Does anyone remeber this show stopper 808/RX3 coupe from the mid-late 90's......

Bright Yellow, with all lights and grille etc etc blacked out, 14" Exquisite wheels( B45 copies) painted yellow, black and yellow interior with a huge Kenwood stereo, 12A bridge i think...featured in a few magazines and had fake NSW black and yellow plates "SMIKRX"????????? anyone remember this car???

It was parked outside my hous this afternoon.....looking very ratty and well worn....but still exactly the same, even with NSW plates....wierd

Funny to see it up here and unchanged after about 8 years!!!!!

Its a genuine coupe, and if its parked in Brissie you can be assured that its not the original owner.

The owner is still back in Wagga from my hometown owned the car, as far as I know he has another rx3 and this one is 5 times better then that.

Cant say I ever liked that 3, those wheels were the ugliest I have ever seen on any Rx3. The car went very well, the reliance extend port was a weapom.

what was down there was the most immaculate R100 ever, door trims in plastic, 1969 NRMA badge on grill....absoulte perfect. I asked the old guy 500 times to sell it to me but he loved that thing like a child.

hopefully no one got it and modified it.

Yeh it looks like shit now...was always sweet i thought, and I don't think its the original owner unless he's gone back to age 18/19!!!!



I think we all have the same mag with it on the cover right??? a green escort inside and a blue 808 sedan with a white fronted hornet scoop etc etc...yes?

I like the blacked out tail lights grille & headlight surrounds.

with polished wheels i reckon it'd like a million bux. colour coded wheels, especially when yellow doesnt seem to go too well. hopefully its undegoing a proper rebuild instead of just wasting away.

I'm going to have to give this really old post a BUMP!!

The guy who used to own my rx3 apparently purchased SMIK RX after he sold the one I own now. A guy named Matthew MacXXXXXX*.... used to and maybe still does work as an aircraft repair guy.

Anyone know him??


Matt.

SMICK rx was killa for its time and those magazines were way better than the ones printed today!
No bullcrap ads and all that stuff,just pure cars and it was 80% rotors too.If anyone has the fast fours with the (red or yellow?) daytona on the front could u please pm me.I think its 1994.
