They look out of place on the AX but I like them on the XM.
Could do with some on the Mazda, the headlights are very poor. Never going to happen of course.

The other one, on the thread was this

The main feature of that one really needs to be noted the "Interiors and Dashboards ( Interesting and Awful)" thread, strangely at both ends of the spectrum. Quite a head turner, but generally more "aargh!" than "ooh!" :-D

A now Rare Estate up for auction at Mathewsons.
Bit of 1974 publicity for it, and the marketing phrase used at the time.

The 2300 version was apparently faster from 30-50 than a selected Ferrari and a selected Porsche.

My ex Father-in Law had one and offered to sell it to me for £1300 but I found a comparable option for £1.30 :-D :

Only 33 licenced Magnum's of all classes on the roads of the United Kingdom, so the 3-door estate version is indeed a rarity.

I suspect this 1976 variation is even rarer only 197 ever made...the "dropsnoot" Vauxall Magnum Sportshatch 3-door Estate.
