I'm pretty sure I actually owned a few more rx7's but just for parts or short periods of time.

On a side note..... Mazda is developing the next rotary engine --16X
Rumor of a "next" RX7 based off the MX-5 platform but with a 300+ HP rotary in it..

Gr8 to see another RX7 fan. Before I got my 1st bimmer in 1999, I had:
1987 dark metallic blue RX7 (kept it for 18 years)
1985 metallic silver/gray RX7
1983 canary yellow RX7
1979 lime green RX7
...lots of others.

1/11-current 2011 135i [first new car]
In about 6 hours, it will be 11.

The G and E are forsale. I have a $50k offer on the G. That thing hold value so much better than my E60 M5.

The 135i will most likely go soon.

We do have big family. As both my parent drives too. We have 5 drivers. So not too bad.
