Language!: Bad @$$ Mazda Powered GT-40 Kit Car

I've been really blessed in my life, so I try really hard not to make fun of others who maybe haven't been.  But sometimes a tipper sends something in that presents so much gold that it makes it really hard.  Find this "Bad @$$ little kit Car custom GT-40 w/mazda RX-7" for sale in Vancouver, WA for $6,500 via craigslist.  Tip from Rock On!

I'm sure there is stuff I do that others would get a big laugh out of.  So, I will just reproduce some parts of the ad and not add any editorializing in hopes that we will be laughing with the seller and not at the seller while they list the car's virtues:

"I have a 1972 GT-40 first let me say this is not some some poorly built kit car. This car is very very sharp. Now take a look at the pics this car has beautiful lines."

"The B13 (13B rotary I assume) runs good and was pretty fast. It has been garaged most of its life. I haven't driven it in a couple years."

More virtues:

"This car has power windows.decent but outdated stereo wipers work heater works good, lights work, has full tuck and roll black interior."

I'm not sure what outdated stereo wipers are, but they do work!  Unfortunately the seller didn't include any interior pics of the tuck & roll interior.

However, all is not rosy in Mazda-land:

"...there are a couple of small issue with this car one is the car wont go into gear when the engine is running but shifts smoothly when the engine is off, i'm told this is common in mazdas if they are left sitting for a while. also the power windows are moving very slowly. I lost the oregon title after a move it was titled as a ford gt."

  1. I know I've seen that parking brake somewhere before.....

  2. I just became so appreciative of my neighbors

  3. I've got a low cost mod that should improve both braking and acceleration:

    Just remove floorboard on the driver's side.

    Want to double both stopping power *and* acceleration?

    Remove the passenger side floorboard, too.

    Easy peasy.

    -Stan (who thinks this mod would be worth changing the title from "GT 40" to "Flintstone Mobile")

  4. Shifts good with the engine off, nice feature.

    1. All Mazda's apparently do this when they sit. Ha.

  5. I like the Stereo wipers also so are they slapping time ?

  6. Who made the Kit ? VW pan or ? Interior Shot ?

  7. I shudder thinking about what's under that cover

  8. Are you Guys selling your mustang. the one in the third picture in the background
