1990 Mazda Protege

A fairly rare car, the AWD Mazda Protege is the non-turbo lame duck cousin to the Familia GTX and GTR available elsewhere in the world. My car is slowly but surely being added upon and upgraded as my funds allow. Soon to be mods include suspension, brakes, and the ever popular Mazda BPT engine swap. To make things a bit more difficult on myself, I've decided to give it the GTR treatment, a far rarer engine and transmission to find. All modifications will of course be posted on GRM so that the world can see my folly.

Looking good! It may currently lack a turbo but you have 2 more driven wheels than my Protege!
