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.

The Series was built from Dec to Dec . This Familia coupe was built in 1973. It has a 982cc rotary engine.
