12 points for Austria!
Yes, the seller had photoshop'ed the picture to remove a dent in the front bumper (which also included a dent in the metal piece below the headligth) - and in the process the headligth washers also disappeared!
The car was described as "in new" condition and although the car is in VERY good condition it is not as new - mainly because of scratches to the pumpers done by the 80+ years old former owner.
So why did I buy the car when the seller clearly was dishonest? Well, when you invest EUR 600 to travel from Copenhagen to Germany together with your mechanic then you feel a little pressure to close the deal.
The car is parked in front of my mechanic's workshop, the other cars belonging to other customers. Well, the HC in the background is for parts.
As appears, my mechanic is mainly dealing with older cars, especially old Mazdas. The HC is his favourite car which he can take apart (and put together) virtually blindfolded.
He is also very experienced in rotary engines having rebuild and serviced these engines since the RX-2 was introduced. He has also been racing a RX-2 in the 1970s. The red car in front of my car is actually a RX-7 FD which is in for an engine rebuild.
The JC Cosmo in the background is a 13B. The car is in for repair as the autobox went belly-up. The owner has now sourced a used box from Japan which should be on its way. There is also a 20B in Denmark.
Otherwise I have seen JC Cosmos from Sweden, Norway, UK and Germany.
