Again, another car that i haven't seen this clean for a loong time.
Im talking the HB Mazda 929 - Mazda's 80's luxury barge spectacular. available in coupe and sedan, both powered in Australia by a simple SOHC 4cyl.
We missed out.
..Japan got theirs in the proper Cosmo, Turboed rotary form!
Boo on Mazda, as high-end sedan's need a somewhat special drivetrain. Regardless, they sure managed to sell them anyway!
I occasionally see these (929's) at the wreckers, and still some about on the street.
Love the look of this particular car anyway. very late days for guard-mounted 'fender'-mirrors, and not sure whether the privacy tint is original. The phone dial wheels rock my world.
Not sure whats going on with the black trim around the car, as its the only thing holding the car back from being a real minter. its just a little sad and blotchy.
I'd personally fix that by getting the bumper strips redone in a gloss black. would tie it in nicely with the black tail-light treatment.
loving the big button-pod unit around the cluster, and the vent placed low in-front of the window controls.
somewhat odd seeing the lack of digital dash (would have expected, really); and that headunit is absolutely killing the centre console for me. shame, as it would have had a pretty cool stock unit. easy fix though!
and here is the part that badge on the boot shouts so loudly about:
I spy some adjustable suspension/shocks there. also interesting how far the radiator is spaced back to meet the little rotary.
overall just a cool old cruiser.
