About

It all started when i decided my life would not be complete untill i owned a Mazda RX7. I looked at many but none grabbed my attention at first glance (Not only women should be able to do this boys!)

After looking at many different RX7's, One of my mates rang me up to tell me his friend was selling a Series 3 RX7, He had no idea what condition it was in, But he passed on a number. I ended up going to look at it that night.

It was 9pm by the time i left, I didnt have a torch and had no idea where i was going. After a bit of stuffing around i got to the house and there it was, Sitting in the driveway. It was defently love at first sight. I drove off with it 30 minutes later. I was very VERY happy!

unfortunately for me, Within a month the diff had sheered off some teeth, The gearbox was not engaging first all the time, The clutch had let go and the engine had spat out an apex seal. So off the road she came. I was going to just dodgey everything up to get her back on the road, But i decided if i was going to do it, I may as well do it properly the first time! Its been almost 2 years now. Hopefully she will be on the road by christmas.
