THE NEW KID ON THE BLOCK! 1990 RX7 S5 Turbo II

Now that I’ve got your attention, I’ll lead in by saying that this car is NOT a replacement for Derpy. The plans for this bad boy are to make it my streetable track car. It’ll get coilovers, a good brake system and some tuning, but outside of that, it’ll mostly remain a street car. The plan is, if it’s not in the mountains, on a joy ride or at the track, it’ll be parked or at the shop (apex seals, LOL)

 

A little about the car:

It’s a 1990 FC3S Turbo II, it’s got 166k on it, and it’s on its second engine. This engine comes DIRECTLY from Japan and was rebuilt before going in. It’s a one owner car, yep, the previous owner bought it BRAND NEW, and it feels like it! Everything (with very little exception) is very tight and it pulls strong. It needs some odds and ends, but for the price I got it and the condition its in, I’m not complaining. Hopefully this will progress into a nice little side project that I can tinker on while the shop has their hands on Derpy.

 

I’ll post some pics, then we’ll get on with the VLOG post.

 

Picking the 7 up. Had to drive down to Destin to get it! Good hike but totally worth the time!

 

Front shot and don’t worry, that plate holder is off and will remain that way until I can think of something ricey to put on it, LOL!

 

Finally home with it. Unloaded it and got some much deserved sleep! Very excited!

 

 

And here’s the video from the latest VLOG about it.
