1998, Mazda 323f 1.8 Executive.

This was the first car I bought, and as such has a special place in my heart.
I wanted to buy a Toyota MR2, so I got myself a £2000 loan and...... bought the first japanese car I saw!
Slowly modifying it over the next few years, going through phases such as a big aluminium 'BGW', PS2 install in the glovebox, I even managed to take it on track a number of times!
I started adding actual bodywork enhancements such as a full jap style (tasteful) bodykit, Mazdaspeed adjustable damping sports suspension, upper and lower front braces, rear brace, and Dotz GT-R alloy wheels.

Alas, the time came when it just wasn't practical to use as a daily (due to the on/off clutch etc) that I bought a new daily, and relegated this to the role of 'track toy' Out came the 12" sub and xbox 360 from the boot, as well as the entire interior trim. And as with all 'projects', one day I got tired of repairing other peoples expensive mistakes and made the decision to break/sell both this, and the GT. :(

Now, this car has been fully striipped and the shell scrapped. And the son of a bitch who bought both cars still hasn't fully paid me for them! You still owe me £270 you bastard!
