Daniel Magdaleno originally bought his 1990 Mazda Protege as a daily beater after his first car gave out. Being his first manual car, the love for driving soon took over, and he decided to modify the unlikely platform. Taking inspiration from the internet, he learned what could be done with a little elbow-grease.
