10 full pages.

I bought this Mazda R100 brochure at the local swap meet yesterday from a lady who’d bought one new back in the day. Cost me $5

I scanned it in for everyone's viewing pleasure. Below is the link and you can click on each page for a larger version

I love the 1970's Japanese sports car interiors.

Thanks!

My dad has boxes and boxes of car brochures from the 60's through the 90's. Digging through, I found a very funky one for the original Cosmo done by Tadanori Yokoo. I scanned it about 15 years ago. If you've seen pictures of Jay Leno's garage, he has a blowup of one of the pages behind his Cosmo's parking space.

No problem. Just to balance life out a bit I bought a Hyundai Pony brochure too

Yeah, thanks for sharing, I love stuff like this.

The brochure boasts 16.4s in the 1/4 mile...impressive! (probably exaggerated?)

I love that Cosmo poster, Keith. I wonder how it'd look blown up with this - http://www.blockposters.com/

I saw my first R100 over the Memorial Day weekend 1971. I was on a road trip with a friend and we were a few miles outside of San Antonio. I can't remember seeing another one after that. Of all the rotary Mazdas, that must have been the shortest-lived.

About a year after that sighting, I visited the local (jacksonville, Fl.) Mazda dealer and was "allowed" to take a test ride...apparently, no one under the age of 30 got a supervised or un-supervised test drive. 2 years after that, I had a RX-2 as a rental car. Nice cars, in serious need (but weren't they all?) of a better looking car to wrap it with.

Yeah I was reading an old hot rod mag and it had the 2.3 turbo 1979 mustang that ran an impressive 15.6 :)
