With the price of those tires I will not be doing any burnout contests.

Post some pics of your Mazda here.  We can share the thread.

Thanks for the compliments.

OK... Update time.

I've decided to cut the rear bumper again to tighten it up a little more.
All of the window moldings are out getting restored so right now I'm working on all the little things that need to get done before the glass goes in for the final time.

The second car is a fully stock 1971 that I bought a few years back out of California.
 
I have a Instagram page for my car and have been posting build pics from the start and built a small following of car guys.  One of my followers posted a picture of the car that he photoshopped and lowered, and said that it was a image that he took from a local Craigslist ad.  I contacted him and found the listing, bought the car sight unseen and had it shipped here.  I did a few little mechanical repairs and got it running and it's been a fun little car ever since.

It was a lucky find.

Yeah.  Both cars shared design with the Camaro of the same year.
