I have had a 1985 RX7 GSL-SE for 3 years now, and have done a lot of home work! It is the cheapest motor to rebuild and the cheapest to get big horse power out of! This is my kind of car. I have owned a lot of hot rods and built all of them. You can keep them!!! Nothing sounds like a 13b twisted up!!! Ya baby, now that's power, I would rebuild one every week if I had to!

I was lucky enough to find a 1985 RX GSL SE for 400 bucks, it'll be my first car and it's totally mint. It looks brand new and it's the funnest thing I have ever driven. More fun than my Tacoma, and it's an 08.

Rotary engines are in my opinion awesome. Behold the power to weight ratio. LOL.

I got a 85 RX7 couple months ago for my first car, and I love driving it. My mom isn't too happy about it, because she thinks I'm gonna lose my license til I'm 18. But my dash lights don't work and my turn signals don't work, and when I start it, it smokes really bad, and I don't know if that has anything to do with catalytic converter or what? PLEASE HELP ME with finding out where to look for all these problems!!!

Wow to the guy who said rotaries are some of the least reliable motors and won't go past 150k; any rotary, if you take care of it, will go well past 200k miles. The fact is you have to take care of them. The most popular quote I hear is if you want a Porsche and can't afford one, buy an RX7.

Yep, triangles are not worth having under your hood. Swap a Nissan or Chevy engine in there (most likely a LS family chevy) and have fun. Now they're neat looking and driving cars, but they're very old tech, and truthfully, don't go like they should if they were a true sports car.
You do know you're talking about 80s Japanese muscle, these cars were made to be beaten badly on high ways and auto cross's. Not to be shoved in next to a TR6 in some old guy's garage.
