Things That Make You Go Hmmm

1973 Mazda RX-3

We’ll admit, some of us at Car Of The Day have longer memories than others, but this RX-3 reminded us of a classic Mazda commercial:

The piston engine does indeed go boing boing boing, while the Mazda goes hmmmmm. Unless you’re camping at an amateur road racing event, which means the Mazda rotary invariably goes BRAP BRAP BRAP at 5:47 am at 120 decibels three feet from your tent. But we digress…

So few RX-3s have survived the ravages of time, rust, and motorsports that this is a remarkable find. The bright green is unmistakably ’70s. This has been beautifully preserved..we love it.

It’s on eBay in Florida with reserve not yet met.
