It's been restored and now it's on display at the Tokyo Motor Show. And it's gorgeous. I love the huge "Powered By Rotary" on the back. Check out more images here.

I love the back of that car!! I see very small traces of the Dome in it, but I think overall this is a much more pleasing looking car!

Whats the old Honda behind it in the first picture?

Oops, that should be "Rotary", not "Mazda." Follow the link and there are many more hi-res images, including a close-up of the back of the car. You can see the spare tire is back there, too.

Just replied to it. Actually, I love the blog posts. You often link to entries I haven't yet read, so it's all good. (On a side note, I did find the Bellett GT-R song post you mentioned to me a while ago. Loved it. Crazy Ken Band rocks.)

Looks like it should say "Powered by Jiggawattzzz!!" on the back, 1.21 to be exact.

The 10a in the RX-500 sounds like an old fishing boat motor - and smoky as :lol:

I wonder if the Cossie is one of the original race cars???? Does not sound like a pp..?
