Mazda has been an industry leader since its founding in Hiroshima in
1920 with a versatile line-up of cars, trucks and SUVs all with a
notable performance slant. Originally named the Toyo Cork Kogyo Company,
the car maker began its journey to automotive excellence as a
manufacturer of machine tools before it switched its focus to
automobiles. In 1927, the marque underwent a slight name change,
rebranding itself as Toyo Kogyo, Ltd. and produced its first model, the
Mazdago. The Mazdago was an inspired design that brought together the
versatility of an open wagon design, the agility of a motorcycle and the
utility of a pickup. Its unique, three wheel design made it both
incredibly nimble and eye-catching as it zoomed down the roads of
Hiroshima. The founder of the company, Jujiro Matsuda, chose the name
Mazda in honor of the Zoroastrian god of goodness and light in the hope
that such an auspicious name would bring good fortune to the company.
With the arrival of WWII Mazda, like all Japanese automakers, was
pressed into service for the military, effectively bring the nascent
brand's momentum to a halt.
The decades after the war were difficult but in 1960 Mazda debuted
the two-door R360 which was the first truly modern Mazda coupe and would
become the model for all successive generations of Mazda vehicles
exemplifying efficiency, performance and style that put it a cut above
the rest. In the 1970s, Mazda began to export its lines of cars and
trucks to the US and, as luck would have it, Mazda vehicles proved to be
a great alternative to American-made gas guzzlers during the oil-crisis.
The famed RX-7 was first released during the second-half of the decade
and became an instant success as a result of its Wankel-designed rotary
engine. In spite of all of its successes, Mazda was in dire financial
straits which led to Ford Motor Company bailing them out in 1979. This
investment resulted in the redesign of the B-line of trucks as well as
in the creation of the Escort.
Mazda has always been an innovator and it entered the second
millennium with a more diverse and attractively priced line-up than at
any other time in its history. Today not only can Mazda count on the
success of its workhorses the Mazda 6 and Mazda 3 but on its crossover
SUV the CX-7 and performance models like the RX-8 and the newly launched
RX-9. At Rvinyl.com, we're as passionate about the styling and
