Since the point of this thread is to disseminate rare archival material, are you willing to scan these valuable pages into a pdf that we can all download?

I apologize that I wasn't able to scan this magazine, it is over 300 or so pages thick so I took pictures of all of it. This was a beast to get to America. Enjoy.

This is a 23 year old magazine. Don't waste your time calling.


Darn I was all set to call them…

While sifting through my Mazda collection, I located some old school RX7 Club media. A performance newsletter and Rotary Rocket magazine. Along with those is a hardcover of the FC birth and historical rotary vehicles from Mazda. I also vaguely remembered when I got my FB from the original purchaser, she had a large envelope along with it. Inside is the purchase agreement, every registration from day 1 (7-28-1985) through 2004 minus 1987. All original documentation that came with the car. All new, unopened and have been in the actual stock envelope from the dealer, you can see the stock number and tender blue color written on it.

About 7 years ago I put together a collection of road tests, buyers guides, sales brochures, technical guides, engine, handling and bodywork mods going back over the last 31 years into one PDF or E-book running to 344 pages long...






I didn't do it for profit, just for myself and other 1st gen enthusiasts to enjoy and you can download it for free here from my Google drive

https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B8j...thkey=CMSdiIEI

It's due an update so if anyone has any scans they'd like to contribute, please pm me for my email address and I'll add them in.

Ian
