    Magnusrx7 > Mazda Rx5 1977

    Ok I think it's time that I make me a thread here!

    This is my second Rx5.
    I got one for free in 2003. In 2005 we got our son and with that the idé of restoring it sort of fell.
    One day I got a call from a swedish TV show who wanted an Rx5 for a show.
    I could not find one in time for them BUT I found this one!

    A 1977 car with only 65000km on the clock.
    After a short testdrive by me and my wife we took it home.

    It had been sitting for almost 10 years but worked really well!
    The swedish spec incl. Powersteering, aircon, automatic.

    I only did some minor rustrepares before I took it for it's inspection.
    It passed with ease!

    Since then we have driven it for just about a 1000km.
    Pictures are comming.

    A guy called me asking if I could help him sell it.
    When I asked about the price he said "If you get it out of here fast I'll give it to you!"

    Then what do you do?

    The complete story is on my site btw!

    Is that a Citroen GS in the second to last photo? Hopefully a Birotor.

    It's a GS, no birotor. But it was in really good condition!
    There are at least two Bi-rotors in Sweden. I talked to the owner a few years ago. One is in fairly good condition. I got a magazine article of it.
    Here is the engine bay .



    The rest of the pictures from that meet are at my site.

    Sorry for that, I have my site on a free server, it seems to be down from time to time.

    Just try it again!
    I guess I will have to start paying.....

    Beautiful car. I know people say these are very American styling, but it kind of looks at home amongst the other European rides. Almost like an old Jag or something. Terrific colour too.
