Survivors from the ranks of sporty Mazdas built during the past 40 years still exist in decent quantities and are generally affordable. Most surprising was the appearance of some SS 323s from the early 1980s and the realistic money being sought by vendors.  On average and if you can find one a rally-spec 4WD Familia turbo is only $2000 more.

MX-6 Turbos from the late 1980s seemed almost extinct however they have been popping up of late and challenging lovers of torque steer to preserve them. V6 versions are easier to drive and a little cheaper.

For something compact, interesting and quick that’s under $5000 and works as regular transport, consider an SP20 or the later and more expensive SP23.

323SS 1981-85 $4450 [6]
