Hi everyone,
Name is Richard Originally from Puerto Rico and now living in North Carolina US since I am in the Army.
I bought a 1985 rx-7 from the second owner a 50 yr old man and I love the car, I found this site looking for ideas for my 7, (next week I Might pick another one really cheap) These car make you fall in love with them.

here are a cpl of pics

Plans:
Clean up the engine
install E-fan
Racing Beat Header
fix the small blemishes in the body
lower it a little bit and put some OG rims
(I do not want to go too crazy with it since it is so original)
that is the reason i am picking up another one,
here is a pic with my other cars

Wow - it looks really nice. I agree that the interior is a great color. Mine has the red interior which tends to fade to brown over time. The previous owner had the door panels dyed to correct that, but there are some bits, like the gear shift boot that have faded to brown. If you want to upgrade the wheels, consider the Rotas RB. http://www.rotawheels.com/

See pics of my 85 here: http://s299.photobucket.com/albums/mm310/pqjim/

Free RX4?! :shock: Lucky!!! Sometimes it's nice to live in an area of the country where these cars aren't well respected.

You(he) can't beat free. Pretty awesome find. :tu:
Did you work something out to get it from the current owner?? Will he part ways with it?
That is a really good looking RX4. :tu:
