There's some fantastic looking 323s you have there, and the colour you have done the engine bay is truly gonna set it out from the crowd.
Its gonna be a bewdy when its finished.
Was wondering how the dvd for the old skool rotor cruise from the 90s from Padstow to the Colo was going dude...eagerly still waiting :D

Enjoying this, it's very inspiring. Like the tacho dash, never seen one of those in this country but presumably they exist somewhere. Would love one for my wagon.

Forgive me for posting up a wanted request within your project thread, presuming the donor car is doomed anyway, would you be up for selling the square headlights, headlight holders and grille off it for my wagon project? Would be very appreciative of it!!

i'm just impressed that you're putting it all back together

know a number of guys who get everything apart, and it all just sits in boxes for a decade :?

great effort man. Good too see someone NOT putting a rotor in a hatchy.

also I know a couple of those hatches on the previous page very well. Some nice cars there but also some overdone ones as well. Yours will be damn near perfect.

ah man, i cant stand those rubish 13 inch modgies they use in nz, and hotwires...

so ugly, and those hotwires are just 20 dollar wheels that people stoped useing in the early 80s.......
i would never spoil a 323 with those shit rims.

Sounds like every second old Mazda and Toyota here…

Aww YES.. the Mazda equivalent of the KP61 Starlet.

Funny, when I was temporarily homeless and kicked outta my parents house for buying a 79 Pontiac Grand Le Mans, without a driver's license.. I slept in a 79 Mazda GLC, white, coupe owned by a neighbor.. that just sat in his driveway. Who knew it would be worth restoring. LOL :wink:

It sucks that BOTH cars are very rare nowadays. :(
