    My -80 Mazda 929 Hardtop

    This is a picture of my ex-929 -79. It had been fitted with older sedan front which is like Rx4 pointy nose but flat at the center. I had the car for many years but then i made something stupid and selled the car.





    For over a year i regretted selling the car so i then went and bought another 929 Hardtop. This one was badly rusted, but somewhat original otherwise. Couple of months later i bought yet another 929 so now i have two cars and lots of parts. Both of the cars are badly rusted and right now i am in the middle of the repairs.

    Picking up the first 929 (1978):



    The second one (1980):



    Now i am working on the -80 929. I have new rear wings and also older sedan front like in my ex-929. I dont like the facelift "flat nose" front

    left rear wing:



    The car is going to be orginal with 1.8 piston motor except 14 inch steel rims and the front.

    Rims:



    I hope to see the car painted and running next summer. Hope you like the pictures!

    Excellent work so far, good to see you're staying with the piston engine. I'm looking to add one of those coupes shorty to the collection.

    Sweet looking coupe, looks unusual with the 929 bull nose.
    This front end originally came out in the 929 until 1975/76 and was on the 1973 RX-4 sedan.

    I have done the pointy nose conversion on my 1977 Hardtop, similar to your 929, viewtopic.php?t=1132
    But after seeing this on the weekend, I kind of thought that I should have kept mine the way it was.

    Thanks again! You are one reason that my RX4 highly probably will hit the road again this summer!
