Wow, that's possibly a really good deal on a "Five-Letter" RX-7 if you're rotary-savvy!

I sold mine to a guy 10 years ago with a title for $750. 3 years ago it turned up in LKQ. I was a little hurt by that, but not enough to try to save it.

No title pretty much kills that one.

If it had a title, I'd take a chance on it.

It's gone, though. The parts that are NLA on that were worth way more than the asking price.

I know different states have different Title laws, and some don't require a title for older cars, but this is a pretty informative article on some of the options available for situations like this, in the future.

Almost identical to one I had twelve years ago, but mine was silver. It needed a new emission computer and I could not find a new-old-stock for less than half the value of the car used. Living in an apartment complex that frowned on working on cars, and really strict city on street parking rules resulted in me donating it to the local PBS car repair program after buying another working car.

The rear end will fit in a Datsun Roadster with a little work gaining you an LSD and rear disc brakes. That rear end alone sells for @$1k in that world
