G'day everyone. My name is Daniel and I make videos of the old and interesting cars I find in Japan and Australia.

Unicorn JDM: 1973 Mazda Familia Rotary Coupe GS / R100

January 13, 2018

At the 49th Rotary Festival (in Kyushu) I got to see just my 2nd Familia Rotary Coupe up close. The first one I'd seen at Mazda Headquarters in Hiroshima in 2012.

This Familia coupe was built in 1973. It has a 982cc rotary engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
