Default Rotary Mazda and owner wanted for magazine feature

Hello,

I work for Mazda's Zoom-Zoom magazine, which goes out to 1.5 million owners worldwide.

For the next issue of the magazine I'm looking for someone who owns an early 70s rotary-engined Mazda (especially an RX-2, RX-3, RX-4 or RX-5) to appear in our regular 'My Mazda' feature. Ideally you'd be based on either the east or west coast of the US.

The process usually comprises of a half hour chat on the phone with me about you and your car, followed by an hour or so with a photographer who'll come to you to take some lovely portraits of you with your pride and joy.

If you happen to own such a car and would like to appear in the magazine, please contact me at…

luke.ponsford@redwoodlondon.com

Many thanks and I'll look forward to hearing from you.

Luke

Someone should do this. I had a fantastic experience last year and some great times once the magazine came out.

That's what I figured, so I sent him an email yesterday. Who knows, maybe they'll pick an FC this time

I hate to be the one to break this to you Pete, but FCs aren't early 70's.

1988 N/A SE model FC, dead stock and less than 85k on the clock. This one actually runs, so I don't fuck with it.

No shit, but the gamble paid off - they are working the process to set up a local photo shoot of my FC & phone interview as we speak

Nice reasonably unmolested FCs are getting a lot harder to find nowadays. Their readers should definitely be interested.

Would this low mileage FC Turbo II work?

Just look around on different sites and when I see a good one I don't hesitate in getting it. These are going up in value, especially the turbo s5s.
