Have a local auto appraiser give you a more detailed/correct appraisal.

'90 MX-5's usually sell for $2500-$3000 but yours can be worth a little more with so little mileage and nicer condition.

I would guess between $6500 and $9000 dedending on condition and maintenance. I would also say it would be on the lower end if it was red or white car versus a mariner blue. I would check two places for value #1: hemmengs motor news has done a great job on bringing these cars vaule it light. #2: ( pricing and dealer disscusion ) which you will have to become a member to post your question.

Also if it came with a factory hardtop it car add an extra $1000 to $1500 added value.
