V8 Powered: 1989 Mazda RX-7 Convertible

The Mazda RX-7 is a regular recipient of small block chevy power infusion -- certainly not because the wankel is an inherently unreliable piece of machinery, but probably because it has a decent engine bay size and a chassis that can handle.  Find this 1989 Mazda RX-7 offered for $4999 near Tucson, AZ via craigslist.  Tip from Rock On!

  2. I know it's petty but I can't get past the hood scoop. There wasn't even a clearance issue

    1. I thought the same thing. Hopefully it's just a stick-on Pep Boys special that is easily removed

  3. Kinda looks like it has a third pedal but surely has a slushbox stick... What the hell!
