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.
