    Welcome aboard. What's your budget?

    I'd like to keep it under 3500 ideally around 3000 if possible, I've done some searching and it seems like we pay a premium in the DFW area.

    Any advice?

    Clean NA's are getting hard to come by, and the prices aren't getting any cheaper. This time of year a convertible will likely bring a premium price as well.

    Keep your eyes open....be willing to take a road trip for the right car.

    I've seen that one, I'm supposed to look at it on Saturday. Has been in an accident though, hit a curb apparently.

    What your thoughts, should I consider this even if it has been in an accident?

    ^Depends what was damaged. If it was just a control-arm or something, I wouldn't worry about it. If it had frame damage, I'd probably walk away.

    Bob (if it's the same Bob in Cresson I'm thinking of) is a reputable seller that's been around a long time, selling Miatas.

    Good luck. Be patient and get the best car you can afford. There are some real Miata money pits out there.

    Ya might want to pay someone to give whatever you are looking at a once-over. The newest NA is now 21 years old....

    On the Fort Worth side many of us are Fans of http://www.miatasolutions.com/ and if you live on the Dallas side you have https://trackdogracing.com/
