Awesome rx7

Post by Camaro5690 » Mon Mar 18, 2013 9:30 pm ... r_embedded

Im surprised that I havent seen an XR built in this fashion yet. After all they are cheap to buy, so it seems like someone would have done it.

Kind of cool, but many of the car's features, such as the multimeter fuel level gauge, could've been accomplished in a correct fashion with an equal or lesser amount of effort. It's like he went out of his way to half-ass it.

Here's a really cool RX7: ... ewall.html

I spent some time talking to the owner/builder at a car show last month - interesting guy, we shared a lot of common philosophies when it comes to custom cars.

In the vid, he pretty much SAYS he deliberately half-assed it..... I think that was part of the fun. :lol:
