NOT A 20B TO BE SEEN

CAN’T SAY I was ever a huge fan of 70s Ja­panese metal but I re­mem­ber th­ese R X3s went like rock­et­ships and the prices are now go­ing the same way – up­wards and fast. They’ve a lways been pop­u­lar with mod­i­fiers, now they are com­mand­ing plent y and be­com­ing a rea l col­lec­tor’s piece, es­pe­cia lly orig­i­nal cars. So t his one wit h a f ull resto, an orig­i­nal and re­built 10a en­gine and 55,000 miles un­der its belt is ra rer t han a lotto win. Alt hough less ap­peal­ing to some than the twodoor, t hat was a race­track reg ular in t he 70s, it’s a ver y ta nta lis­ing propo­si­tion.
