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.
