Hiroshima Trip - Landmark Mazda Savana GT, RX-3 (Zenki)

January 01, 2013

This car is the 5,000,000th Mazda to have been produced, and I'd like to point out that it hasn't been babied at all. There are plenty on km's on the clock and based on the info I was able to gather, it has undergone a restoration to bring it up to the sparkling standard you see here.

The S102/S124 Series RX3 was built from Sep 1971 to 1978. This RX3 Coupe was built in 1972. 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>
