, Smoked turn signals. 

This car turns heads and is awesome on the streets,dirt roads and the dunes. 
It's ready for a turbo set up if you want to go that route also. 

See a better answer to the question?


  1. the driver look like Poncharello

  2. Guaranteed this would get more look at car n' coffee than an Aventador

  3. That Saab the other day is soo much better done than this. Needs either smaller tires or bigger fenders if you drive it over anything bigger than a speed bump. 3 inches of suspension travel then goodbye fenders.

    Fun idea if done right I suppose.
