Hi all,


I found this old issue (July 1972!) of CarGraphic at work...

Image

After flipping through it I felt like there were a couple pages I had to scan for you all...
First some coverage of the 1972 Japan Grand Prix held at Fuji Speedway and its supporting races...
Hakosuka, RX3, Cherry, they are all there...

Image

But then in the back, I came across this jewel of used car ads.
Considering several of us have 70, 71, and 72 hakosukas it would be pretty amazing (and a 1 in a million chance) if the used cars pictured here were one of ours... one can always dream right?

Image

The comparisons are pretty interesting:
_ A 67 Camaro SS is slightly more than a 2DR GT-R
_ A 68 1300S Mini Cooper is slightly less than a 4DR GT-R

Have fun...

Thanks for the post!

I've always wanted to know the dark history of my car...I wonder if I will ever find out one day

See the happy face / sad face on the headlight cover on last page of race coverage? I'm sure there's a story there too

Would be awesome to find out the history! Many of us wonder the same about our own cars.

Thanks for sharing the mag, pretty cool to find laying around your work Eric. :tu:
