WATCH: Mazda's own unrestored survivor RX-3

Guido and Higgo speak on one of the Japanese collectible's hottest topics, the RX-3

Years ago, no one could have imagined how collectible the little Mazda RX-3 would become.

They were consumer goods, left at the tip without a second thought once many original owners had their use. Those that did end up on the secondhand market were almost all modified in some way thanks to decades as cheap performance weapons. Take intofurther account, the cars that ended up tress, or simply rusted away as all 1970s cars did - history has shown that the humble little rotary is one serious piece of rare metal; and is now one of the hottest properties in Japanese collectibles.

Watch the video above as Guido and Higgins talk shop about the pioneering little rotary. This car stars as one of our cover features, and presents as a unicorn find. Unrestored and a complete survivor, we found it at Mazda Australia!
