Lovely Caterfield. What variety is it? I fancy building a locost (with a pre built casis) once we buy a house with an accessible garage.

I love that RX7.

One of the nicest looking Jap cars you can get I reckon.

I was always put off by the engine rebuild issues etc but they are a bargain and I'd love one.

Especially a big power one. MMm.

Any more pics of it?

Oh dear, i was worried this would happen, now you will see what my first love is and where all my money has gone!!!

512bhp uprated turbos, rotor tips, injectors, hoses, rotors, wastegate, induction, ecu, in fact nothing is original. Most of the lst 7 years have gone on this and its won a lot of awards as well as a couple of Jap magazine features. Really is my pride and joy but now also own a VW Camper and currently building it up but its a lot of work. Will post up pics soon!

Lovely 7 there mazdaman. I'm also a member of the rotary club but my 190 RX-8 pales in comparison with this but I like it. Except for t's poor bike carrying ability. Saris Bones 2 on the wanted list to fix that though.


May not be able to carry many bikes, but you could iron your trousers or eat a pic-nic off it! :shock:

Thanks for the comments about my car guys, i know a lot more about cars than bikes but like everything i get into i come out only accecpting perfection and the RX7 is my quest car. Had a Supra and a Skyline GTR33 before but against all myth the RX7 is the quickest real world car and can give a lot of very very expensive cars a black eye. They are more reliable than they are given credit for but have always been modified badly. i know of several that have done 100k. People dont buy Ferraris and not have a re-build every 20k so the RX7 just needs a bit more respect. People need to learn about the cars before they buy them. They think they can just add a big new Turbo and it not detonate rather then realise that the engine will require extra cooling and the ecu re-mapped to run more fuel!

I guess cars are just me thing. Oh and its running 11.17 1/4 but its a circuit car and like my bikes gets well abused!!!

Hundreds of pics on way, especially for Jez!!!!!! :lol:

And had to sell this to fund my new kitchen!

Miss the E30 and my Roadster more than I would ever miss the Accord!
