    Real or Model #234
    If you know the source of the photo don't post that info here! It ruins the game for everyone else.
     
    So what do you think? Real or model?

     
    I'll try this again....

    Here's mine. Currently armed with a rolled up paper, though...

     
    You did ask for it!

    I was lucky enough to see a single one in my life. Quite rare here in Australia. Have a go at Auto ID #168, but this time, please PM me

    As someone spoiled the last round before Monday was even over, here, have another. No, it's front wheels are not stock.
    Remember, don't post any hints or answers here. PM me (NOT Harry!!) with year, make, and model.
     

    1969 Mazda R100
    Australian export version. The 1968 and early 1969 version had different side indicators and a longer rear parcel shelf.
    For the later 1969-70 model, to make more passenger room, they shortened the rear parcel shelf so they could lean the seats back. Of course, tall people would now hit their heads on the window frame!.
    1971 saw the R100 updated to Series 2, with modified front suspension, different door handles, different trim, and an even shorter parcel shelf. The model was discontinued in 1973, although in Australia, the 1971 was the last model to be imported.
    Late in the piece, there was a wide bodied variant.
     
    The car shown above was my third R100.

    Are you sure it isn't a roller-skate?

    Having found it several times while searching for recent Auto ID, I thought this one would be easy. Apparently not!
  12. otherunicorn added a post in a topic Auto ID #166 Finished   

    Too tough, perhaps? And I thought I'd picked a relatively easy one...

    With Harry's blessing, I will be babysitting Auto ID until he can take the reins again.

    Nothing too serious, I hope. All the best.

    The problem is after a while, they all start to look the same. There must have been a lot of inter-company copying. It's still the same now.
