Welcome aboard fellow Mazda nut! Awesome selection of Rx-7's there, very nice. Love the jet black one in the middle.

Thanks!
The Black is a 1980 m.y. Italian, with 13B (bought new from a boat shop :shock: ) holley 650, KYB white ammo and others few things.
The restyling model is 100% original, and the USA model in first place had just a new exaust and a noknow carb :D

Welcome to JNC!

Were these common in Italy? Sold new or imported?

Thanks :D
The Mazda's, like most Japanese car, before the 1995/2000, were imported trow a parallel (big) importer, because Mazda, Nissan, Mitsubishi haven't a local office.
In Italy was Sidauto (with base in Turin) to import the Mazda and Saab: the first gen were about 75 (with few, less than 3 restyling), FC I don't know, III generation about 90.
For my three car:
- the USA model came from UK: I bought it in Essex in 11/2007, was of an English man that work in USA and take it with him when came back home
- the Black model is Italian (but not sure);
- the restyling seems to be Italian, but not so sure. Otherwise, I think it's the only in Italy now.
Sometimes some first gen appear in Autoscout or similar, all 79/80 m.y. I know that there's also some Rx-2, but in the past 3/4year I saw just 2of this and a 818 :)

Ps: sorry for my terrible English :oops:

Yes, Italy and also some other Euro country were very limited in the import ( I think Greece also) :)
