This is another car from Myron Vernis’ collection of unusual and unique cars. The Mazda Cosmo was Mazda’s first car with a rotary engine, the first production two rotor Wankel. There may be three or four in North America today, including one in Jay Leno’s collection. Vernis’ car is rarer than Leno’s since Jay’s Cosmo has been retrofitted with a more modern engine from a RX-7. The engine in Myron’s car is the original powerplant, though it’s been rebuilt. Vernis takes pride in the fact that the car isn’t a trailer queen. He believes it to be the “most driven” Cosmo in existence. As a matter of fact he drove it to the 2014 Eyes On Design show from his hotel, some distance from the show.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
