1997 Mazda Miata M-Edition
Purchased:  November 30, 2001      Sold:  November 15, 2008

Our Miata M-Edition was purchased in Ft. Myers, Florida for $13,750.  We believed this to be a fair price at the time since it was the high-end "M-Edition" model, in pristine condition, and had only 9,954 miles on the odometer.  The car was previously owned by a little old man in his mid-80's, who sold it to buy a Mercedes.  Later he told us that he had regretted the decision and wished he had his Miata back!

In February, 2004 we relocated from Cape Coral, Florida to Tucson, Arizona, taking our Miata with us of course!  In June, 2006, we purchased a Mazdaspeed MX-5, so
now we own "his & hers" Miatas!  This page is her car, click here to see his.

There was a house being built next door and another across the street from our Cape Coral house, so please forgive the unsightly backgrounds.

NOTE:  During 2008, Bill was diagnosed with 4 melanoma skin cancers.  They have been removed, but the sun is now Bill's deadly enemy.  Because of this; on 11/15/08 the 1997 Miata was sold, Bonnie took over the 2005 Mazdaspeed MX-5, and Bill purchased a 2006 Ford Explorer with heavily tinted windows and no sunroof.  The Explorer is actually a fine vehicle, but it is not a fun ride like the Miata!  :(

Barely over 10K miles on the car when I took this picture.  I've driven 166 of those miles.
