 This is a 1979 Limited Edition RX7 in which there were only 3000 produced world wide. Here is a chance to own a very unique piece of rotary history.  This car has all the bells and whistles not found on another rx7 of that year- a/c, cruise, glass and hardtop sunroof, special upholstery, power antenna and hatch release, aluminum alloy rims with matching spare, special Beat Black paint with red and silver pinstriping, not found on any other model of rx7.

This has been my restoration project for 10 years now. All the new items put on in the last few months include: paint job and pinstripes, upholstery and shifter boot, floor mats, windshield and Toyo tires with 70,000 mile rating.

Engine specs: Rebuilt 13b rotary engine (intake porting performed for better flow) with no more than 10,000 miles on it, Holley 650 cfm double pumper carb, jetted and adjusted by Racing Beat. Full custom exhaust from Racing Beat including headers. Clutch, master cylinder and related bearings replaced at same time. High performance spark plug wires and NGK plugs.

"Roxy" was my first car I purchased with my own money after high school, and has been such a fun car. I am the third owner and have continued to care for this gem in the same great way the previous owners have. Most services have been kept track of in a little note book by all previous owners. Original sales receipt, warranty info and poster advertisement is still with the car. I know it would be more valuable to have original engine in it, but the first owner burnt up the engine and replaced it with a different one. So I came across a 13b and thought why not?

This car wants to be revved. I've driven it very conservatively, but can't help to put a Mitsubishi eclipse, Acura TL and a Mustang GT in their place. I tried one high speed test after the engine was broke in, and I buried the 135 mph speedometer, so it hit at least 140. Cruising with the sunroof up, and your shades on while the sun sets, is an amazing experience.

Please contact me by e-mail for any questions what so ever. Locals are welcome to test drive the car. I will only accept cash, cashier check, PayPal payment. Local pick up only or buyer pays for shipping and I release the car after full payment has cleared.

Honda, Nissan and Mazda recalling 3 million vehicles for airbag inflators

Mon, 23 Jun 2014

Three million more vehicles can be added to the worldwide tally to be repaired for the faulty airbag inflators supplied by Takata. Honda, Nissan, and Mazda have all issued recalls to replace the bad part, including about 1.2 million of them in North America. NHTSA has been investigating all three companies, plus Chrysler and Toyota, for potentially affected vehicles.
Honda is recalling roughly 1.02 million Civic, CR-V, Odyssey and Element models In North America, built between April 2000 and October 2002. Mazda needs to repair 14,794 units of the RX-8 and Mazda6, and Nissan has 228,000 vehicles in North America to be fixed.
Chrysler is also starting what it calls a "regional field action" to replace the inflators in the 2006 Dodge Charger, according to a company spokesperson. The company says that it has not yet found the problem in any of its vehicles, but it's being done "out of an abundance of caution." The final number of Chargers affected will be announced later this week.

Consumer Reports says infotainment systems 'growing first-year reliability plague'

Mon, 27 Oct 2014

The Consumer Reports Annual Auto Reliability Survey (right) is out, and the top two spots look much the same as last year's list with Lexus and Toyota in first and second place, respectively. However, there are some major shakeups for 2014, with Acura plunging eight spots from third in 2013 to 11th this year, and Mazda replaces it on the lowest step of the podium. Honda and Audi round out the top five. This year's list includes six Japanese brands in the top 10, two Europeans, one America and one Korean.
Acura isn't the only one taking a tumble, though. Infiniti is the biggest loser this year by dropping 14 spots to 20th place. Other big losses come from Mercedes-Benz with an 11-place fall to 24th, and GMC, which declines 10 positions to 19th.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, it's not traditional mechanical bugs hauling down these automaker's reliability scores. Instead, pesky problems with infotainment systems are taking a series toll on the rankings. According to Consumer Reports, complaints about "in-car electronics" were the most grumbled about element in new cars. Problem areas included things like unresponsive touchscreens, issues pairing phones and multi-use controllers that refused to work right.

2014 Mazda6 i-Eloop to net 40 mpg hwy, 28 mpg city

Fri, 05 Jul 2013

Even before Mazda unveiled the 2014 Mazda6, it had introduced its innovative, non-hybrid i-Eloop (Intelligent Energy Loop) brake regeneration system. This technology converts kinetic energy into usable electricity using the alternator, a DC/DC converter and a capacitor mounted just behind the front fascia. During deceleration, the alternator captures energy that is then stored in the capacitor, which can later be used to directly power electric devices like climate control and audio systems. When i-Eloop power is used, it reduces the load on the engine and helps to conserve fuel.
Now available on the Mazda6, i-Eloop is only available on the $29,695 Grand Touring trim level as a part of the $2,080 GT Technology Package, meaning that buyers desiring i-Eloop will have to spend at least $31,775 (not including destination). The added price of this technology should be worth it for those looking for optimal fuel economy as the i-Eloop, combined with the package's active grille shutters, will bump the sedan's fuel economy numbers up to 28 miles per gallon city and 40 mpg highway - both are improvements of 2 mpg over the standard Mazda6 Grand Touring. The GT Technology Package also includes a Sport mode, lane departure warning, high beam control, radar cruise control and forward obstruction warning - the latter two technologies are currently offered in a $900 package that is being discontinued.
i-Eloop will eventually be offered on other Mazda products including the 2014 Mazda3. Scroll down for the official press release on the Mazda6's fuel-saving i-Eloop technology.
