Fun Fun — Bought this car when i was in HS. Restored it with my uncle. Great car but expensive! Anytime you needed a part it costed double or triple normal parts cost. Some parts were super hard to find as well due to the somewhat rarity of these cars. Loved driving it! Lots of fun and lookd awesome!!! A great hobby car but not a daily driver!!!

Pros: Fun to drive, looked great!

Cons: ac was to expensive to repair, a bit of a "high maintaince" car

Rx-7 — For current standards the 100 hp 12a rotary just doesnt cut it, too slow in every aspect besides launch and shift surge which both are due to it being rear wheel drive, the rotary engines are riddled with problems and u need to learn almost a new language to coherently work on one, the car exterior is beautiful and yet aggressive when done right the interior is very well loaded with ac, power everything sunroof and all the perks, even cruise control in an 84 manual trans! the gas millage sucks as for all rotaries but stock its not to bad, the car is very fun to drive the rear wheel drive in snow makes it unbelievable fun to drift. I would recommend it to a friend if it was in good condition because fixing this motor is different from all others often taking $200 an hour for a rotary specialist to fix.

Pros: Rear wheel drive verry well equiped even by modern day standards, very easy to make fast...

Cons: stock horsepower, 2 seater.

My Second Rx-7 — This was the second of the two 1984 RX-7s that I owned. The engine was blown when I bought it, but I was already planning on replacing it with the engine from my wrecked RX-7. This one suffered the same fate as my first one. Wrecked.

Pros: It was pretty fun to drive.

Cons: You were lucky to get 100,000 miles on one of the rotary engines.

Mazda Rx-7 Gen.1 — What a fun car, my first car and probably one that I'll end up buying again to have as a project. Performance is top notch with very close to 50/50 distribution if you tweak with aftermarket struts. The rotary can spin to 8k and they only warn you there because it's OEM. Watch for carbon lock on those 13a/b's and it's a blast to drive.

Pros: great handling, super fun to drive, great styling

Cons: carbon lock, heat generation and gas mileage are issues needing to stay on top of.

Rx-7 — The First Car that I fell in love with. The first time that I rode it that car I was 8 yrs old and ever since that day it was dream to own that car. Now I do. Though since it is an old vehicle, there are a lot of repairs that had to be made; an on going process.

Pros: Quick acceleration, nice handle.

Cons: A time when power steering and A/C was a luxury

It's All About The Rotory ... — This car is every drifters dream it's perfectly balanced and with a little help the motor will run up for ever.

Pros: Rotary Powered Rear Wheel drive drift monster!!

Cons: yeah ... it's 25 years old and still running on the original motor ... right cons only if you don't know how to take care of a rotary.

Was Fun — this car was a blast for the 2 months that I had it, handled like it was on rails, or at least most of the time it did, it was extremely fickle and subsequently ended up in a jersey wall at low speed, totaling it.

Good Solid Car — This is my 84 RX-7, it's got a 1.1L rotary engine with pretty good acceleration for only having a hundred BHP when it was new, it's got crazy good turn in and can take a corner quickly without under or oversteer. The braking is a little spongey. As for appearance it could use a new paintjob and a little body work on the body kit. The interior could use a little work. It's fun to drive and is a good solid car.

Pros: the engine

Cons: the paint
