.....well it all began in 1991 when my father denied me the opportunity to purchase a 1974 Mazda RX-3 coupe as my first car (during my first year of an engineering degree - would have made a great daily for a uni-student). Geez I wish I had that car now! ....but then again, I may not have travelled the path that I have.
So what would be the next best thing to owning a Mazda rotary powered car? A Mazda piston powered car of course! :mrgreen: A friend of my fathers had a wholesale car yard and had just taken delivery of a one owner 1982 Mazda 626 Super Deluxe with a meagre 110,000km on the clock. Being a super deluxe it was a five speed and had air-conditioning. $4,200 later and she was mine!
All was well for a couple of years of to and from uni until the valve stem seals stopped doing what they should be, and the MA 2 litre started to have a drinking problem of the oil kind. :lol: So a freshen-up was in order and this is where the journey began.
Here's some photos of her from 1992...
I'll continue to document its history as I find time over the next few weeks.....there's another 18 years of mods to go!!! :mrgreen:
