awesome pics Stu,

Gotta love the old days of the Mazda rotary world where bridgeports ruled, standard paint colours were cool and mag wheels were all under 14 inches! Ahh the good old days! Thanks for sharing.

Back then too mate, they would have all been genuine Rx's not converted piston models too!

Wow. An RX-3 with a turbo motor would have been the odd one out back then as opposed to now!

I saw an immaculate poo brown flat front 929 sedan today.
