Interested in this rare, unloved Mazda. The price is cheap enough, but I don't want to drive all the way down to find something obvious that would keep me from buying it. 

 

Boxy Mazda luxobarge

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

No, Woody that was the Millenia. Very cool car in its own right. This is the larger chassis that pre-dated the Millenia. The Millenia was FWD this is RWD.Bump. Anyone local?

We’re on a family trip, staying in the Newark area tonight. If we have some down time and I can get away I might be able to take a look at it.

She's a beaut!  

 

The ad also has this link to this '91 commercial.

In that video, at the 19 sec area there is a car briefly shown (real brief) that I can not figure out.  What is it? Maybe Volvo Amazon?

The later 929s had oscillating center a/c vents. I always thought that was cool.

Yes, the in laws and grandparents would love it cheeky  If we’re not doing anything after dinner I might be able to get away while everyone else is hanging out at the hotel.

Take the whole fam. What is more GRM than “I’m here with eight people to look at your car but it’s not really for any of us.”

Q: So, then who is it for?

A: A guy I've never really met.  

 

But, I almost did this myself for Mazdax605 while I was visiting Virginia until I realized though the car in question was in Virginia too, it was 4 hours away.
