few odds and ends, its a base model so no luxury stuff like power mirrors, windows, dimmer, abs, etc etc etc. the repaint is descent but you can tell right away.

1991, no emblem, should have the mazda sticker under the driver light.



putting together a list of things to do, considering adding a Super Pro bushing kit when i swap the suspension. I'll at least do a coolant reroute and water by-pass. Will keep the P/S off and hopefully have a pretty solid machine. Just gotta sell old parts to buy new goodies.

Good stuff Scott. Let me know if you want some help switching some stuff over, the hour some drive would be no big deal at all. I'm game so long as you have some way to heat your garage.
