Now it looks less like a four wheeled rapist
It's too angry.
Not even Miata's are allowed to be cute and innocent anymore. Why do our cars have to reflect our species?
Maybe depending on condition.
But "far cheaper" right now? No. Probably in 5 years when clean NAs start to get "rarer" because so many are being destroyed or overriced/stanced. Kinda like 240s are now.

Well i've restored another mx5 onto the road from the grave, but it sure as fuck taught me a lot about cars, to never buy a car off a woman and to never buy a car with problems again.
Hence "depends on condition"
Of course older cars with fewer miles are going to be more expensive than newer cars with fewer miles. Thats just car math and supply and demand. Older cars with fewer miles are rarer and deserve to be worth more money (again may vary on depending on numerous circumstances such as the car's capability, features etc.)
