New owner as of today

I should introduce myself, I am an older car and motorcycle nut of the 59 vintage.
I have one bad habit and that is being cheap. So a $1800 93 red MX6 with 128,000 km was too good to pass up.
It will be my spring and fall car and for those days where more than 2 people need seats.
Winter is a 93 B2600i 4x4 and summer is a 98 Z3. Bikes 2006 DRZ400SM, 74 MG Eldorado 850 and a 93 Bimota DB2.

I would like to do a few things to the car but mostly I like the simple look. The days for wings and serious ground affects are past me now, but maybe with the right car.
This one should just have some nice wheels (Suggestions are welcome, but I have an idea of a Black center with polished outer edge and a ⅜"trim of matching red on the outermost edge so it almost looks like the tire has a red stripe. Something from the 60's) that can sport some low profile sticky tires, good in the rain as that is what spring and fall are all about in the wet coast of Canada.
Black out the windows and perhaps wrap the top in black so it is all one color.
Lastly a set of headers and an exhaust that lets the true music of that V6 come out. If you know of any products that are better than others, let me know please.

Thanks
Catimann

Welcome to the board!

That's low mileage, and a good price if the body is in good condition (as it should be for a BC car). There aren't many MX6 left nowadays, especially ones with little rust and that haven't been messed up.

Just got it home, the V6 is nice but it needs better tires. Like I said I have a 93 Mazda truck and it has not been as well taken care of as this car so it shows some surface rust on the exposed bolts here and there in the engine bay and so on. I expected this car to be the same but it is as if it is ten years younger.

I will take some pictures and post them soon.

Welcome Catimann.. Another Canadian..!
Nice find with the 6.. and you cant beat the mileage..
I bought my '94 in July '95 w/300km .. now at only 131,102km.. Not my daily ride, so you've got a lot of Km's to go.
I'm running GT Radial Champiro 228ís - 215/55/16, installed on Mille Miglia MM11-2(Plus) 16x7.5 rims. Tires are not performance tires, but they're good for our BC weather..and real good in the dry. Been thru various brands over the years, tho, like who hasn't...
Anyway, welcome..and enjoy your ride...
