    My 1974 RX2

    Hi guys, I thought I should put up some pics of my rx2.
    I picked it up in Australia 6 years ago while on honeymoon, and had it shipped home to New Zealand.

    It was a 2 owner car with 74,000kms factory keys, log books, even the orignal bill of purchase.
    It had dealer fitted 13 inch hotwire mags and the factory twin dizzy 12a had been replaced with a 12 bridge port with a 121 5 speed.

    Things have changed a lot in the last few years, I'll post up the rest of those pics soon.

    I drove it around for 12months, and then parked it up and started to strip it down.
