    hey everyone, :wavey:

    im new here and thought i'd show u my car.

    Basics:
    - Originally came out with a 1.3 (hence the name 1300) but that blew up so it was replaced with a 1400 out of a Mazda 323.
    - Bought from the original owner after he failed his re-newal of drivers licence (to old)
    - Have the original reciept of purchase, coupon book for Mazda servicing and owners manual with workshop guide.
    - Picks up chicks.

    No mods as im still in high school but once ive finished it will be getting a 12A Street J-Port. Here are the pics:

    Thoughts??

    Ive been in love with mazdas for ages. When i finally got my licence i wanted a mazda as a first car and this was in my price range. I only paid $2100 (AUS) for it (which around the going price). I bought this car because you dont see many of them around and i wanted to be one away from the crowd.

    I like the sound of a tuff ported rotary and i have to keep it oldskool with a wicked brap coming from it.

    I have been told by a few people to get rid of the blind or otherwise known here a venition. I think it adds to the grandpa look and the white brings out the colour of the car and whitewalls. I plan on adding a sun visor when i can find a place that makes them to complete the look. Once thats done its rotary time!! :x:

    Thanks for all your wicked comments you rock. :bigthumb:

    you think older rotarys are rare in australia?!?! man my FC is one of the only ones ive seen around here, and i mean rotarys in general, but whatever man its an awsome car and i think you should keep the blinds, it helps give it that old 70's and 80's japanese look:bowdown:

    That 1300 is sweet!
    I have a friend with 3 of the early 70's 1800 sedans. I keep trying to convince him to put a rotary in at least one of them but he is always broke and doesnt have an extra rotary angine laying around.

    Nice car, if you're going for the sleeper look, defiantly leave the blind and get a visor, BUT if you're not and going for the coolness look, take the blind off and don't get a visor, they're not that cool :p

    Although I don't like rotary's, that car is schmick and will probably fly once you get a bigger engine in it, although i'm sure you'll have a tough time getting it registered with a rotary (power/weight ratio, you'll most probably need bigger brakes, etc)
