Get the Bosch or Hella H4 conversions. Like $60-70 and then you can run H4 bulbs.

thanks

There's several nice first gens, dude. If you just want a second car, I can't recommend a first gen enough.

Well, if they're well maintained, meaning lots of oil changes and abuse only when it's warm, you can see them easily get into the 180-200k range with really good compression still. 12As are just as bulletproof as 13Bs, if not more. NA rotaries will seriously last if you take care of them. Even if it hasn't been cared for perfectly, there are some tricks you can do to breathe life back into them that cost no more than $10 and a few days of your time.

I fully recommend a first gen if you're just getting a second car, d00d. They're lighter, cheaper and will be much more bang for the buck when modifying.

For example, this one is $500. With the remaining $1500 or so (if you're spending $2000ish) free up the exhaust, buy some decent tires and get some shocks/springs/sway bars, and you're ready to eat people for fucking breakfast at Autocross and generally have an insanely fun car. You see that goofy look on NanaimoRX-7's face, don't you? He's not as ugly as you think, that's just a weird euphoria he has because his car is so much fun.

http://www.bcrx7.com/modules.php?nam...ewtopic&t=5259

I don't see anything else on the first page of BCRX7 right now, but a beauty of an 84 GSL just went for 1200.

My advice? Buy a cheap first gen out of the buy and sell, if you can't get that one above. I bet you you can find at least a couple of cheap FBs on the island here. Don't worry too much about the engine. Unless the kms are extreme, just get it compression-tested and it will probably last as long as you need it to last. I mean, you're probably not going to piling miles on it for years anyway, right?

Well, today marks a day of new beginnings. New plans, new happiness. The 1990 NA is officially SOLD to that of Acal, the next BlackFC. Its done, its over. I hope it treats Aaron as well as it did me.

Goodbye Black Beast!

**sobs** As much as its nice to have the cash from that car and that you have the TII... I'm sure it still upset you to watch it drive out of your driveway... I bet you tears came to your eyes when you watched it disappear in the distance and you werent in it!!! At least you can still see it when acal has it tho!! Congrats Acal!!
