18 December 1992 is mine... Thought FDs were post September 1992 - didn\'t realise there was a crossover as the FC is also available in 92!! Guess it\'s the usual selling off old stock after the new model etc...

Well it was owned by Mazda for their promotion of the FD so I guess it wouldn\'t have been for sale.

It must be one of the UK\'s oldest if you read the attached
