Bought car w/38,150 miles. Fix brokes are a clutch slave & inner shift boot, total of ~$56.
Routine maint. includes wiper blades, plugs & wires, 2 oil changes, diff and trans fluid changes, total of ~$134
Total fuel consumption averaged 26.52 MPG, high tank of 32.87, low tank of 22.88
Fuel cost/mile = .04262
repair/maint. cost/mile = .019

I will have to admit it has offered about the least expensive 'smile per mile' of anything I have ever owned.
Drop top, reliable, handling/stopping superb.
