So I love RX7..and I jumped on owning a FD3S 1993 low miles clean title sex machine! which took a crappy ass turn for the worse





This is what I THOUGHT I was buying
but thats not how it turned out, I paid a guy in AZ to build this car for me so he pulled the motor out and to build the other motor i bought..i paid 4 grand for this car and spent a total of 13gs to make this monster 500whp weekend sexy mobile...after a year of dumping money that should had went into my is300 , ive got a shell which has been beatin up after these pics, half a motor since the rest of it seemed to have disappeared, and a tranny in my truck...more to come if i dont end up in jail over this

I'm sure you thought hey, even if it was a little more beat than expected that's still a steal... but I'm sorry to hear about the lying asshole. Did you pick it up locally? I'm curious how the seller got away with it.. at least so far.

I guess some positivity, that's an amazing car for what you've turned it into and any FD RX-7's around here are asking 15k+ for half the power and work you put into yours. What motor did you go with?

My bad, I misread and thought you bought it then had it fixed up by someone else that got it up and running.. good luck in getting what you can back and I hope that guy gets what he deserves. I'm surprised what's left of the car even made it to you.

I was really close to trading my IS for an RX7 twice, I love those cars.

Any updates on this? I'm sorry for your terrible experience, I hope he gets what's coming to him for trashing the car the way he did. Yikes.

okay so hold on.. you bought this FD (which was running at the time of purchase) for 4G's.. which is an awsome deal.. and then you sent it off to some guy with 13G's and he basically demolished it...?? am i getting this right?

what were you thinking man damn...

anyway, i hope things turn out for the best for the car and you can recover your demolished missing pieces

and to boot there are some good rotary shops out west that would have surely givin you great service
