  1. Preserved 1979 626 on BoT!

    According to BoT, this car belongs to a big collection of delivery mileage only Mazdas from the 80s for sale in Poland. And said person on BoT left a link: http://www.stradale-classics.pl/klasyki/sprzedaz-samochodow-klasycznych/mazda/ Eight... EIGHT mid-80s 323's looking in perfect condition. And, even better, a mid-80's 626 in perfect nick. And, lastly, most awesomely, TWO MORE 1979 626's, again in perfect condition! One of them's even my car's colour!!! Who kept this stuff??? So let us once again sit from afar and drool at these wonder machines... Somebody ought to get a hold of the Mazda Museum in Hiroshima.

    Yeah, it is waaaaay overpriced, even if it's basically perfect. Though maybe because it's got to be extremely rare in Poland, the price is justified.

    I'll just leave this here for y'all to drool at: https://bringatrailer.com/2017/10/01/710-miles-from-new-preserved-1979-mazda-626-5-speed/ It's in Poland, though. Darn. (And I'm not dead!!! XD )
  4. Post your 626 still on the road!!!!

    Let's see... wow, I've got a lot of stuff I haven't shown. First, last October: Earlier this year, I tried to go up the same road, but it was closed for snow still: I might spend too much time with my car...
  5. 79 CB2 Sedan original.

    Yeah, the 13 inch tyre struggle is real. I had to settle for 175/70's because they were made by a halfway (two-thirds way?) decent manufacturer. My car rode sooooo much better than on the spit & tar that was on before. Next on my to-do list is the shocks, so thanks for this invaluable bit of information! My '80 is of the post CB2MS543000 variety.
  6. JDM 1982 Mazda Capella video

    Great resource, that. Documentation is so painfully hard to find, even in virtual form. XD Strange that they only put a Capella badge on the fender on the left. Wow, a wood grain package. Seems the Japanese get all the cool options. I suppose if I really wanted to, I could whittle together some real wood trim bits... but on second thought, maybe not. XP
  7. JDM 1982 Mazda Capella video

    Ever wondered what the JDM second generation Mazda Capella (or first gen Mazda 626 for the rest of us) looked like? Well, check this video, it's a great visual reference: I wonder how much of it is original? (there's a DOHC badge on the back... That's incredible if the JDM Capella really came with a DOHC engine!) Those minilite-style wheels certainly aren't factory, but damnit, I want those on mine!! It'll go great with the bronze paint.
  8. Post Up Pictures Of Your 626

    A very Happy Christmas to all... This is the last time I let my car handle the Christmas cards.
  9. Post Up Pictures Of Your 626

    It's a pity there aren't more vintage Japanese car shows in my country... (maybe I should look harder) You've got yourself a fine fleet of Capellas, sir.
  10. C Pillar "Vent" Trim Piece

    Bizarrely, I couldn't find anything like that, either online or off (though I could've looked harder offline... heheh). You have my heartiest thanks for all this. ^_^
  11. C Pillar "Vent" Trim Piece

    Extraordinary patience is a skill of mine! XD Boasting aside, I've been pretty occupied with a vast bunch of stuff... Yes, the clip on the left is what I need... but the plastic screw thing that I needed was this one: Which goes where the red arrow is pointing: Sorry about all the confusion...
  12. C Pillar "Vent" Trim Piece

    Did you happen to find one? Thanks, DR
  13. 79 CB2 Sedan original.

    Wow, what a sweet addition to your collective you've got there. But has it assimilated the other cars yet? I'm surprised that even those plastic map pockets (made of the brittlest plastic ever formulated in the 1970s) aren't cracked... it's as if a foot has never accidentally bumped into them multiple times in the middle of the night. *Ahem* Some of those features are very interesting... My car's only got two lap belts for the outside passengers in the back and I don't have a battery holder like that (the battery's mounted differently). I think AM/FM radio was standard in the US, as was A/C... and I think auto-choke as well. I don't have a tach, though... whomever bought mine in 1980 didn't want to spring for that... I like that croupier hat visor, very stylish... I am so jealous of that digital clock... heheheh... How's the automatic on 7/9? I imagine it wouldn't like speeds over 100KPH but does it adapt?
  14. C Pillar "Vent" Trim Piece

    Excellent! ^_^ Yeah, I've got the trim piece and all associated bits (which I took off before they flew away on the freeway) except for the nutsert... Do you have one of these by chance? A "gutter-ette" which links the gutter to the gutter-bit of the trim piece. I have the one for the right side (as you see above) but the left side one is missing.
  15. C Pillar "Vent" Trim Piece

    Which piece are you talking about? If it's the plastic nut thing (whatchamacallit) then I think it'll work on the right side (it's just a holder for the screw, which I've got: I'd be shocked if it didn't work...). Did you mean the gutter-ette piece?
