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!
