Hello from Alberta, Canada

Post by MXV » Sat Nov 30, 2019 6:55 pm

Hi all,

Happy to have found this forum.

I'm trying to amass a 1:43 collection of all of Mazda's cars that have run at Le Mans, and have all currently available except for three. I'm also into 1:18 as well.

Looking forward to finding out more and continuing to develop my 1:43 collection.

Cheers,

Richard

Welcome Richard. I'm another who has many (80% ?) of the LM Mazda's and like the diversity they add to my collection.

Welcome to the forum

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Welcome fellow 1:43 wankeler.

Have many of Mazda's mighty Rotary product. Have about 75% of the LM cars. Would find getting the rest easier if I didn't have so many other themes :lol: Or if I did have next Saturdays Lotto numbers

Cheers

Hi and welcome. Mazda is always interesting subject, have some road going Mazda models myself and have owned two 323's :) I remember that in my 1982 323, there was the Toyo Kogyo mentioned somewhere, in windows if I remember correctly. The 1990 323 was already made by Mazda Motor Corp. instead of the Toyo Kogyo named company ;)
