Default My New 1978 RX3SP

Picked up this Mazda RX3 in Puerto Rico, bringing it up to date, change the carburator to a new Holley 650 Double pump, order new spark plug, ignition cap, rotor, Mazda RX7 1985 rear end, and a new Aluminum Radiator. Will post more picture soon. Glad to be back, I used to have one back in 1977 when I was in the military. Got the same color only this one is a 1978 last year of the RX3SP.

Awesome car. I just picked up a 78 SP from GA last weekend. I am over in Daytona and would like to take a look at it sometime.

Mine is much more of a basket case than yours and would like to see what a good condition one looks like. Mine appears to have been modernized and bastardized here and there.

Good deal. I still need to get tags and insurance on it. If you can believe it that picture is flattering event with the crumbled fender etc. Its pretty beat up.
