My favourite Mk3 edition. This will be a fantastic buy for someone.
Sad to see it up for sale.


Thats stunning


Such a lovely example but a shame to see it here, its owner was such a great man.


Plenty of MX-5s with mods around. This is one of the very rare ones where everything adds to the car and looks so right. Striving for perfection is one thing, achieving it is another. Neil pulled it off.


Now that, is gorgeous. Some lucky so-and-so should snap that up.
