Awsome — The car was an ICON back in the 80s and even 90s and still people looks for this rare convertible ones, specially if is in the conditions that I've conserve it,the car use to have 160hp from factory,and I enjoy it but once I started to make it look more sportier had to make it faster,so I started working on it 3years ago and have spent bit over $10,000 under the hood,and now it produce over 400+hp to the wheel so it looks fast and it is fast and fun,reliable.Lots of people think rotary engine are not reliable but there wrong anything that you dont take care of is not reliable.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Great PWR,reliable,great paint and body,eye catching,head turner,3 way roof conversion,great handling.

Cons: Electric manual roof.

S5 T2 — Its fast. Its compact and easy to park. Not too bad on gas in most cases. Turbos are thirsty though. It handles like butter. Smooth!! The quality of the build is ok. Its an old car now so things are starting to break and mazda parts are kinda expensive. If you look in the right places you can make it happen. The car is so much fun to drive. You have to try one out if you never have.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Its an S5 Turbo 2. Hard to find.

Cons: Engine is kinda messed up

1989 Mazda Rx7 Fc Egi — 166bhp/160 stock. Plagued by rust but doesn't take away from the fun, needs care and attention to run properly. Interior is drab but exterior is beautiful. heavy on fuel. It is fantastic fun to drive, the snow makes it a little more interesting when the back end slides out, be wary.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: just 100% FUN

Cons: rust, high maintenance engine etc and build quality

Red Rocket Vomit Comet — Stupid Fast. Strap on big Arse Turbo, add some huge injectors / fuel pump and crank up the boost till you start going sideways. Done hundreds of drag races with it, not really a street car. It's evil twin is also in the picture. It prefers to eat Corvettes but, a Viper or Mustang will also do.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fast

Cons: Loud

Good Project Car And Drift Car — My FC only gets about 18mpg and needs frequent oil changes (rotary) but it is a lot of fun to drive, looks badass, handles pretty well. I plan on a turbo, scoop hood, new wheels/tires, and other cosmetics in the near future. Most FCs were bought originally as drift cars and are in pretty bad shape, but I lucked out with this find.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: ROTARY POWER!

Cons: Gas mileage

Matt's Rx7 — The pride of my garage. Owned the car for just over 5 years now. Spent way too much on it, but I guess that's what we do. Has had a Series 6 block with a T04H turbo fitted, and it goes as hard as it ever needs to on the street. Unfortunately, has been nothing but trouble as far as cops are concerned.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fast, head turning, amazing car to drive

Cons: A massive money funnel to keep running, massive cop magnet

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

My Rx7 — I absolutely love my car! i love the way it drives, the way it handles, and every dent that it has. I really have no complaints about my car at all. it is old and does have a few dents but it definitely is a trip and a blast to drive.

Pros: it handles amazingly well and is good with speed.

Cons: its got a rotery engine which not everyone works on.
