RX2 in junkyard

Found an RX-2 in the junkyard off the 99 freeway in Madera/Fresno. The car was pretty damn complete still with only the back seat and some badges missing. The rest of the car was still there.

NOTEABLES. Hood was jacked and worthless, glass was in great shape, driver door was beat up pretty bad and the dash was 100 percent complete. The motor and trans were still in it. Twin dizzy. Other then that I don't remember too much. The front seats were nice and the color was light metallic blue. I dont' know much else so if you want to take the trip it's out there.

I don't really deal with Mazda's. I'm a Toyota fan I just know alot of people are looking for them. After I sold my RX-4 I swore off the rotaries. But if I find stuff I like to tell people where it's at so they don't go to waste.

I'm also working on getting a couple RX-3's that a friend of mine found up north.

The seats are black, not blue. And they are ripped. The dash is cracked all over.
The instrumentation is good. The bumpers are in good shape.

And yes, that is the one that Kory and I pulled the parts off of.

I remember the car being light green. And I took most of the good stuff of value... that was still in good condition. Minus the bumpers and glass, just about everything was destroyed.
