Eric Lehr 2009 Mazdaspeed 3 TBGLIVE 1

Eric Lehr found himself behind the wheel of his 2009 Mazdaspeed 3 after deciding the car matched his personality. It's true what they say about car's choosing their owners, rather than the other way around. The uniqueness of the platform inspired him to modify his hatchback to the extreme. His final product is one of the meanest Mazdas on the streets of New York.
