damn, feel sorry for the yanks! they're great cars! we've got them here in adelaide and they've got them in japan!

haha! there is three version's;
the GT, non-turbo, 140hp.
the GT-X, turbo, 180hp.
the GT-R, turbo, intercooled, 207hp.

the GT-R is the preferred model that i'm searching for, although, the GT-X model would also be greatly appreciated.

anyone wanna give me there on these cars? the GT-X and GT-R that is.

Some people were toying with the idea of swapping the drivetrain onto a MX-5 to get a 4WD MX-5.

As for the car it was similar to the Pulsar Gti-R. Both turbocharged, both 4WD and both built for rallying. But neither were sucessful until prices went down and people realising that it was a good base for tuning.

And because of it's age it's probably one of the fastest hot hatchbacks you can buy for it's money.

Could the US version be the hatchback version of the Mazda 3??? If it is, I like it. Some pics might help.

[EDIT] oops..didnt see the links ... ignore this post.

Boy you sure do like those hatchbacks dont you I think theyre cool looking cars. I had never heard of this model until you mentioned it. Is it just a Austrailian thing?

We only got 1500 GTXs in '88-89. Plenty rare, and hard to come by (though fairly cheap). http://sturtevant.com/323gtx/forsale.htm



I know of people taking the engines out and bolting them into Ford Festivas...
