    My mazdas (Greece)

    Here are some pics of my cars, restored or under restoration.




    1967(?) mazda 1000 deluxe. Restoration completed.





    1973 3 mazda RX3 sedan (deluxe). 2 of them are going to be restored. One has the original (matching number) 10A. Collecting parts.














    1971 mazda RX2 coupe. Brand new 12A twin dizzy. Restoration completed.






    1967 mazda T600. Parts collection almost completed





    1968 mazda 1500 deluxe. Late A6 car. Restoration almost completed






    1973 RX4 hardtop. A difficult desicion. I always wanted a pre 10/1975 car, instead of the realtively common in Greece 1975 on cars. Unfortunately, as no more than 20-30 pre 10/1975 hardtops were sold locally, my chances were not that big to find a descent car. I initially bought a greek market car, but as the situation of the car was terrible and I had to spend a lot of money for an uncertain result this beauty remained as a donor and parts car:




    On the contrary of my "principles" I bought a Cyprus market RHD one.
    Well, these are the only two hartops spotted the last 6 years, in any case.
    The car is under restoration.



    Last week



    1983 mazda RX7. As bought.
    99% stock original.
    At a recent 1300 km trip.





    1981 mazda RX9 (LA42S [12A]). 100% stock original, matching number.
    When it was bought. Details have been fixed since the photo





    mazda T600 has been presented here, 1000 and RX2 at "ausrotary".
    A detailed information of what is an RX-9 (1979-1981) can be found at ausrotary also.

    Thanks. Hopefully by January the RX4 will be ready besides some details.
    Madaz you probably know that I was helped a lot by some ausrotary guys to the restoration of this car as it is a RHD car, i.g. the y scanned for me the RHD parts book etc.
    -Yes I know the guy very well. he used to run the Cosmo at the regularity rallies, now he runs with a 79-80 RX7. Its a L10A car. Its the grey car you can see at the Cosmo meeting in Germany.
    -I got some pictures of the green RX4. But the interior was so messy that you cannot see a lot of the car;s features. I ll try to post some pictures of RX4s in Greece in general as it seems that most face lift (10/1975 on) LHD 12A cars were sold here.

    Mazda most likely was the first japanese make that appeared to Greece. So we got R360, 600 (Carol), k360, early D1500 and B1500 (the one that is posted in a topic from AU at this forum). From all those models the last survivor was an early (1963-1964) D1500, seen four years ago,. When, after some months, I returned in order to negotiate the sale, it was gone to scrap.

    R360s and Carols, I am jealous. If there are any left, that is.
    I'd love to buy an early Familia from Greece, that would be some roadtrip!

    From what I know, Greece had some horrible scrap-schemes in the last years, but at my last visit, I still saw a huge amount of OJCs still on the road, compared to northern parts of Europe were OJCs are almost extinct.
