1986 Mazda Rx-7 Gxl Coupe 2-door 1.3l Bridge-ported Engine Only Run A Few Times on 2040-cars
Goode, Virginia, United States
This is a project care for someone that wants to have fun with it. The previous owner bridge-ported the engine for maximum gas flow. Then got in trouble and never finished it. I understand that is very expensive to do. I just put the battery, a freshly re-manufactured Holley 650 cfm carburetor, a nice Holey fuel pump and new spark plugs. It fired up but it is a race car not a daily driver for me. It has huge stainless steel exhaust pips and is loud. Fast and loud. I took it out a few times but it got fowled out because I did not use the racing spark plugs. Selling it as is where is as a project for someone who know how to work on the rotary engine. I also have a origional fuel injection for it but I am not sure that would make this engine go. It has had the a/c remove and the power steering for racing. I have some of that I think. I drove it fine without power steering. Body need paint see the pictures. I had this running but it has been sitting and I started it about every month but now it seems the plugs are fowled or something. Needs work to get it running. I bought this originally for my son to drive but did not know it was modified to race. I didn't know till I started it. Wow then I knew so he never got to drive it.

Competitors in the small-car segment didn't do nearly as well. Four vehicles earned "poor" grades.
Only one small car out of 12 tested earned a good grade in the latest round of crash-test results compiled by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The Mini Cooper Countryman received a "good" ranking on the organization's small-front overlap test.

Despite the PRHT's availability, some are still yearning for a proper fixed-head coupe.
We are just days away from the official unveiling of the next-generation 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata on September 3, and it's fair to say that the mouths of enthusiasts are watering in anticipation for the latest version of this iconic roadster. Hard facts about the new droptop aren't easy to find, and in the absence of further disclosure from Mazda officials, the rumormill is in full swing, including word that a long-awaited hardtop coupe model will figure into the new generation's plans.
Over the past 25 years and 3 model generations, the Mazda MX-5 Miata has shown that you don't have to be the best to be a massive success. The little, Japanese roadster has never been the absolute peak of automotive performance, but it's precise handling, good reliability and frugal running costs have helped make it a star. Autoblog recently tried to give you the experience of driving one on video, and now Xcar Films has made its own in an attempt to show what makes this droptop an icon.
As Xcar puts it, the Miata isn't the world's best sports car, but it is the world's favorite. When they were originally designing the roadster, Mazda's engineers took everything that made British droptops from the '60s great, and junked all of the stuff that made them a terror to own. The result was a car that would start up everyday with no fuss and get drivers wherever they needed to go with a huge grin on their face.
The fourth-generation Miata is imminently on the way for its September 3 unveiling, and the very early rumors indicate that Mazda doesn't plan to rock the boat too much with the latest one. It supposedly rides on a longer wheelbase and wider track but with the weight trimmed by over 200 pounds. Check out Xcar's video for a primer on MX-5 history and why the automotive world loves this little roadster.
