Re: The Latest 1st gen sightings - B735 VHU

I'm not sure when this car was found in a barn. But it came from my town, guy bought it to restore and either realized it was too big a job or as he said had other projects first. Sold it for £800ish. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1985-Mazda-Rx-7-FB-s3-manual-Barn-Find-/254807097338?_trksid=p2349624.m4...

That's the guy.
I need do some more cutting but I suspect I'll need 2x sills and at least 1 rear arch.

Re: 1982 S2 Unidentifiable noise

I had a similar issue years back from a 3 series, if it occurs at low speed as mine done I had a friend run alongside the car at l...
