Hi guys,

First saw the car last year in Elizabeth St in Geelong West, she was looking real sad and in real need of some TLC. As of course being a rotary and sitting around for almost 2-3 years without a start, she wouldn't fire (most likely because of worn apex seals) and sounded like it had no compression. Some pictures of the horrors that lay before me.

nah she says white, a true clasic rx7 color and there will be no ricey bodykits either, she is getting restored to her former glory with a couple of 'functional' mods (for example one of the pop up light hoods now has a little vent for more airflow to where the turbo intake sits) im not a huge rice fan but i do like carbon fiber so i might do a few little hints of carbon fiber to finish the car off, no hoods or anything, just 'subtle' things Smile
