    1987 Mazda Rx-7 — Great car, handles like a true sports car, fun to drive and even funner to drift, light and sturdy. nice body style and i love the sound the rotary makes coming from the exhaust. it's what you'd expect from a 2.5 litre engine or more but is only a 1.3. rotary power forever!!

    Pros: sporty style, great handling, fun to drift, all around good car

    Cons: only wish is that it was turbo however acceleration is still superb

    Amazing Car To Drive — I have owned this car for about 3 years now, i bought it when the car was pretty much stock and now it is pretty well modified, i have ported the motor and then some. I love it. Definitely a fun car. It is the turbo model and is pushing about 300 wheel horsepower. But being in the military oversees has cause some strain on keeping the car up and running, as it sits back in Idaho.

    Pros: Handling and uniquness

    Cons: space ship interior

    My Car's Nickname Is 'oyaji'... For A Reason — We bought her 3rd hand, replaced her engine with a JDM model, overhauled the electrical... and she still has battery issues. But she's my 1st sports car, and man can she take off! I love listening to the turbo spool!

    Pros: Light weight and quick!  I love the looks the BMW wierdo's give you when you zoom by 'em in this little tart.

    Cons: She's old and still has electrical problems.

    Light, Nimble, Hardcore — RX-7 TII. No creature comforts, theyve been taken out. car will soon be turned from a daily driver/track car to a track car. I break my car... the car doesn't break... therefore its reliable... wait, if it was reliable then it wouldnt break down no matter what. Anyway it has 70K mi. it just turned 21 years old. Does that mean it can run on alcohol now?

    Pros: engine runs strong and true

    Cons: everything else is at max life...

    My One True Love — I loved my RX-7, the day I finished destroying the clutch was a sad day. There is just so much to be said about this car. I love the feel and sound of the 13B, the light weight nature of this car is amazing.

    Pros: Fast, nimble, and beautiful

    Cons: it's an older car

    13b Non Turbo Rotory. — Much more improved car over the previous generation. Sure they are a little heavier, but they have more then enough power to make up for it. Handles just as good if not slightly better then the lighter ones before it. Flat torque makes accelerating feel wierd, no real surge of power.

    Pros: revs smooth, good acceleration despite no turbo

    Cons: heavy, gas mileage, non turbo model lacks any real punch

    Fc3s (s4) — car needed brakes and a paint job. rebuilt the front rotor. i had a warm time re-routing the vacuum lines. love the sound of the bov in this car. it might have been a old school HKS one, i was paying too much attention back then... got a 4 puck kevlar clutch, manual boost controller(8psi) full 3" catback exhuast. theres mor ebut i cant remember sold it becuase of no money to fix brakes

    Pros: very quick, very comfy

    Cons: gas millage, oil consumption
