I may have to be excommunicated from the SE-R religion. Now that my '92 classic is dead, I've been considering my options. I have considered rebuilding the motor like the "beast" buildup on se-r.net but I'm also considering just selling it for whatever I can get. Last night I drove a 2003 MX5 Miata. Wow! Definitely has more power than my SE-R (before dead of course). The tach needle just zings toward the redline, he short throw shifter, the snick-snick feel of the transmission, the handling. I loved it. The only thing not to love is that I'm 6' 3" and I don't fit at all w/ the top up and w/ the top down my head sticks above the windshield (think Disney character "Goofy" in his convertible and you've got the basic idea). My SE-R has plenty of headroom, just wondering how much money it would take to get that kind of feel.

Our cars don't Blue Book for very much, especially if you've modded it. It would be more worth your while to keep it around as a "fun" car and get something else that you can drive around. That's what I'll be doing when I get a Mazda3 5-door next year.

Invest in a JDM motor, upgrade the suspension about 1500 dollars total. Can you handle a car note and insurance cost? Its good to have no car note and increase in insurance. Something to think about.

my mom has a 01 limited edition miata. great handling but the thing is a pig. my stock nx2000 would have walked it. but its a great car none the less. i say look into the new mx-5's the 05s to be exact. them things are the new hotness.
