hahhaah, we all do..

Ooooor stretch yer legs in a big ol V8. I have driven in a RX7, early ninties when the body style changed. Cool car, that Rotary engine is very neat techonolgy, I would only want it as a Sunday boot around car.

RX-7'* are great! Was it turbo'd?

I know someone who had two, basically making one good one out of it. The thing is just cool. I'll take it over ANY FWD car. Unless i'm moving to college.

yeah, in all its 1.3L glory. Rotarys are pretty cool... high revs, high hp, small displacement. Except for the dreaded apex seals, the equivalent of our head gaskets :(
