Fire damaged Miata for $500! Should it be the new rebuild project?

Someone told me about a Mazda MX-5 Miata for sale that caught on fire. The fire was contained to the interior. What do you guys think?

  1. SAM – Why was there a fire in the car, what caused the fire? I would suspect electrical system … that may mean the wiring harness should be looked at. What kind of damage can you not see to the structure of the car. The 500 dollars is cheap. But my thinking is, I'd recondition the roof and rear window, and I worry about structural damage to the windshield frame. The seats and carpet and dash panel and interior panels should be redone, they are gonna have stains and smoke smell etc….repairing flood or fire damage in a home, you should take the interior and top down to the studs and treat properly and inspect accordingly. I think you would put more into the car to do all this work than it's worth. Pulling a number out of my but, I think you would be looking at 8k-12k to do the whole thing and repaint the car. Sam I'd say the car might be worth $8-10k, but I don't think you are going to get any money out of it. Is this a labor of love for making a video, or do you need to make money on this. I don't think the return is there for the love you will put into it. For making videos …. I say walk away. For a labor of love and maybe a very little profit maybe…..but leaning toward no. car needs a lot of work.
