Project Junkyard Jewel: 1988 Mazda 323 GT

So, I was looking for parts for another project in the junkyard one day when I spotted this diamond in the rough (quite literally) from across the yard. I recognized the distinctive intake pipe and knew immediately what  i was looking at. $300 to buy it from the yard and a couple months of paperwork later and it was mine.

3 days after I bought it it was running. Over the 5 years I had it, i learned a great deal about working on cars and my GT benefited by receiving all sorts of upgrades and enhancements, such as new shocks, lowering springs, MX6 front lip, Subaru GL foglights with snap on covers, Work Equip 03 replica wheels, 195/55-15 tires, full header back 2.5″ exhaust, Exedy clutch, Toyota MR2 seats with adjustable bolsters, 8 ball shift knob, Momo steering wheel, tinted corner markers, turn signals and taillights, rare factory decklid spoiler, and more.

 

There were likely less than a thousand of these ever made, and it was a very fun car and project. On to the pics!
