1987 Mazda RX-7 GXL - Family Owned Since New
On February 27, 1987, Robert Carl Hoffman of Jenison, MI purchased this car new at Borgman Mazda, Inc. Mr. Hoffman was a BMW mechanic by trade and a raced old MG's on the weekends, yet chose this Mazda as his "leisure driver." He was a avid member of the Sports Car Club of America and worked his way up to a racing official for road rallies. Unfortunately, a brain tumor took his life in 1997. His father took possession of the vehicle until he passed in 2010. Today, Robert's sister owns the vehicle and has decided someone else should enjoy the car as Robert did years ago.
From the factory, the car was finished in Royal Maroon Metallic with an upgraded factory Leather Package interior. It is powered by Mazda's legendary 1.3L/146hp Rotary engine mated to a 5-Speed gearbox. These are quick and nimble cars that are a blast to drive. This car has power steering, power windows, cruise control, pop-up headlights, AC, and upgraded plush floor mats and center arm rest. It has just been fully serviced with a new battery, oil change, air filter, clutch slave cylinder and master cylinder. Turn-key and ready to go for its new owner.
The car comes with the original window sticker, original books, original owners manual, and original warranty booklet. Clean CarFax, no accidents, non-smoker. This is an awesome RX-7 with all ownership history and 65k original miles. A great classic example at a very reasonable asking price.

Lito Pejoro and his car were older than most at RADwood Las Vegas, but they had a story to share
The Pick of the Day is a pristine early-model survivor
Pick of the Day has been driven only in summer, and only 5,600 miles
Some models from the film will fetch top dollar, but without modifications
The Pick of the Day is a rare unmolested 1993 Mazda RX-7 with just 37,000 miles on ist odometer
Although the Mazda RX-7 has never hit its stride as a collector car, enthusiasts know it as an innovative sports car powered by a tiny-yet-powerful rotary engine
There are a few Japanese cars that changed the way we think about small sports cars. The first was the Datsun 240Z, the car that hurried along the demise of the British and Italian sports car brands.
Mazda will show five historic vehicles alongside two 2016 models at the 11th annual Japanese Classic Car Show this weekend in Long Beach, California.
Eighteen of the greatest Japanese sports cars will be on display at the Simeone Automotive Museum in Philadelphia as part of a special exhibit, the Best of Japan.
