It keeps going, and going, and going

1992 Mazda MX-3 GS 2dr Hatchback
Had this car in Germany when I was
stationed there. 143 mph certified,
on the AUTOBAHN (not here in the US).
Great mileage during my 2 and a half
day trip from DC to western Montana
just recently. 37 to a gallon using
the cruise control.
No rust, don't expect any, aluminum
Still gets more attention than a
friend's newer sports car, even
thought it's technically an economy
Handling is incredible. Front drive
really grabs the pavement, hard! I've
ridden in smaller cars that cost twice
as much and the MX-3 GS would easily
outhandle them; especially in corners.
I'd have dropped the 2.5 KLZE motor in
it with a base 200 HP and 200 Ft. lbs.
Despite it's material, it's still a
heavy car, 3389 GVWR is high. Get rid
of the rear seats altogether. Larger
