I'm looking at buying another mx5, a mk1 specifically. I'm spending around £2k, maybe a bit less, maybe bit more. It seems like mk1 values are on the rise, and looking at cars for sale at this price, some of them are advertised as having rust issues; while others are advertised as being clean and not in need of repairs.
Is a relatively rust free mk1 at £2,000 realistic?
I am fully aware there are few cars "rust free" but if I could get my hands on a mk1 that will go say 2 years through MOTs without requiring rust work, that would be great, but I don't know if this goal is realistic.
