Rotative engine, and a very special design. 

What do you see, here? Italian Design, or something borrowed to the Corvettes? 

I must admit I quite love it.

That's remarkable, indeed.

Love the Cosmo! Mazda has always been a fantastic innovative company. IMHO the BMW of Japan as they've always put a lot of emphasis on driving dynamics. I've lusted after one since

The rotaries are strong and fast but quite troublesome. I spent half hour last night trying to help a buddy resolve some issues on his RX-7. I think he has had at least 10 Mazda rotaries - I’ve just had one, very briefly. I do like the look of the Cosmo C...

components in the cooling system in top shape (water pump, hoses, everything). One overheating episode will usually warp the "barrel" ending the life of that engine. The four rotor Mazda 787B that won Le Mans ('91) was a mind blowing race car! Little ole ...

It was lots of things but I never thought of it as charming I took my father-in-law for a ride, and he rolled out onto the driveway moaning "He's trying to kill me, I've never been so terrified!" My fleet in 1990. The rusty green van was my neighbor's veh...  

I think I had one of those - I can't remember
