Up for sale is a 1994 Mazda NA Miata (1st generation, NA) with 85,6XX miles and a clean title.
It is being sold because it is rarely driven and could be better used by a fellow enthusiast that would drive it more often.
Asking $9,500 or best offer (OBO).
It is painted Laguna Blue (paint code: 6W) which was only available in 1994 and 1995.
The original owner replaced the factory cloth seats with custom leather black seats.
The seats have Blue leather on the seat back that is very similar to the Laguna Blue exterior paint, yellow leather accents, and Miata stitched in blue on the headrest.
They look as if they came from the factory.
The car comes equipped with the relatively rare factory R Package, available from 1994-1997, which was meant for the more hardcore enthusiast.
It included Bilstein shocks, stiffer springs, larger sway bars, a rear trunk spoiler, front air dam, rear bumper diffuser, alloy wheels, and a Torsen limited slip differential (LSD). It eliminated the option for power steering, an automatic transmission, or a leather interior in the name of saving weight.
The car also comes with air conditioning (see below), which was the only other available option when the R Package was selected.
The car has the factory 14 BBS forged aluminum wheels (only ~10.5 lbs each) wrapped in 195/55R14 Toyo Proxes T1R tires with moderate tread depth left (~1/4).
The car comes with the following additional items:Color-matched Laguna Blue hard top in great condition and functioning rear window defroster.
Extra set of side sills
Extra set of door cards with arm rests (current door cards do not have arm rests)
Vinyl tonneau cover
Box of miscellaneous Miata parts (e.g. emblems, speakers, etc.)
All maintenance records since new are available, although the second owner performed most of his own maintenance and is relatively undocumented.
Maintenance spreadsheet available here:

For a 23 year old car, the paint is in very good shape.
There are some scratches on the rear and front bumpers, as well as a few chips here and there.
Front bumper spoiler has scratches.
The soft top works well and has no holes although the ring for the rear window zipper is broken and can easily be replaced with something more aesthetically pleasing than the current key ring.
There is a small chip in the driver's side of the windshield.
This car has never seen salt, having been rarely driven in the winter and residing exclusively in southern California and Portland, Oregon.
The drivers seat is showing some wear on the left side bolster as well as a spot in the seat bottom.
There are some minor scratches around the cupholders.
The rearview mirror is beginning to oxidize underneath the glass in one corner.
The steering wheel has some divots out of it.
Everything else is in very good shape and functions as expected.
Electronics: the radio and speakers work well.
Air conditioning is non-functioning.
I am not sure why the A/C doesnt work.
Prior owner said it just needs a charge, but I havent bothered since I drive the car almost exclusively with the top down and having no need for the A/C.
