Hi, I have always wanted a rx7 or 8. I finally got on. I am in the national guard and just returned from a overseas tour. When I got back my job I was working a year ago isn't there anymore so I had to keep money in the bank. I found a clean tittle 2004, 6-speed, dark grey, 117k miles for 2 grand. Thing is as a result of texting and driving the kid who owned it before me hit someone. It needs front fenders, front bumper, 1 headlight, coolant reservoir, and the driver and passenger airbags. I drove it for like 2 mins down the street and back runs/shifts good. The frame is straight but the subframe infront of the radiator is kind of munched but I bent back it into place just doesn't look pretty. Everything else is in good condition. I would just like to get some opinions from some experienced owners on if this was a bad buy or I made out ok? Will upload a pic when I get to my comp. Posting from phone.

Alright here are a few pics. I got a new hood and coolant reservior. I can't find a headlight cheap so that will have to wait till next paycheck. I changed the oil and started it up after some flooding issues last night, runs great.
Thank you, as soon as I get the the front bumper cover, headlight and passenger fender I can atleast bend it were everything will line up ok. I bought the car to drive it and the frame is straight. Eventually I want to weld on a whole salvaged front piece. I will probably wait for when I build the motor to do that. I have never touched a rotary but I use to work at the speedway in vegas so I have done alot of big project street/strip cars.
