    Finally got my RX2 (Project Begins)

    Well my story starts by driving from TX to Iowa 15 Hours to go c this RX2 I was going to buy. After 15 straight hours i get to the house, we open the garage and wow their she was, shes in great condition just a little bump here and their absolutely no rust, the floors are new, nothing is missing and she only has 65,007 original miles, even the cigarette lighter works.
    I pay the man and load it up on my truck to drive 15 hours back home (TX).

    Here's the good part, after some good research I contacted the original owner and the car was garaged from 1991 to 2005 when it was restored and painted then sold to the person who I bought it from who stored it from 2005 to 2009 installed the 13B 6 port streetport engine and gsl-se tranny and lsd and sold it to me.

    The car hasn't been registered since 1991 so its like if I was the second owner.

    Hers some pics.






    Garage at home safe.

    The car is beautiful. You started off with a clean, well cared-for example and made it even nicer with the right parts. Good job!

    I think bridgeports sound great on oldschool rotarys, plus cant complain on the power increase
