Ride Rating


My other RX-7. Picked it up a while ago from Kansas City and drove it down here to Florida. 24 mpg at 75 mph from a rotary???

Mostly stock except for the exhaust and coil-overs. Little rusty and has a bent rear axle. Been sitting for at least a year now. Plans now include a 5.0 / T-5 swap. 2nd gen front subframe, steering, and brakes. Ford 8.8 rear

24MPG? Jeebus. If Whitie had gotten that, I may have fixed the rust myself and kept it.

Looks EXACTLY like mine, if indeed the distance the picture was taken from is hiding the rust.

I swear you took this picture right before or right after we visited the office because I have a pic of the Yellow Cobalt SS we were in parked right next to your 7 like that. Love the color!

Love me some spark yellow RX-7. Looks like mine,but I don't have the cool Almex wheels. I need to get my engine back,so I can use it again before the snow falls.
