What should I look for

Greetings: I am a member of the Ford Courier Collector Forum. The reason I am posting here is that this summer I will be visiting a boneyard that I was in last fall. While there, I saw a truck I thought was a Ford Courier; up close, it turned out to be a Mazda, which at the time didn't interest me. However, I couldn"t get the hood opened, but the interior didn"t look like my truck. Now that I have been surfing the Internet, I think it might be a rotary. I am taking my digital camera when I return, if it is a rotary, what pictures should I take???? The boneyard is an hour and one half from me, and has a number of Couriers, which is why I am returning this summer.

Greetings, Lenny!

Kind of you to consider the possible REPU, (and us)! Since the cost of shipping large parts tends to be prohibitive, your location would be of some interest... If indeed it is a REPU, and in 'good enough' overall shape to be desirable, the real question is: Is there *any* way to save it, whole, from the boneyard? If not, well... any and all intact, clean, straight parts could be well worth pulling...
Pictures: All angles, all sides, front, back, inside, outside, underhood, dash, etc., etc., etc. !

Hi Lenny! Glad to see you on this board also. We appreciate your taking the time to inquire about possible REPU parts for us and I would like to remind all of us that the REPU,Courier and early piston Mazda parts are few and far between. A little cooperation between groups will help us all. Thanks again Lenny.

Greetings: Are you saying that people are having a hard time finding NON rotary Mazda parts trucks. I know where there are two not that far from me. I have pics if anyone is interested> Courierlenny

I suppose...

...the early piston-engine Mazda trucks have become pretty rare by now, too. I never see them...

Greetings: I must be blind or else a big liar. the vehicle I saw was a Mazda car with a Rotary engine, it is a 1974. I have pictures if any one is interested. I do not know how to post pics on this site, so if another member sends me an E mail, I will send the file to him. jalberta@telus.net

rx-2, rx-3, or rx-4 ???

Whichever it is... save it !!! (Or as much of it as can be salvaged.) Whatever it takes -- it's all getting rarer --.

Not to steal anyone's 'thunder' regarding Gallery content, etc. ... but you're more than welcome to create an album and put up some pic's at 'my' little MSN-Group, MazdaRotaryEnginePickup .

Whereabouts are you -- and these treasures -- located?

Greetings: I am in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada, and the car is at an auto wrecker about 2 hours west of me as a Courier drives.

Sounds great for any of us located...

...in the 'Great White North', but, from what I hear, getting cars across the border can be a real pain...
