I have a 1999 Mazda Miata 10th anniversay edition with the 6 speed manual. It has around 105,000 miles. It was bought at 80,000 miles and the guy who had it before hand really did take good care of it. Both of my brothers have owned and crashed it at different times and have repaired it. After one of the last accidents, it had an overheating problem so they stopped driving it, and it wasn't driven for nearly two years. Recently I replaced the timing belt, waterpump, gave it new oil and filter, pumped out the old gas and put in all new gas, and then it wouldn't start. I got it towed to the dealership and they have not been able to figure out why it is not starting. They confirmed that the timing is correct, and they know it is getting fuel, but they believe it is something electrical and refused to work on it anymore. I know its not worth anything, and I don't really care about money. I don't know what to do next, but I would like to get this car running just as a fun beater car. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated!

blown head gaskets often do that when it overheated
