ah I see.

I got rid of my car because I couldn't afford to pay the gas and my car had way too many problems.

oil leaks, wiring problems, etc... so many things to fix.

I miss my FD so I am kind of planning to buy an FD again. (in good condition this time of course) or Supra or NSX, I don't know.
It won't happen for a while though. I need money for school and stuff.

I'm driving an RSX right now, bought it brand new so I don't have to worry about fixing it.

God...an RSX is ridiculously boring car to drive. I like it because it is good on gas, but it isn't fun to drive.

no, not a Type-S...I bought a Premium.

Type-S would be a waste of money since it's only an RSX and I was looking for something cheap on gas and reliable.

oh in your criteria, you might wanna buy a 350Z?
Greddy has a TwinTurbo kit for it.

also S2000 would be ok too.

350z or domestic is about your only choices in that range, man.

i'd pickup a older car and fix er up a bit, rock that and still have the RWD fun you need.

ok well what kind of domestics though?

Corvette and Viper are way too expensive.

Mustang is not rare at all.

oh wait, is Corvette cheaper than a S2000 and 350Z?

I know Z06 is expensive but I don't know? I think the base model Corvette is like $60,000 to $70,000 or so?

just curious if anyone here with a first gen rx7 has any expierence with fender flares, I'm looking to restore my rx7, but the rear fenders are fairly rusted, cant really weld, but i can fibre-glass, so I'm looking for any universal or any kind of fender that'll work with the rx's fenders and give me roughly a 1-2 inch lip, just so i can cut out the rust, not really worryin' about patching it with steel, just covering over it with the flare, then mold it to the body via fibre-glass.

cpracing has flares, but good luck ever recieving them i also hear they are a shitty fit.

best to retro-fit some VW jetta (i think) flares to the FB. search on rx7club, theres plenty of threads on fender flares. do you want to fit bigger wheels? cause having flares but stock wheels is gonna look pretty bad.
