    Something about this vid seems fake...
    Maybe its the non factory hubcaps on such a new car?
    Maybe its the way the couple are acting, very put on?
    Maybe its because they back out, only to pull up out the front?
    Maybe its the large rego label? (nsw had small square ones)
    Maybe its the rather high quality video for the mid 70s?
    Maybe because its you first post and you have another profile on here?
    Maybe because it has had old music put onto it to make it seem authentic?
    The houses are all old though, and so are the cars in the background which goes against everything ive said, but it could still be a good set up to get Mazda's freaks creaming in their pants...

    Maybe you could back-up this vid by some pictures of the car in another area?

    Either way, i don't care, im just sceptical of everything by nature.

    Cool Vid.

    I reckon its real. My family had a heap of super 8 film converted to dvd not that long ago. There were a few of my uncles doing the exact same thing on camera with their cars, with the exact same poses and walking towards the camera. Seemed to be the thing to do. None of the cars were anything cool like an RX-2 bit all the same.

    It would be awesome if that Rx-2 has survived, but that could be a tough ask.

    Looks legit too me, theres no way that boat on the lawn would still be around now so has to be old school. And pause it on the cars going past in the back ground there all old clangers. Cool vid

    Its an SA rego, means the label is OK
    A fiat 124 sports in the BG would have rusted to pieces by now, for sure
    Is that a Lotus Cortina out the front? Rare as & you wouldnt just have it sitting there I wouldnt imaging
    Maybe option hubcaps?
