Texas MZ3

For an automotive enthusiast, a car is but a canvas to the imagination of the enthusiast. Imagination is a powerful tool that helps transform dreams and ideas into reality. Such imagination and dreams were brewing in Nate King’s mind when he transformed his 2010 Black Mica Pearl Mazda 3 sport hatchback from Dallas, Texas into something of his own.


Nate has always been influenced by the cars he grew up with to create his own dreams and imagination of what kinds of cars to own, what he wants it to drive like, race them, and build them from the ground up.


Enjoying his surroundings at local events to see how many cool ideas, and how much hard work other people put into their own cars; helping motivate him with his own car.

VIP-Inspired RX-8

Are pictures really worth a thousand words? Do pictures speak louder than words? Pictures are yet but an accessory to a story, just as the story of Danny Brostein’s 2004 Midnight Blue Mazda RX-8 from Chicago, Illinois unfolds before us through these pictures.


How long have you owned your RX-8?
The car, as you know, has been through more stages than I can count. I’ve owned it for five years now.

Luis’ FC RX7

Everything has beauty in some shape or form, but not everyone will see it. This can be seen with Luis Diaz’s 1991 Crystal White Mazda RX-7 FC3S GTU.


Luis has always been around Mazdas, and rotary powdered vehicles with the FC3S being his all time favorite. There is just something about the body lines, shape of the car, and the mid-80’s/early 90’s styling that gets Luis feeling some type of way that not everyone can relate to.


Feeling mesmerized by the beauty of the FC3S, this started out as a bare shell weekend project, which turned into the car you see now with the help of his mechanic dad. Now it is Luis’ daily driver, and being constantly worked on to improve every aspect of the car.

Caleb’s RX8

Sometimes the best things in life are the unexpected things. Caleb Oliva’s 2004 Velocity Red RX-8 is a prime example of something that came into his life in an unexpected way.


The love for cars was passed onto Caleb by his dad, and resulted in the short lived dream of having a Honda Civic EG hatch, but ended up with a modified Civic EK hatch. Caleb started going to street races with his friend David in the EK, and eventually David showed him what aggressive fitment and proper styling looked like.


Because of this Caleb traded the EK for a stock Honda Del Sol, and began modifying that slowly. However, even this did not last after Caleb was blown away by a RX-8 on the streets that just flew right past him, and intrigued his interests. It wasn’t until 2013 that he had the opportunity to finally get the car that took him unexpectedly; he finally got the RX-8 after his BMW E21 got totaled.

Capital City MZ3

We all start by saying “its gonna stay stock,” but eventually with time we realize that statement won’t really happen. I am Alec Lessard, and I am from the capital city of Canada; Ottawa. I personally was not thinking of modifying my sedan when I purchased it. In the Mazda community having a Mazda 3 sedan was kinda rare, and seeing one done-up nicely was like seeing a unicorn. I eventually decided to be different from the masses, and dump all my money into my 2006 Carbon Grey Mazda 3 sedan GT 2.3L.


It started off on coilovers like most people, and eventually ended up going with air suspension. I found a deal that fit my budget and decided to convert to air ride.


The front end was kept simple with a mesh grill and a urethane lip to match the OEM side skirts. Also yellow Lamin-X fog overlays were added to match the yellow center caps on the wheels.

Silver Surfer

Recently there has been a movement among a good number of car enthusiasts to select air suspension over coilovers to achieve what they want out of their own car. Air suspension has gotten more affordable as technology on this type of suspension has improved over the years. However, air suspension is for those that want to essentially “park hard,” and have multiple levels of adjustability for any daily situation. This is the case with Jovany Cuesta’s 2011 Liquid Silver Mazdaspeed 3 from Northern Virginia.


Jovany enter the car world his sophmore year of high school. One of his friends introduced him into tinkering with cars, which eventually made him realize his hidden love for cars. And of course the Fast and the Furious franchise played a big role in it as well.


The first generation Mazdaspeed 3’s were in full affect during his high school days. Jovany’s friend’s crystal white pearl MS3 started his search for one of his own, but eventually the second generation facelift was released. At first he hated the facelift; it was just “goofy” looking. But with most things, the more you read up and experience the more it will eventually grow on you. So, Jovany ended up with the thing he hated at first, but now the thing he loves the most.

Reg’s P5

Even though Mazda Fitment have been around for a number of years now, we still have a lot of things to check off our feature list for the various Mazda models out there. This is the first time we have featured a Protege5 on here; not because we don’t like them, but because we never get submissions from this model. If you want to submit your car to see if we are interested in featuring it here, make sure to email us at MazdaFitment@MazdaFitment.com. To start us off we have Reg Rivera’s 2002 Sunlight Silver Mazda Protege5 from San Francisco, California.


Growing up from one hobby of riding and messy around with BMX bikes to another hobby of being able to drive and modify cars was thanks to Reg’s friend Alex.


Reg bought his Protege5 after his 190e Mercedes motor went out. He wanted three things from the next car: rear wheel drive, hatchback/wagon, and fast. Reg only ended up with one of those three as we can see. The main reason he wanted a wagon was to fit his big 18″ inch sub-woofer in the back, which fit perfectly; you could hear him from a mile away.
