holy crap, this is a Mazda lovers holy grail. I have only ever seen ones that have been restored, never one that is in dirty, dd condition. I say I like it better this way. wonder how many miles that rotary has on it and how many rotor tip seals he's gone through. love the slot mags they fit the truck nicely.

Wow! Love these trucks. Very unique face. Cool slot mags and tailights. That badge is awesome! Love the seventies M in the rotary shape. Great find.

Everything about the looks of this truck is awesome. The grille, the color, the wheels, the adorable little taillights, the fender flares... not even to mention its got a rotary. I want one of these with a passion now.

bah, still waiting to witness my first one. well done.

these would seem to have everything going for them, from their irresistible double-grill quad-round face, to their wider-than-the-flared-fender stance, plus all the awesome performance and quirkiness of that wankel engine -- but i kind of feel like it's all poison bait for what is an inevitable money pit rusting away in my driveway.

the fact that this one is in such good shape, while showing this much patina, not to mention the cargo box in the bed, is truly awe-inspiring.

nice job getting that profile shot.

a best-of-2012.

Its a great little truck. Its funny how the Germans made the engine and the Japenese used it.

really missing something without the "ROTARY POWER" tailgate. there were actually TWO of these pulling daily driver in my hometown growing up, a mustard yellow one and a blue one like this. both in original condition and loved by their owners who drove them every day.

the engine looks like it's been pulled at least once, but i can tell you from experience that these things will run forever if treated well.

That is one awesome little truck. I'd happily drive it as is!
