Good to see another Kiwi on here, Chur bro. I'm London based too.

Your car is quite well known here. I first spotted it in 2013 at Brooklands. Turned up to the Spring Rotor show and took home the prize for best 1st Gen. It's probably the closest to a councours condition RX7 that I had seen at that time.

The guy had just purchased it and paid all the money for it too (around £8500 which was BIG money back then). It's passed thru a few hands since then, mainly dealers I think.

The last I saw, it had sustained light damage being unloaded off a trailer to it's new owner and ended up on EBay. I hope that it has held up well over the last six years.

Here it is at Brooklands before winning the award viewtopic.php?f=20&t=12&start=3230#p42986

Thanks guys. I must say I’m starting to fantasise about driving up north in the RX during the kiwi summer...might have to settle for a drive to Cornwall on a dry weekend. I’m loving reading the forum. If anyone knows where I can get some OEM (or OEM style) FB mudflaps do let me know.
Please read your PM Richard!

Ohh err. Shiny OEM mudflaps. Almost impossible to find, especially in that sort of condition! :thumbup:

I bought the car off eBay. When I went and saw it I couldn’t believe what good condition it was in, even with the damage. I took it to Jason at Super7 Autos and he and the team did a great job with the repair and bumper reseat, it really is fantastic work. I’m hoping to one day take it back to NZ with me. I have had work done to it to keep it original and get it running sweet. I drove it to Winchester in the weekend and it didn’t miss a beat. Sorry for the delayed reply, I didn’t realise there was a 2nd page 🤷‍♂️

P.S I have the 2013 Brooklands trophy next to my bed. I’m not sure the car is concourse anymore but it’s in very good order.
