    Looky what came home today 81 626 lux coupe

    After many years of scouring the planet, i finally found a rust free 81 Mazda 626 luxury coupe with no rust for sale for $400. Took me 18 hours of driving this weekend to go get it, but it is that clean its worth it! Needs an engine, but the outside and inside are in great shape, even has the original radio, 83,000 miles and its a STICK, WHOO HOO! LOL

    Sunroof, original alloys, everything is as sold in 1981...

    Needs a few small things here and there, now i have to find someone parting one out i guess, anybody on here got parts for one?

    Oh, did i mention WHOO HOO! hehe

    man sweet looking coupe, got one as well. We missed out on the cool mags and sunroofs until later on in the 626 range.

    i love retrieval road trips, its the best kind of road trips, and usually turns out to be "honeymoon" of owning the car, it never seems to break down when on a trailer :lol:

    I love it. And the color is the best part! Gotta love those '80s era wheels.

    Thanks guys for all the great comments on the car. I just bought a wrecked 84 RX7 with a rebuilt Mazda engine in it with 6,000 miles on the rebuild which will be the future drivetrain in the car come springtime. I look forward to making some progress asap. Just bought some NOS mudflaps with the MAZDA logo on them that should look very nice when its back on the road in a few months. I hope my 83 Civic 1500S doesnt get jealous that theres another Jap in the family now...LOL!
    Ill keep this updated as i go along...
