Would You Pay $20k For A Practically Brand New 1987 Mazda 626?

The third-generation Mazda 626 sold very well in Europe between 1982 and 1987, and this 5-door hatchback version was by far the most practical option in the range.

Now, somebody's trying to sell a 1987 facelifted example on cc-cars for no less than 129,000 DKK - which, at current exchange rates, amounts to around $20,000! The reason why they're asking so much is because the car has less than 1,000 km (621 miles) on the clock.

Looking at its interior, we spot electric windows, a sunroof and an automatic transmission, which is probably the four-speed one introduced in 1987 that replaced the three-speed one used previously.

All things considered, this 626 looks pretty good, especially for those of us who grew up admiring these types of mid-size family cars. Go back in time and put this exact spec model on the road, and you'd get plenty of attention from your fellow motorists.

Anyhow, asking 20 grand in late 2017 for a 30-year old Mazda 626 is, in our opinion, quite a stretch - but to each his own. Would you be willing to pay that much for it? Chip in in the comments section below.
