Marc is right about unbuffered/non-registered issue, but it shouldn't
matter if the dimms are PC83, PC100 or PC133.

I think the issue that Marc has had with PC133 dimms is that they were
single sided (9 memory chips on one side of the dimm). Those modules won't
work with Miata, you need dimms that are double sided (9 memory chips
per side).

Kingston has some 256MB PC100 modules that should work:
