Hey guys- been on here for a few months but never posted.
Definitely hooked on rotary engines, I keep buying RX-7s as they're the cheapest way to get them, ha!
Here's what all I've got so far:
1983 GS w/ 86K miles, 2nd owner car. Owned since 2006, no plans to ever sell.
1988 Base model, with lots of mods. Got in 2009 for free, as it wouldn't start and was about to go to the crusher! Definitely saved this one. Now has a rebuilt engine, AC, etc etc a nice dependable daily driver
Came out to the '88 one day, & someone had left a note on it. "would you like to buy another RX-7- 1987, runs/drives, has extra engine & trans..." I'm thinking, well, yea. So I ring the guy, & he wants $800. My GF & I were discussing a project car, & here's one that's fallen right into our lap. Upon seeing it, we realize it's a rare sport model, w/o sunroof, but has a bad coolant seal. We ended up getting it for $600, and are working on resto-modding it!
I just graduated USF in mechanical engineering, & my parents bought this as my graduation present. It's an '89, with 67K miles. It was parked in a ladies garage just a block down the street, and hadn't ran since around 2003!! I spent a lot of free time (since school wasn't any longer a priority, haha) getting it back looking like it had the milage it had
And after buffing/cleaning/getting it running reliably/etc
That's all I own for now, however here's what I'm going to be picking up this weekend: an '89 GTUs. Another car that's sat some time (since 2004 this time). Shouldn't be too terrible to bring back to life
And I'll also be trading some Turbo2 FC parts for this engine-less '83. Plan on it is to go either S5 NA engine, or possibly either S4/S5 T2, keeping all the stock ECU/wiring/injection etc, to have a nice reliable easy to drive car.
I guess you can officially call me a hoarder, since I'll have 6 at one time. In my defense though, I can't bear to see them go to the crushers, or to owners who neglect them and catalyst their time to the crushers, haha. But hey, I'm having a blast fixing them up & driving them around. Hope you guys enjoy! I'll get some more pictures/story up once I get a free bit
