Surfin' CL - Check these lil' gems

Just was surfing while the girlie was napping. Thought I would share some fun little dream projects.


First up! It's so cheesey, but I honestly think that with some work it could turn out a total sleeper.

http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/1025818565.html


You are basically looking at the merc version of the 323 gtx that humped a miata. Rumor has it that you can mod this turd to run low 13's at about 16psi. Wouldnt that be funny?


and another ...

http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/997404925.html

Thinking that if the frame is straight, this would be a really fun project. Can't say enough about the gtx, so I won't say anything at all. If I wasnt unemployed right now, I would be out looking at it.

Sounds like that guy doesn't really want to get rid of that Mazda.

the capri really is a turd(a FWD turd at that). $2500 will get you a decent(not mint) early miata, which was a MUCH better car.

Yeah but how much more room is in a Capri than in a Miata? Those Miata's are freaking small!

my sister used to have a capri and from what i remember it wasnt much larger on the inside than my miata. it did have a virtually unusable backseat though.

BUY the second one

I don't care what kind of shape it's in. Those things are rare as hell and fun to boot.
If you don't I know a guy that may just fly out and buy it himself.

If your buddy is willing to fly out and buy it, I would go with him to check it out. All you have to do is get a hold of me and I will drive him out to see it. Believe me that mazda would be in my garage if I had a job right now. It's been a dream car of mine for years.

As for the Capri, I just thought it was funny. I saw that it came with a factory turbo and laughed about the possibilities it would hold. Then I started looking around and found a guy who threw an intake, exhaust, and a MBC on his and was making 15psi, lol. I got a chuckle out of the idea of making a 13 second car out of that POS. The shame it would bring ... priceless.

Craigslist holds so many, "what if" projects. So evil to just casually surf.

Love the 323 GTX...

This guy was on eBay not too long ago:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Mazda-323-GTX-SCCA-Land-Speed-Record-177-race-drag_W0QQitemZ170293663976QQcmdZViewItemQQptZRace_Cars_Not_Street_Legal_?hash=item170293663976&_trksid=p3911.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A727|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318

A bit pricier - but talk about bang for buck.

You could probably recoupe your $ at the street races in one weekend. :P

It would be easier to just get a first gen mx6/probe. Our turbos are small and they use our turbos as an upgrade for theirs.
