Black beauty: 1974 Mazda Savanna GT Coupe

September 27, 2017

This could just be the coolest, modded Savanna RX3 I've seen. And, it's fitting that I saw it Autopolis race track in Oita Prefecture, because that was where I saw three RX3's after the longest rotary dry spell that any human should ever have to endure.

The S102/S124 Series RX3 was built from Sep 1971 to 1978. This RX3 coupe was built in 1974. It has a 1,310cc 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>
