New play toy

Well i have really been hesitant on building up the focus because it is my only car. So i found something cheap to play with, i dont have it yet but it will be mine its a 1988 mazda 323 gtx awd turbo. Someone in my area is selling one for cheap and i found out its a rare car. Well anyways my friend and i were looking up some things on it and for 1000$ you can do intake exhaust and chip and get it to 180 so im pretty excited i will let everyone know how things look later. Here is the car on auto trader check it out

They are rare. I was into Proteges before the Foci. I was at one point thinking of taking the engine and AWD drivetrain out of a 323 GTX and putting it on the Protege. That would've been a sick little car. Don't hesitate to get it! Let me know if you need motor help, been there, done that.

The page just loaded. $1000 !!!!! Oh man I'd be on that in a second! BUY IT!

A buddy of mine had a light blue 323 sedan and let me tell you....ten years ago, that thing with all the mods he had on it at the time was dropping a lot jaws and shuttin' fools up at the track.

im going to see if i can talk them down some on the price but from what you guys are saying it might be worth every penny of 1100 and even more so knowing you guys can even help with what to do with that.

It might be an insult to offer them anything less than a grand.
