    12A I take it? Hopefully you don't do an apex seal like most rotaries seem to do. The japanese did make some nice cars in the 80's I myself own an r32 gts4 4 door.

    2 seaters have never sold well in Australia, so no matter how useless, sports cars almost always have a back seat. The 240Z was always a 2+2 as well.

    Nope, full series 3 mechanicals including a 13B. Goes like stink and sounds awesome.

    I really like the Skylines - have you ever put up any pics here ?

    Thanks for the nice comments guys. I think my wife even likes it. My son thinks it is cool and I have to drive him to school in it tomorrow.

    I cleaned it tonight. The inside is pretty much intact, but I don't think it has ever been vaccumed, so that has taken some effort. The outside is amazing. The last owner had it resprayed not that long ago and there are no dints, scratches or rust other than the bottom of the doors.

    I'll get some photos up once I have finished cleaning it up. I might get some minilites for it and spray the rear valance under the bumper white, but otherwise it will stay stock for as long as I can keep my mate's hands off it.

    Congrats Isszy. That's a pretty impressive looking example, especially for $1000! With Series 3 running gear it's an absolute bargain!

    P.S. In the 4th pic it looks like it would fit under the deck. Any plans for a bat cave?

    Under the deck is planned to be the new home, but the camper trailer is a bit long. I am going to try it on a set of ramps to clear the drawbar so I can get it a bit further back. The Gemini would have been a bit shorter and would have fitted...

    That RX-7 is great, Isszy! My dad had a black one when I was in Jr. High school...I can't remember if it was a 79 or an 81. I LOVED riding in that car! Very stable car...he had a blowout once at highway speeds and it just smoothly went over to the side of the road with no drama. Great find!
