It's a very interesting photo that one, with both RHD and LHD cars pictured together, so clearly different export market specs, not Series 1 and 2.

Looking at what we can see you'd have to think 1972, with RHD square headlight models (similar to Aus spec with vented bonnet) and LHD twin headlight models with humped bonnet (which match 1972 USA spec, they had twin round lights from the beginning because of their design rules). That would make all Capella's pictured Series 1, be they square or twin round headlight, vented or humped bonnet, gee that well and truly screws it all up hey :moon:

A high res version would be golden as yep that Capella left of pic has a different style badge again on the rear 1/4.


So Dazz you have me confused between the RX2 series 1,2 & 3, was the S1 a 4 door and the S2 a coupe with humps on the bonnet and the S3 was a left hand drive but also the series 4 had a piston engine in the rear but never got released????

Can you please clarify.

Regards Chris :? :? :? :? :? :?

I first came across this Postcard for sale in the Oak restaurant at Freemans waterhole around 20 years ago.
I happen to come across this pic of it again recently.

Not sure why i didn't buy the post cards at the time.

That is a Mazda 1000 or 800 in the carpark next to the Dodge?

It's Saigon, 1968.

Driver Mike Limbrick....Co Driver Brian Connell. Pinicle Hill Road, Drury. Auckland.
This photo was taken by Rex Rattenbury who now resides in Perth and who's son Carl Rallies a Mk 1 Escort and has a Mazda RX3 Coupe in bits..
I can't believe just how many people wrecked their cars on this corner.......I found it a shit load easier than most and I was 9th quickest down there in my RX3 Coupe.
DAZZ I will see what I have in the way of hi res pix of my old RX2..........Where abouts in Australia are you?
