Thank you to all who expressed an interest in my car. It has been sold to someone who will care for it as I did. Thank you again to all of you. I will be closing this ad within the week, but I wanted to let everyone know I appreciated your kind inquiries.
1981 Mazda RX& GS
All of the above is the original equipment. This car has not be altered. Items like brakes, tires, etc. have been replaced over the years.
I am the only owner of this car. I have all of the original receipts for the purchase of the car and all of the parts and repairs, owner's manuals, and even the original dealer brochure where the color of this car was the brochure front cover. They are organized in a notebook. All of it will come with the car. Everything is original; the paint, seats, carpets, headliner, etc. The car has never been left in the open without a cover, not even for 1 hour! In fact, the car is even covered in the garage! No rust, no dents, dings, etc. There is not even a door ding where someone opened their door or pushed a cart in to the car. It is completely dingless. It took a lot of time and effort to keep the car scratch and ding free all these years, but I have enjoyed and driven the car. There are a couple of small areas of which I have taken a picture of. Less than a pin dot big, but I want to show all about the car. The car has been meticulously maintained both inside and out. The engine was completely gone through when there was 149373 miles on the car.
The engine, drive train, and suspension was inspected and necessary repairs made in 2015 by RX for your 7, which is a Mazda auto shop here in Tucson that only works on Mazda rotary. The mileage was 151079 at that time. The owner has worked on Mazdas for over 30 years. He works on both Rotary Response Racing and 'special cared for' Mazdas (mine being one of the lucky ones!). He is well known with Mazda aficionados.
There is nothing bad to say about the car. It likes to be driven and it starts and runs like it did when it was new. It has a choke that works as it should. This car has been taken care of by a fanatic...me!
Poeple ask me things like; when did you get it painted, when were the seats redone,etc. They are stunned when I tell them it is all original. I have never seen a Mazda RX7 as nice as this one.
If you are interested I am willing to take videos of the car or additonal pictures, as well as pictures of receipts. When I take it for a drive people stop and talk to me about it, give me the thumbs up signs, etc. It is a lot of fun to drive. A lot of people tell me they owned one and wish they never sold it. I am sure I will miss this car because it has been part of my life for so long, but I am getting older and giving up some of the things I own in an effort to retire soon. I really hate to sell the car, but it is just time to do so. I am hoping someone will love it as much as I do.
Over the years people have told me they have a 'like new' RX7, or they have never seen a car nicer than the one they have, their RX7 is 'sanitary', etc. When they see my car they are stunned that it is so much nicer than their car. I am sure there are cars out there as nice as this one, but I have never seen one. For a car that has been driven, it has had the best of care, and shows it!

In 1979, I brought a copy of Road & Track into a Mazda dealer and asked if they were expecting any of the new RX-7s; up until that point, I had only seen the car in magazines. I left that day with a contract to buy one of the first 13 that shipped to Minneapolis […]
In 1997 my Sister Yvonne passed away after a year long battle with lung cancer. I decided at the age of 41 that life was too short and I was going to do something for me. For years I had put off buying a sports car. Something always came up that was more important in […]
