Gianni's cars part 12: 1991 Mazda Miata

At the end of September we bought a 1991 Miata with the "A" package.  It is a stock, two owner car with 46K miles on it.  The previous owner owned it for the last 10 years.  I wanted one when they came out in late 1989, but there was no way I could afford a new car.  All we have done to it has been change the plugs and ignition wires, replace the 10 year old tires, remove the "baby teeth" and upgrade the horn to an air horn after an SUV almost took me out on 405 on the drive home after buying it.  Other than that we've just been driving it...

Update: Where is White Rabbit now?

A couple months ago I sold my 1984 Rabbit GTI on Bring a Trailer.  I would recommend using them if you have an interesting classic for sale.  The fees were reasonable as compared to EvilBay and you can avoid the fun of selling via Criagslist.  It was also good in that I knew the car was going to go to a good home where it's originality would be preserved.

My former car was bought by Ted in Newport Beach, CA.  Ted has continued the work we were doing to preserve the car.  He has fixed the deteriorating rear seat and had a dent wizard take out some of the dents.  Ted recently took the car to Cars and Coffee in Irvine, CA.  I always thought that would be a good venue to show it off.  Thanks Ted for sending these.
