Rotary Pimp: 1976 Mazda Cosmo RX-5

Mazda has a tendency to use the RX prefix in its rotary powered  cars, so when the replacement to the limited edition (and extremely collectible) first generation Mazda Cosmo was introduced in 1972, it was called the RX-5 for the US market. It was Mazda’s entry into the personal luxury coupe market, and slightly missed the target for what buyers were expecting.  The result were poor sales when new and now you hardly ever see one on the road, but the few that have survived will make for an interesting conversation piece with anyone you might meet at a gas station or Japanese auto repair shop. Find this 1976 Mazda Cosmo RX-5 offered for $3900 in Dublin, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
