Nice find! Did it have those RX-7 wheels on it when you picked it up? How long had it been sitting?

The original had rust holes. It was repairable but I found this hood(bonnet) locally.

I would have absolutely no problems driving her looking like that. Beautiful! Would you care to share your plans for the motor/trans? Original or 13bt/tt?
