If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
1990 Mazda Miata Convertible We wanted to combine the reliability and quality of a Japanese car with the excitement and emotion of an in expensive, lightweight, rear-drive convertible, says Bob Hall, product planning manager at Mazdas Irvine, California, facility and one of the visionaries behind the creation of the Miata. The idea just seemed in credibly logical to us. Happily, Mazda remained true to that idea. For consignment, a 1 owner low mileage (22,064 original miles) sports car that harkens back to the days of the Triumphs and MGs but without the spots on the garage floor and with electrics that actually work! Small car with powerful engine, CHECK! Right color with convertible top, CHECK! Sporty interior with stick shifter, CHECK! Optioned out with the A package, CHECK! Turn the key and drive away with a smile on your face, CHECK...IT OUT! Exterior Classic Red bathes the curved hidden headlight panels on this sports car. Small enough to be thrown around corners, and powerful enough to be able to handle it, shes in low mileage form and well cared for in rust free condition. Garaged all its life, our owner lovingly cared for her even retaining its original tires. Round and round she undulates as it forms the Miata which in German means prize or reward . A black convertible top in excellent condition, with a clear rear plastic window, and aluminum alloy wheels, and it is definitely a prize to be had, right out of our halls and into your garage. Interior Opening the top reveals a nice black cloth high back dual bucket interior passenger compartment. Everything is within arms reach in here, showing its original dash, leather wrapped steering wheel which turns power assisted steering, and an AM/FM/Cassette stereo with anti-theft coding. Black carpet covers the floors and of course is in excellent condition. Lets go for a quick ride on a curved back uninhabited road! Drivetrain Under the hood we see the original 1.6-liter 4-cylinder power plant with EFI. A 5-speed manual transmission is on back, and all is well preserved under here. Just a slight bit of corrosion on the cast aluminum parts, but all else is near perfect. A 4.30 rear axle helps get it on with a press of the accelerator. Zoom, zoom, zoom as Mazda says. Undercarriage Up on our lift we note some slight surface rust but certainly no invasive rust and all structurally sound unibody construction well sorted and sported out. Rear wheel drive with independent coil springs all over and power discs on all 4 corners. Nice floorpans and rockers and no real oil leaks to speak of so the garage floor will remain clean. Drive-Ability Slipping inside I had shades of doing the same in my TR-6. Although this car assured me it was going to start! While the car starts and idles fine when driving there is a distinctive miss and it needs a major tune up as the consigner also stated, and the A/C will need a redux and a change over to the new refrigerant. All else was working perfectly. A reliable sports car, no drips, just fun and low mileage so it can be enjoyed for a long time by the new owner. Spend a little time and money on a good tune up, and maybe do the A/C, but you always have the convertible top to lower so its not a must. A real nice example and definitely keeping in tune with its namesake as a prize!
