This is my car :D
I too am a big ol fan of anything rotary- and as mazdaman says they are a heck of a lot more reliable than peopl think. Just warm them up properly and dont cane them until warm. I'm also getting 28 mpg on long truns with mine- pretty good for a old 70's car with 120 bhp and 110 lbft that will happily safely rev to 8000.
very usable as a daily driver!!!

yoeddynz, damn right! i'd live in that. Like I always say, you can live in your car but you can't drive your house.

Here's my current ride and my old ride (now sold).
