If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
1988 Mazda RX-7 Convertible The Wankel engine is a type of internal combustion engine using an eccentric rotary design to convert pressure into rotating motion. All parts rotate consistently in one direction, as opposed to the common reciprocating piston engine, which has pistons violently changing direction. In contrast to the more common reciprocating pistons designs, the Wankel engine delivers advantages of simplicity, smoothness, compactness, high revolutions per minute, and a high power-to-weight ratio. This Mazda self-described heavy influence from the Porsche 944 for the body design car, only released 5,000 Cabriolet units to the USA. Seen here is Guards Red with gray leather interior, and excellent condition rear glass window convertible top, and a mere consigner stated 2,500 miles a year since birth. Exterior Nicely preserved Guards Red, straight gapped steel panels with matching crash bumpers, mirrors and badging (look ma no chrome!), are broken up by a black dent guard belt line running the circumference of the car. Top presents in very nice condition and gives the driver the option of a hardtop/soft top/targa/convertible. Seen is a glass back window in pristine condition with a rear defroster. Factory BBS Wheels with center locking hub appear factory! Very nice overall presentation for the total exterior. The exterior shows some signs of hail damage as shown in the pictures. Interior Gray leather with horizontal stitched tufting in the center with plain piped bolsters, and speaker inserted headrests wrap the Recaro buckets. These seats offer a sporty grab you but are very comfortable. Cracking of the seat leather is evident especially on the drivers seat. Door panels use the leather as well and show pioneer speakers for that added sound on the sides. A pioneer sound system sits in the center console and gives you the option to play cassettes, CDs, or an AM/FM radio. Enough buttons to keep a 747 pilot occupied. Light gray carpeting covers the floor and accents the door panels. Power windows, power top, and cruise control can be seen installed and working. Drivetrain The Wankel Rotary 13B (a mere 13ci!) produces 146HP which translates to 100MPH @ 3400RPM. Consigner states there is no real redline, but youll get a notice when you should shift at 7000RPM. Bolted to the rear of the mill is a 5-speed manual transmission. Seen on the good condition underside is 4-wheel steering, which makes cornering just a bit easier. Overall very nice condition RX-7, mechanically sound, cared for, and when you compare it to a 944, less than half the price. One might say more bang for your buck.
