I've been looking for a project car for a while. Not just a car to do mods to, but an actual project. Several ideas have come to mind, one that I could never put to rest though was the temptation of an RX-7. And after talking to a few people and doing some research, I finally figured I'd go with that. I was looking for an FC for sure, FD's are just too far out of my budget. Looked on ebay and craigslist, but I could never find one that fit the bill, it either was a rust pit with a non running engine, or in decent shape with a running engine. First one not being worth the time, second one being too pricey. I Found one on ebay on friday with 5 minutes remaining on the auction with no reserve. Didn't have an engine or a transmission, but the body was rust free and no accidents on its record. I managed to get it for $455.
It's currently located near Fort Lauderdale, Florida, but its being loaded on a hauler Monday and on a 1300 mile trek to St. Louis.
Ordered a bunch of parts for it already, Radiator, Transmission, brakes, carpet, the missing factory spoiler, clutch, and a flywheel.
I have a few parts laying around I'm going to use for it too, MSD ignition for one.
