• I always thought the combo of Mazdaspeed and Protege5 would have been pure genius. In that era, I was driving a SVT Contour which replaced a 1993 SE-R, so I was quite interested in these as similar but wasn't in the market…

  • I'd be very surprised to find no rust on this example from the northeast. My '03 Protege LX had rust starting on the leading edge of the hood, and in the lower edges of the quarters by year four.
    Loved the light, agile feel of it, and the harmony of the brakes, steering, and suspension. Always wished I'd held out for one of these to compliment my Mazdaspeed Miata.
