Hi guys been lurking for a while and only just registered.
My name is Russell and I live in the UK. This is my Mazda 323 1500 wagon...
She has been my daily driver for the last three years and is a cracking car.
Shes done a shade over forty thousand miles and drives lovely. There are a few issues like the crinkled rear quarter and one of the rear doors is starting to go but she is quite solid. The UK weather is starting to take its toll and plans are for a little light restoration soon.
The motor runs like a Swiss watch although the head gasket did go at around thirty thousand, I think this was due to it being used for short journeys for most of its life.
I know about Hirsts and two others, seems they are a bit thin on the ground over here, but she is such a lovely thing that I cant bear to part with it. I bought some bits off Richard (Mazdaman) a while back, what a nice guy to deal with.
Anyway thats me and my wagon. Ive been browsing around this site and there are some cracking motors on here.
