Well yesterday a friend,and I drove from one end of MA to the other(around 200 miles) through tight curving roads,and some snow squalls to pick up a new ride. It is a one owner 79 RX-7 S in Sonic Bronze with a blacked out hood,rear louvers,three piece fiberglass spoiler,and a sweet set of 15X7 Weds Auto Bahn wheels. It isn't running,but it only has 73k original miles,and shouldn't be too tough to get going. The engine is free turning by hand,but who knows what shape the fuel system is in. The plans for now are to steal the Weds for my RX-7 GS,or the RX-4,and then get it running hopefully with little money invested. If I can do this,and my father can come up with some dough to buy it from me it will be his. If not I will pass it along (without the Weds) to some one else. Tell me what you think. It is a bit dirty even after the soaking with some water to get most of the salt off,but it is surprisingly mostly rust free. It is an early production car,and the owner also gave me a box full of magazines,and what looks like every issue of Rotary Rocket magazine in nice binders. He also gave me a stack of receipts from the local dealer where he had it serviced. It even had a recall done around ten years after the car was sold for an idler arm issue in the rust belt states.

That's a really nice find! I love the louvers, wheels, and early-model taillights. :tu:

Hey guys I took the Weds off the Sonic Bronze car,added some slightly used Falzen Azenis 615's from a friend in the 205-50/15 variety,and mounted them on my Spark Yellow 78 GS. I have no idea how to post pics here,but here is a link to my site with the pics.

Let me know what you think.

If you ever get the itch scanning all those old mags and newsletters would be pretty cool resource for the 1st gen crowd.
