The Replacement

Well it didn’t take me too long to find a replacement for the Miata. In my head I was juggling several ideas and in the end it came down to either finding an AP1 since I was having an urge for more track time, waiting for the release of the FR-S since it seems like it would make a great drift and daily car, or this one specific FC. Very different price ranges and what ever I chose would dictate the kind of driving I plan on doing well into the future.

I chose the FC. My brain told me one way, my heart told me FC. The way I feel when I see a properly built RX7 rolling past into the dark of night just gives me this feeling that an AP1 or FR-S could never give. Its an aura that I cant explain.

A little bit of history behind this particular car. This car was Robs dad’s FC. The same Rob I bought my Miata from. Back then, I originally had contacted Rob about buying the FC, and after a somewhat jokingly comment of him saying why dont you buy my Miata, that turned into me buying the Miata instead of this FC.

This RX7 is a 1988 S4 TII, Black, and the best part, only 46,000 miles! The car is immaculate inside and out and practically show room clean! I almost feel bad knowing that I will be turning it into a drift car when I feel like it should be sitting in a museum or something. This decision to purchase the FC felt almost impulsive on my end, but after driving it home today, I know I made the right choice. FC’s are by far my favorite late 80’s sports car. The body lines just simply cannot be beat! It is 100% bone stock minus RacingBeat exhaust and STANCE coilovers. It also came with some other goodies like a turbo timer, Kouki tails and Kouki moldings in box, JDM window visors, a full shop manual, as well as other misc goodies. Not to mention Rob’s Dad gave me a price I couldn’t refuse.

I have some long term plans and some short term plans for it but I’ll share that at a later date. Regardless, I should be out this season doing what I love to do! DRIVE!
