    Old Man remembering the old days

    My son showed me this site, starting a new project with him.

    I used to fix up RX2's & RX3's & race them thru the hills at nights
    back in the late 70's early 80's.
    Trying to dig up some of my old Mazda photo's, found this one.

    :shock: wow........mazda's sure have gotten alot more expensive
    than my old days....

    Glad to find a place where guys are still playing with those old mazda's. :tu:

    Welcome to JNC!

    Where are you from? Update the location in your profile. :tu:
    Would love to see some of the photo's of your old RX's and new father/son project. You need to upload them to an image sharing site and copy/paste the forum code in to your post.
    I am sure a lot of members would benefit from your knowledge and experience.

    Thanks ToolZ
    Bringing back alot of old memories, great times. 8)
    Talking with my son, we did alot of random things to our cars
    back then.
    We were all about lightening up the weight & suspension.
    Gutted the inside of the cars, built roll cages inside, moved the
    battery to the trunk to offset the driver weight (used welding cables)
    Installed HEAVY sway bars with urethane busshings, installed
    camber/caster adj plates atop the shock towers with Bilstein shocks.
    etc, etc

    The best......... we installed aircraft landing lights on our high beams
    to light up the canyons at nights :twisted:
