Hi everyone! This is my little Mazda van I'm toying with at the moment. Can't wait to see if there's anymore here on JNC. Looking forward to chatting with you all :D

Such a cool little van! 8)
I honestly don't remember last time I saw one of these. They all lived the harsh life of a workhorse, resulting in not many surviving. It's heartwarming to see one as nice as yours - it really does look amazingly well preserved!
Is there any history with it to explain the condition? It must be fairly low ownership and / or mileage...
What are your plans for her?

Cheers mate :D. It has 300,000 kilometres on it an still has the original engine.. I got the car off a 76 year old gentleman who was the second owner. He brought it as a cheap car to get around in while he was waiting on delivery of his new car.

Once his new car arrived he decided he didn't want to part with it because it was so reliable and practical. So he an his wife drove it every so often to the shops etc. then a few months back it was time for him to let it go.

So far I've replaced all the steering an suspension components an lowered it slightly, then I brought the wheels and a new exhaust system. No major plans at the moment really except tidying up small things an maybe adding a rear window Venetian for that old school look.

Thanks mate! Will put up a few more pics today. Not much has really changed except for an interior tidy up. I ordered a rear venetian a few days ago an that should be here in a few days.
