So, this is what it's like...didn't think I'd be posting in this section for a while, but the time has come...

The new car was delivered tonight, bit too dark for any pics, so you'll have to wait until tomorrow ;)

yep :D

We're now the proud owners of a RX7 Mk1 series 3 FB

12A rotary engine, with a carb :shock:

Driving it is very much like a 1970s film - lots of steering wheel movement, no actual car movement :lol: - I think that's down to the steering box!!! :shock:


It does drive really nice though, and very different to anything else - and oh what a noise :D



I had it delivered, as we were at opposite ends of the country :roll:

Image

Image

Image


It's parked on Garaths drive, as he has plenty of room, and has kindly offered to tackle the worst of the cars problems...the rust monkeys have been playing hard on this one :(


finger through here...

Image

and here...

Image

Image

Image


Owning an RX7 is like having a puppy...they leave little piles of mess for you to clear up :lol:

Image

Image



Still, it's a beautiful car, I have longed for one of these since I was a young lad, so all the hard work and effort will be worth it, and it'll all come good in the end ;)


So, here he is - meet Vyv :)

proper cool!

so now you can show me the porting the 12a to 150bhp

you and garath are like wheeler dealers now, you buy it and bugger off and he fixes it! nice one! :lol:

i quite fancy the later rx7 from that one is it the fc? not the one everyone knows but the older one late 80's early 90's, wee turb0 one in black looks proper badass :lol: or red is no bad aswell. nearly went for a silver one couple years ago as was £900 but prolly better i didn't :lol:

get some nice retro wheels on it now!

I only said I wanted one, needed one, and now we've got one....

I spent years and years and years convincing my parents I needed a dog, or a pony, and it got me nowhere :(
In just under a day I convinced Marc about having an RX7 :? :lol:

Cheers Marc. She looks lovely.

Looks as rusty as the FC that I almost bought, looks almost the same color.
The wheels look mint though, like new!

Cool! This sits bang in the middle of the Fd and Mx5. How much tax you paying on it by the way? Someone seems to be kicking up a stink on MRC http://www.mazdarotaryclub.com/forums/s ... hp?t=62442
