Sedans were more practical and preferred by Aussie drivers unlike the USA. 2-door coupes always were slow sellers Down Under. It was just a natural extension to offer the performance equipment in the sedans. Also related to this is that the sedans were raced in series based on production cars which meant the performance equipment had to be available to the public. The sedan also offered a more rigid body structure over a coupe thanks to the B-pillar which was important to some racers.I've often wondered what inspired the Aussie subsidiaries of the big 3 to begin the hi-performance sedan trend well before it took hold here in the States.
That looks like a Fiat body, but I'm not sure.About half way through there's a little gray thing with the hood off. The whole front end is motor. What kid of car is that?
Not sure which one you meant, but I didn't notice any Cosmos in the pictures. There were a number of RX models. The brown car with white interior is an RX-3.Some really cool and different cars at that show. Was that a Mazda Cosmo with white tuck-and-roll?
That would be the one, PW. You are correct - I got my Cosmos and RX3s mixed up. Some days it's all I can do to keep my Bel Airs and Impalas straight...Not sure which one you meant, but I didn't notice any Cosmos in the pictures. There were a number of RX models.
