RX3 coupe at Simply Japanese, Beaulieu
« on: July 30, 2017, 06:47:22 PM »
I had every intention of taking a lot of pics but got slightly distracted   :oops:   I had just papped a Mitsubishi Sapporo and then went all peculiar having been confronted by this   :love4:


Just sitting under a tree, minding it's own business and being largely ignored!




Which was good for me










Dish baby   :)   



Willwood anchors for the front




Old Skool headlamp mods   8-)


Started life with a 10a heart


Now has 12a turbo and gearbox from a HB Cosmo












Teleported over to our shared stand and an appreciative audience




The owner has a really interesting background, having worked at Elford Engineering, served a Mazda apprenticeship and worked alongside a certain Tim White.

Great to see Chris out at another show with his jaw dropping RX-3
All the best Clive

I didn't manage to speak to Chris at Castle Combe when he showed his RX-3, so really pleased to be able to spend some time chatting to him at Beaulieu on Sunday. His car is simply stunning and I was glad to be able to broker a deal with the  Beaulieu safety staff for him to relocate to a better position on the RX-8 OC stand where his car attracted more passing traffic. His car seemed to have people around it for the rest of the day, rightly so!

Worthy of a few more pics!






Surprised, and pleased, to see Linas turn up from the IOW with his FD. Managed to get him onto the RX-8 OC stand too, so we had an RX-3, 1st and 3rd Gen RX-7's and RX-8's to display to the crowds.



Twas a great day out, weather fine in company of a fine crowd of Mazda Rotary enthusiasts  :13:
