brader, the white colour car is not a mazda, but a Toyota. 2000GT. I made a debut in James Bond movie - You Only Live Twice.

This toyota has broke many recorded set by European cars....and open a new chapter for toyota twin cam engine....

Alien,

Wow! I just adore the jade green Coupe KE Sprinter! This car is barely 900kg and packed with twincam T-series engine. It was the pocket rocket at that time....

The white skyline is nice too......the DNA of quad rear lights cluster retained until today.......nice-nice

Some say classic cars are considered as cars when they are 25 years of age. This is being over-generalised. Classic cars can be further categoried as special cars due to its rarity/limited production, special/unique design, legendary performance/technilogy (at that time) or being regarded a cult icon.

I do agree MX5 would potential be a future classic, but the number of these cars in the world is still very big, therefore, the MX5 has yet to reach a true classic car yet....time will tell.

good news abt this car, produce more then million (89-97) and still have 70% of them in good condition (on the road) ....

Legend abt MX5 = no MX5, no S2000, boxter, Z3/4, SLK and bla bla ....
