The Mazda MX-5 Miata is essentially a lightweight two-passenger roadster with a front mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. The gem you see above was converted into a makeshift pickup truck of sorts and posted on Craigslist a while back with the title “1990 Miata with 22,000 miles on the clock.” It was listed for $6,000 or best offer, and apparently was purchased, but not maintained, so it fell into disrepair.

“In order to turn his Miata into something entirely different, the owner of this car had the wheelbase stretched and then added a truck bed, while leaving the fabric roof intact. We’re pretty sure its handling characteristics are no longer excellent, while the 0-60 time was surely influenced too, and not in a good way,” reports Car Scoops.
