Masahiro Moro, executive director global sales and marketing for Mazda, climbs into the driver’s seat of a “brand new” 1995 Mazda RX7 twin turbo as Don Romano, president of Mazda Canada watches during a tour of the new Wolfe Chilliwack Mazda dealership on Tuesday. Moro was visiting from Japan and was in Chilliwack with other North American Mazda representatives to officially open the new dealership. To boot, Moro got to check out this RX7 sports car which he had a hand in designing. This rare vehicle is a third generation RX7 and was only sold for three years in North America. This specific car has an interesting history. Not only does it have only 200 test miles on it, but it was originally purchased by the owner of a Mazda dealership in Florida where it was kept in storage. Years later, Mike Hacquard, co-owner of Chilliwack Mazda, found it for sale on eBay and purchased it. The car lived in Langley for a while until it moved out to Chilliwack when the new dealership opened.
