    Default update on my jobless elantra scenario

    so a few interviews later, still jobless, currently looking for cars to replace the elantra with. was talking to a friend of mine who i use to work with yesterday, and hes said hed be willing to sell me his first gen rx7, for only 1200. i know this car has been babied beyond all babies by him and his dad, only problem its ever had was it needed a new clutch/slave cylinder, that was taken care of months ago. theres no real cosmetic flaws either, other then some paint chipping from the little plastic things around the windows, and a cracked tail light housing. for 1200 i think its probaly going to be my only choice of vehicle, and ive been looking around all month for **** cheap cars i wouldnt dare to drive. heres a pic of the car as well, i think the only thing his dad did to it was 3" full exhaust, bridge ported, im not sure if he has a different carb or not

    the black one. interior is stock btw, no pics of interior, just has a different steering wheel.

    im sure i don't know as much about these as others, but it sounds like a deal to me.. and im sure an rx7 would be 10 tons of fun. i duno what all the specs are but some random guesses and it looks like thats below most sales and below BB. so seems sweet to me

    50:50 power to weight ratio :p ive been reading a lot about rotaries lately, and a single bridgeport cant take teh stock baseline up to 180bhp easy with a simple carb upgrade. ive also read brigheporting isnt so good on the DDing side lol.

    First, buy stock in oil companies. Then buy RX. At least thjat way you can get back a little of what you spend. Between gas and oil, you'll make them rich singlehandedly.

    So you're saying that the 2300 pound car has 2300 horsepower? Or are you saying that the car only weighs 100 pounds?

    first gen rx-7 motors (and almost all rotaries before the RX-8) are known to be almost grenade-like. buy with caution. for a DD, i'd personally stick with the XD.

    i think (hope) he means 50:50 weight DISTRIBUTION. which is probably closer to 47/53


    not even an elise has a 50/50 power-weight ratio. at best their 1:12 hp/lb

    if you want another car that'll eat more gas, and cost more to maintain, but add pussy into the mix, i'll sell you my Z. its engine blows up about 25% less often than mazda rotaries, but gets women wet 2500% more often.

    Kids.... cars do not get pussy. Ever. If you're that stupid/retarded/naive then waste your money on it to get chicks.

    Rotaries EAT oil and gas. They also blow apex seals with age, lose compressions and like to self destruct. I don't care how well you maintain it, a lit piece of dynamite is still going to blow up.

    I'd say no on the rx-7 btw those are more like project cars and they make really good ones

    I still think you have the totally wrong approach with this one, but one needs to do what makes them happy, so go for it.
