Masked Rider V3: 1978 Mazda Savanna GT RX-3 (アゴバンナV3)

June 23, 2018

The Stancenation Japan event in Nagasaki was where I first saw this Japanese-TV hero inspired Kaido racing RX-3. It took just one month to build this widebodied brap machine, and the results are speak for themselves.

The S102/S124 Series RX3 was built from Sep 1971 to 1978. This RX3 coupe was built in 1978. It has a 1,146cc 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>
