Happy 626 Day from JNC!

Many forget that the original Mazda 626 came in rear-wheel-drive and pillarless hardtop coupe form. If you can find them, they are typically pretty well preserved and fairly affordable. Perhaps you can adopt one today, this happy 626 Day!

    Always liked the style of the first 626. The only thing it needed to attain epic status was an injected 13B.

    Firstly, thank you for this excellent site!

    Secondly, thank you for reminding us of the timeless styling of the original Mazda 626. It can be easy to forget today how advanced this styling was when this model was released, and in my opinion it retains a classic, yet modern, elegance with not a line out of place. The simple yet comfortable interior sums up the era wonderfully, bringing back memories of hard yet functional plastic combined with velour softness. It shouldn’t work, but it did.

    There was the Roadpacer that looked like a Chevrolet Caprice that had the 13B.

    I had a blue four door. It was a pretty good car for its day and a big upgrade from my previous car, a GLC.

    I own a 83 626 GC, the model that followed.
    Love it lots, I use it everyday!
    Very underestimated car

    Happy 626 day! When I was really young, my uncle had a white 4-door. He drove the hell out of it, sold it to a beginning driver for $300; and drove the hell out of it. Great cars. Mazdas (especially the older and non-rotary powered ones) are underappreciated. I would love to buy another Mazda, had a 2010 Mazda 5 (with a 5-speed!); deeply regret getting rid of it.
