2k: A Fistfull of Capella: 1983 Mazda 626

When it comes to the clean car feature search, there are a few things we look for in a late model car.  Let’s check the short list; manual transmission, original owner, low miles, nice condition, and stock — if a car meets those requirements it really doesn’t matter if it is a Yugo or a Saab — like this next piece. Find this 1983 Mazda 626 5psd offered for $2,450 in Danville, CA via craigslist.  Tip from Kaibeezy.

The GC generation Mazda Capella was released in 1982 and in a departure
from previous rear-drive versions, it was front-engine,
front-wheel-drive.  As much as this may make purists throw small
tantrums,it was, arguably, a better car in every way from the previous
version as it introduced a turbocharged engine and independent
suspension at all four corners.

This Mazda 626 is really well preserved for a 31 year old car, especially for a budget workhorse like a Mazda sedan.  I’m no Nostradamus, but I can say with some certainty that a used Mazda 626 will never be collectible, and most have been treated poorly…but not this one.  It is spotless.
