Remembering Japanese cars from the past

Mazda RX-500 concept car in the woods

In 1970 Mazda showed on the 17th Tokyo Motor Show one of the most extraordinary concept cars for its time: the RX-500. After 40 years this car is still as amazing as it was in 1970,

The only thing that bugs me is: what is it doing in the middle of a forest and why do the boy and girl in the background embrace each other? Are they afraid of the whole car? Is ti threatening them? What mastermind thought of such a bad publicity photo? ??(?????)??
