Oh yes it is. Yes yes yes yes yes. Apparently I have been a very bad boy, and Santa is punishing me. This is one I NEVER thought I would run across in the wild, and it’s FOR SALE!!! What did I do to deserve this kind of punishment?

This is a GTX. Just in case any of you don’t remember, this is the street version of Mazda’s rally car. That means it is driving all four wheels with a turbocharged 1.6L engine. Only 1,243 of these little beasts were sold in the U.S. in 1988 & 1989. This one has been fitted with a set of Rial wheels which actually look pretty nice on this one.

I didn’t just look at the double wing on the back though. Below is the ‘up the skirt’ shot, showing the rear axle/IRS setup that proves this isn’t just a 323 hatch with the wing on the back. I couldn’t resist of course, I had to call and find out the price. My Hispanic friend that answered the phone couldn’t tell me much other than the price. $1500. I’m going to go an cry in a corner now.
