Offer 3

My request for a bone stock FD finally led to this example. A 1994 stocker with high kilometers. I was intending on modifying most components so the low price for a near perfect car was ok.
Interior was unmarked except for the mounting of CD stacker in the rear. Remember those... very inconvenient.

16 inch stock rims with good rubber.
HKS super dragger exhaust. Looks huge!!!
Original engine... a little dirty. and the rear view was just as stock looking as the front.
Go Go !

1st FD Dreaming

Here are some thoughts for a black FD, After notification of a black car being purchased I was thinking of ideas for it. I settled on this C-West N1 design with ADVAN AVS 6 wheels in red blue or Bright Green.

The Front splitter from Asamoto's D1 FD was popular at this time so that would have made it onto the car also.

RE-Xtreme Offer

This is an auction picture of an FD I was offered. 650,000 yen. A bit more than I wanted to spend but it was pretty clean. I passed on this one.

RE-Xtreme False Start

This is the first FD I was offered and I did buy it, a 1992 Mazda RX-7 FD3S-100824. 587,000 yen for this beast was very cheap. It was later found to have bad compression but it got me thinking about a black car. Now I had to wait for a replacement.
