Here's a photoshoot I just did of a 1985 RX-7 owned by my friend's mom. All original except the radio!

Awesome photos indeed, one of the best shapes I think to come from Toyo Kogyo!

Amazing! Best RX-7 pictures I've seen in a while. I especially appreciate the interior shots. Do you have a website?

I've owned my fb for almost 5 years, and in the time I've had it the dash lights have never worked. From your pictures I can see that the gauges look great illuminated, and I really need to find somebody who knows a thing or two about electronics..

Thanks for the comments, I appreciate it! There's just something so cool about having the original paint and all the original badges in such great shape.

and the pinstripes which I don't like. The rest of the car is super clean though. I rate the Series II, more of a sports car than the Series III.

Fantastic photos. Very impressive.

Very nice car as well. I love FBs - I've owned two in the past.

Oh yeah I'm into FB's!

Those are some fantastic photos! Gorgeous car nice and original. I have a 1985 and it still has the original paint and radio. I have owned it since '96, and yes I still have the original wheels. :)

I have been finding more and more original FB's lately as they become older and they start coming out of the wood work. I'm glad to see that there are others out there who love them as much as I do.
