Advantages: Looked cool
Disadvantages: Very expensive to run
I know nothing about the machinations of the car engine, I just go on what it looks like, how it drives and how fast it goes!
The Mazda RX7 I drove did not belong to me, but I was allowed to drive it. Imported from Japan, this little baby could shift.
Purchased by an American with a penchant for all things English, the car had manual drive, sat about 6 inches off the floor, and it went very fast!
The car took corners as if it was on wheels, but the small steering wheel did make driving a little uncomfortable.
This car looked hot, but cost quite a lot in fuel, even back when fuel was really cheap in the States, especially when you were hammering it down the freeway, over 3000 revs, which you are not allowed to do.
With parts having to be shipped from Japan, this little car could cost a lot of money, but who cares, it wasn't mine!
