1988 Mazda 323 GTX 4WD Turbo - My 13th Car I have ever owned
Only 2,000 of these GTX models were imported to america. These cars are
unique, rare and fun to drive. This is a five speed on the 2.2l engine
pushing 14psi rated 190-200HP, not stock as in extra parts and after market
helped produce more horse power.
Yes it is a 4x4, 4WD, AWD, how ever you want to put it... all the tires
turn (think subaru). It's been lowered with full adjustable shocks and
coil-overs. Strut bar and 4 disk brakes with the front slotted. It has snow
tires that have 95% tread (basically new)
Original paint, engine has been redone, Miata differential. Lots of other
stuff I forget that have been done before my owning time with it. But for
how fast it is with the turbo and all, I
get 21 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city =]
Should be great for the snow or rally. It used to have a roll cage in it
but I cut it out (i kept it though) It was basically built to rally but I
never done any of that. I got 10 years of records from previous owner of it
passing DEQ every 2 years perfectly, when it was my turn to get the tags,
it past right up no problems!
I get lots of compliments driving it around! This GTX was taking care of
and went through some money. On my part, it just consumed a lot of my time
to make it look this nice since I bought it.
If you ever find one of these... "jump on it" - Zoom Zoom!
1988 Mazda 323 GTX first Drive
Ok, I did drive it out of the garage, but other than that, this is the
fiirst time this car has moved with the new (to me) engine and tranny, or
at all under its own power in a long, long time. I kept it short, since it
has no Exhaust, and the tag is
1.8L turbocharged mazda 323 gtx
This a buddys car at the Dyno day that Phantasm
Motorsport. Car sounds so good. The screamer pipe really sets this car off.
Fast spooling turbo on a light weight
car that super original. I love this car!!! There is more to come from this
ride. Custom mazda 323 was putting out appx. 350-400whp on the Dyno that nite.
SCCA Winter RallyCross
We were looking for something with a little more motorized energy and
dropped by the first RallyCross event of the 2008-2009 winter season. The
Arctic Alaska Region of the SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) hosts several
car racing events throughout the year, but in my opinion, the rally racing
is by far the most fun. More shows at www.alaskahdtv.com
