Finally found a project?!

Hopefully that is.. I will be going to look at this beauty sometime soon

First off, its a 1984 Mazda RX-7 GS. Rotary Power











And the Money shot:


Thoughts? It runs and drives, but overheats due to a faulty thermostat which current owner is replacing before selling. Its a manual. Its rust free. He wants $600. He says hes just tired of working on it and wants a car he can drive fast right out of the box.

2008 Versa S:
-Throttle Controller
-DC Exhaust+Intake
-Strut brace+Sway bar
-Spec-V Wheels
-H&R Sport Springs
-Navi HU, Pioneer Spkrs, 2x10" CV Subs.

I'm really hoping I will be able to buy it. $600 is cheap. When I saw the pictures I was like, jeez, this guys gonna want at least $2500. No way I can buy it. Then he comes back with $600. I was like... "ummmm, do you mean 600, or 6000??" Its 600. Its a steal for a clean shell with a solid engine and transmission.
