Saving an FD RX-7 from 12 years in a garage!
It’s a crisp, late summer night in Utah. Beverages are flowing. Things are getting grilled. Anyone who’s into cars, is doing the things that people who are into cars do: they stand by the garage looking at cars that aren’t moving. And so began this strange tale of Ron convincing his Utah friend that a time capsule FD RX-7 deserves so much more than a life of musty garage smells.

Big shout to our friends at Strasse Sport for the paint work on this thing!

    Someone prob wrecked that car and then put it in a garage. But looks like someone recently did all the bodywork and primed it, nice to get the car right before paint.

    I guess Californians are figuring out that ut has a lot of unexplored old sheds. You already wiped out Nevada and AZ of barn finds. Guess we're next.
