I think I did the wrong degree at uni.

Nice collection! :)

Thanks! There's an earth green rolling chassis tucked in there. The RX4 has been acquired since the last photos were taken...but yes there are plenty more Mazda models that haven't made it into the collection. Three L10's wasn't the plan...it just happened that way. One of the L10B's will be for sale sometime in the next 12-18 months.

The display is a combination of two personal collections. They compliment each other perfectly as we don't own any of the same models. Many of the models are JDM specific so we've sourced them from Japan.

Cheers,
Danny

dreams of doing. Look out Jay Leno!!! :lol:

Kudos to you, Sir!!!!!!!!! :tu: :tu: :tu: :tu:

haha Philip...it's nothing more than a dream! Unfortunately I've had some unused space at the workshop and I took advantage of it...albeit somewhat self indulgent as I hadn't ever had all my Mazda's together at one location. I'm actually hoping that I'll need that space as a result of an increase in demand for our products sooner than later.

Thanks mate. I definitely do enjoy taking people (enthusiasts) on private tours from time to time. We've even had international visitors, so if you're ever in Brisbane.... :wink:

Cheers,
Danny

I do believe the collection is also missing a FA3TS coupe.


What's next on the must buy list?

Aside from seeing a pic of a rusting relic on AR, did Mazda ever seriously release these and how many?
If they were released, they would have to be the rarest Mazda of all!

I definitely would remortgage the house for one of these! :twisted:

personally id sell the late model plastic stuff and replace them with earlier stuff like 1800s 1300s capella's rx4s and 5s.. but each to their own.


Dave if only we saw eye to eye we'd have a matching collection ourselves. You complain about the plastic car era, I complain about the bakerlite car era. For me I'd do away with all the cars that contain bakerlite. If only we could find common ground :lol:

If some of you observed closely you'll notice Danny has a steel beam running around most of the perimeter of the warehouse. That can only mean one thing, a mezzanine floor and more cars, why discriminate when you can own the entire Mazda set :lol:

Who seriously owns 3 Cosmos..... my personal early model favourites would have to be a R130 and a "Jetson's" style R360. There's another Mazda nut just like you with a large collection who restored a R130 a couple of years back. I'm assuming it'd be complete by now. It was a nice yellow colour. By the way I like the after market mags on your car they suit it really well.

John, thats a cable tray for power.. And purlins spanning the steel frame - not structural.

In saying that, there looks to be a mezzanine on the other side.. ;)

*builder rant over* :lol:

Who said the collection was complete yet 8)

May need the mezzanine sooner rather than later..!

I am truly lucky to be able to see these cars on a regular basis. It takes a lot of passion for the brand to have such a diverse collection of one marque, and to share them with enthusiasts. Hopefully, one day it may become a full time museum.

Adrian.

Simply unreal!! :shock:
Surely this has got to be the coolest and most diverse Mazda collection in private hands...
The three 110S are obviously stunning, but it's the beautiful R130 that really catches my attention. And for oddity-value it's got to be that funky mid-80's 929 saloon...

But yes, a stylish little 1000 Coupe must surely be the next on the "Add-To-Collection" list.
There was a very clean white one on Aussie ebay about a year ago. I was seriously interested, but sadly the seller decided to sell within Aus rather than let me bring the little gem to Hong Kong. I can't really blame the guy, but still unfortunate for me...

Quite simply stunning...!!! :shock:

Okay, first of all a HUGE thx to Danny and Adrian!! :D
Due to work I found myself sitting on my own in Brisbane on the 30th and 31st. I had PM'ed Danny before hand, and he had kindly invited me by his shop, so I could drool all over that awesome collection of classic Mazdas.
I'm not even going to try to describe what I saw in that warehouse - I couldn't possibly find the words...
Instead I'll treat you to some of the 100's of pics I snapped while spending hours feeling like an 8 year old in a candy shop. :wink:

A well-chosen collection of charming kei-cars:

Image

Image

The pick-up was a true surviver. Never restored, originl paint and if memory serves me right I think the odometer only read 1600 km...!! :shock:

Image

But my weakness for retro wagons meant that it was the little blue Porter that stole my heart amongst the kei-cars.
