Hi fellow Mazda enthusiasts. This is my first post here. I'd like to share some pix of my Luce Rotary Coupe (R130).

At the time of taking these photos I was playing around with vaarious ride heights hence the "slammed" low rider shots.

Thanks :D I feel very very lucky to get my dreamcar. She is my 11th Mazda after 11 years without any Mazda at all. Perhaps 11 is lucky. :tu:

Original? Not restored?

If so, that's INCREDIBLE.

As far as I'm concerned this is the holy grail of classic Mazdas :) (yes I like them more than the Cosmo)

Thats right, not restored! This car has been in storage for 25 years. I replaced the oil and oil filter and wiper blades. Air cond still works. :D

I did, until I posted it this morning!!!

Shoot me a PM, and I'll have a look through to see if I can scan something for you.
