What the heck is going on with the oversized tires?

the headlights are so... orb-like.

i used this and the other mazda to illustrate to my wife the 1973 bumper laws that ruined all cars.

No rust what so ever. All moss and dirt. Oregon FTW!

I never thought I'd see such a surprising pair of Japanese nostalgics that I'd never heard of.

I guess I've heard various 70s RX models mentioned, but never either of these. I would drive the heck out of either, as they sit, regardless of what engine they have. but a 13B would decimate!

"These 2 Jap cars"
Uh, no.

tony said...

it gives me no pleasure to report that both cars are gone, as well as the white storage container visible in the background.

i think the folks moved away; i can only hope that they paid to have the cars trailered to a new home and didn't just donate them to the scrap yard.

First let me say that I just found this website and I love it. I am a Japanese classic car lover and you have some nice ones on this site like this couple of Mazda's. Mazda R100's are very hard to find and this one is in very good condition. There are a few parts missing like the original door mirror, and the badges, but those items can be found, but the fact that they cut the wheelwells to accomodate bigger tires somewhat messed this car up. An original
R100 will bring in some good money. Here is a link to an original R100 and other R100s. The red one with the white wall is mine and I have been offered quite a few dollars for it.

the r100's were almost sold exclusively on the west coast. if you wanted to find one, Oregon and Washington would be the best place to look. finding an intact, unmolested r100 is a job for Indiana Jones. it's the holy grail of rotary Mazda cars.
