Living my teenage dreams.
Posted by Johnson [Email] (more from Johnson) on Wed, 23 Aug 2017 09:04:45
When I was 17, had just bought my first car (a $500 88 mazda 626 with 256k miles on the clock) , One of the sales guys I worked with had also bought a new car. But his was a brand new Mazda Protege MP3. I absolutely fell in love with the car, as it represented everything "street legal race car" to me at the time. Over the years I've toyed with the idea of buying one, but they were either totally unavailable to buy, too expensive, or in terrible shape.
Well a few months ago, I sold my jeep and was itching for a new project car. and while perusing craigslist, I came across a blue mazdaspeed protege, which is basically an MP3 + turbo. So big wing, sporty suspension, LSD, aggressive (for the time) styling, big exhaust, killer sound system, etc.
I bought it and drove it for a few days, it needed a bit of work, so was trying to figure out what I needed to prioritize the work and my spare cash. and So far I've done a number of things, it needs a few more. Suspension, brakes, motor mounts, VICS solenoid, and a general tune up have been done. Lots more to come.
