You gotta love 'em

Vehicle: 1990 Mazda RX-7 Turbo 2dr Hatchback

Have owned 3 of these, and never owned another car. '86 base, '88 GTU and now my '90 Turbo II. It's a beautiful car on the outside with that perfect sports car look, but nothing too radical that will end up looking dated, even now 20 years after the design inception. The handling is top notch, and with a simple plus size tire and wheel upgrade the next time you need new tires you'll stick to the road like glue. Comments abound on the car, and most people can't believe it is a '90. It's funny how many people think the car is only 5 or 6 years old. Grab a turbo if you can, they are most definitely the most fun of the different versions. I'd love a convertible for the summer.

Vehicle: 1990 Mazda RX-7 Turbo 2dr Hatchback

I just love the car. I would suggest it might be a car more suited to someone willing to do his own mechanical work. Especially as they get older, even one in good condition will likely need some attention. Incredibly fun car, can be had cheap, and the design looks surprisingly up to date, not losing much to newer cars on the road today in the looks category. Great option for an affordable sports car, that can respond very well to modification. The turbo models can be hard to come by, if you get one, take care of her!

Vehicle: 1990 Mazda RX-7 Turbo 2dr Hatchback

extremely fast car, fun to drive. has minor reliability quarks but they'r worth the trouble. turbo boosts well at 6.5 psi. dont drive in rain or snow because traction is minimal. and sometimes traction is bad on old roads but only when driving with a heavy foot.

OBO; it's even the right color. From the RX-7 topic, I found a place that offers a 24-month warranty on a 13-B rebuild for about $3,500 plus local installation; 12-month warranty engines are about ...

But I've still missed my RX-7 badly and I'm going to be patient whatever happens, as I wait for my RX-8 AT with VINs greater than 159000 to arrive at any Boston metro area dealerships....
