WTB: Early 2000 Mazda vehicle in need of 2.0 drivetrain

Hello All,

New to the forum.

I have a 2003 Mazda Protege5. It has 97,000 miles on it and was a very nice car until someone pulled out in front of my son and wrecked the front end. I was going to repair it but unfortunately, there is substantial rust in the frame area near the rear suspension cradle (seems to be a common problem with these in the rust belt).

It's been such a great car I would like to find another body to put the drivetrain in. Looking for a clean body in need of an engine/drivetrain. It can be another Protege5 or any other body style that the 2.0 will fit in.

Let me know if you have something to consider.
I'm located in Southwest Michigan but willing to travel a little bit for a clean project.

Thank you.
