Survivor! 1980 Mazda Cosmo L Limited (13b/CD23C)

May 06, 2023

Incredible one-owner, rotary-powered, 2nd-generation, high-spec Mazda Cosmo in gorgeous condition and original paint (Radiant Copper Metallic). Spotted it in an auction yard here in Japan, and can honestly say that I've not seen one like it before or since.

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>
