    Brisbane Mazda 1500SS New Pictures of The Beast

    Check out the beast below.

    I was wondering if anyone could help. My son got a Mazda 1500SS in excellent condition two years ago that had been idle for more than 10 years in an old guys garage. I have rebuilt the brakes, carby, ball joints, steering and new rubber. She goes but very, very smokey, under powered and the plugs foul after an hour or so. Looks like she needs a rebuild. I'm in Brisbane and wondered if anyone know's some Mazda lover who would be interested in rebuilding the engine without costing a fortune. It's my 15 year old son's first car, about to get his L's soon, so he cant be spending a fortune.

    Is there someone you would recommend?

    Thanks, James.

    Hi James, check your inbox! We might be able to get together and I can have a look just to make sure there's not a tuning fault. I've seen a lot of those twin carby's set up horribly wrong in the past! :tu:

    Hi James
    I think you should join our club as well. We're based in brissy and there is a number of these in the club. Nice original car too, nice start for the young bloke.
    Cheers

    Thanks Marek,

    I have seen the seven of clubs website before and didn't think the club was that active as there are old events and results listed. It also seemed to be about rotary's and old Mazda's might be out of place, but there is no doubt B1500boy Tim is into the old stuff. Will the show in June be about rotary's or will it be all forms of Mazda?

    James.

    the show is an "All Japanese Day" which as the title suggests cater for all forms of Japanese automotive awesomeness.
