Spotted in Australia - Dusty, Rusty 1975 Mazda 929 (LA3)
September 02, 2015
I couldn't believe my luck when I saw this weathered Mazda 929 parked at a shopping centre on only the 2nd day of my Australian visit. And, to prove it wasn't a fluke, I saw it again in the same spot days later.
The LA Series Luce was built from 1972 to 1978. This Luce Sedan was built in 1975. It has a 1,970cc inline 4 engine.

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>
