Fifty years ago, Mazda Canada started when a Familia Rotary Coupe, known on this side of the Pacific as an R100, went on sale. To celebrate half a century of sales, Mazda Canada released a flashback video covering significant milestones and models.
We hate to be that guy, but the video is not without mistakes. The most glaring one is at 1:20 saying that the SA22 RX-7 debuted in 1974 (it was launched in May 1978). Oops. Oh well, it’s a momentous occasion nevertheless. Our rotor-head JNCers to the north should still have something to celebrate.
UPDATE: Mazda Canada has updated the video to reflect the correct year of the RX-7’s debut in Japan. We really, really hate to be that guy again, but Millenia is still misspelled, meaning it is spelled like the actual word, not the way Mazda spelled it in the 90s.
