Default One clean RX-7

I just barely captured this beautiful RX-7 one-handed on my camera as I was driving through town and had to share it. I haven't seen it before today,but then again we just had Cool April Nights a few weeks ago and I'm still seeing a lot of classic street cars out on the road. I wish I could have talked with the owner for a few minutes but he was about to turn right a few seconds after I got close enough for a shot. I don't think I've seen in person another RX-7 this nice.

FC Rx7's are so cool. I'd want one if I wasn't so rotarded. Wonder if it was a tII or just n/a? Looks n/a, but who knows!

Those are super rare in that condition. Most are beat to crap. Nice color too

Of course it needs CCW C10s but I can go that later.

There are many times I wish I build an LSxFD instead of my car.

I love FCs...and FDs. Hell, my first car was a 91 GTU FC.

I will have another one eventually.

I had a beat-to-crap FC for a while in college. It was a sharp-handling gutless car with lots of gremlins (probably because it was beat to crap and had a zillion miles on it). It was fun, but my least favorite RX-7. For daily hooning I preferred my '84 GSL-SE with bald tires, rusted out exhaust, and scary-sloppy steering. Man that thing was fun...

I rode in an LS3-swapped FD last weekend... Sweet Tap-Dancing Jesus that thing was quick...

Mine when I sold it. I almost regret selling it too. Almost.

On my way to Office Depot today I spotted yet another gorgeous RX7, and this one's definitely turbo'd. Owner was no where in sight so I couldn't get any info about its build. At least I was able to get a few photos on my cell phone. Wheels are ASDs.

Hah, I love it that this forum is full of ex-RX-7 owners. I think I'll probably pick up another one soon. I fit better in them than in my NB.

Pretty sure I'll be doing an LSx build though, never had much luck with turbo rotaries, they seemed to have a 10-20,000 mile max and I commute a lot for work.
