    That looks a nice installation and a lovely car.
    Do you know anything about the performance and handling ?
    Comparisons with the original rotary engine version would be interesting.

    I don't have any information on this car.
    The pictures are part of my collection of more than 9000 pictures.
    This car was the sale in the site:

    No, not really. RX-7s are among the best handling cars for the money in the world. Excellent suspension and weight balance. It's a shame that (especially in the 2nd gen) the gas milage was so bad, and there was little torque to be found anywhere in the rev range. The added weight of the Chevy 350 is not actually very much, and where it's located in that car, won't make much of a difference at all.

    Actually, never mind, you're right. Someone should've told the talented mechanic who built this that more power, more torque, and better efficiency is a "waste of an RX-7".

    Here's a couple more V8 RX-7s... the "Python" V8 kit in the first two photos is especially great, aside from the ugly headlight conversion

    Don't worry not all Kiwis are dickheads like that guy. Hes just a typical 13 year old boy racer wannabe who worships hot 4s, fast fours and performance car magazine.

    Hey, what's wrong with performance car magazines?
    Anyways, I don't really like this generation of RX-7's. I like the ones later, the latest models, like the one in the Fast and the Furious and of course the latest generation, the RX-8.
