Neat - never seen a 929L before. Great car. I have a '85 Rx-7 GSL - not sure if its considered an old timer yet.

Here in Germany we call it "Youngimer". Oldtimers are when they are 30years old, youngtimers they are when they are 20years old... :rolleyes:

G'day there, this is a car that was my pride and joy until it was stolen and trashed :grr: I can be relaxed in the belief that what goes around comes around, so the bastards who stole it will get what's coming to them, if they haven't already :devil:

Anyway, it's a '78 121L and I bought it stock back in late '84, but it didn't stay that way for too long. It was '95 that it got wrecked, so I got plenty of enjoyment out of it for quite a while, although I'd still have it today if it didn't get flogged.

I swapped out the standard boat anchor of a 4 cylinder and sludge box 3 speed auto for a Leyland 4.4 litre P76 all alloy V8 and a Toyota Celica cast iron 5 speed manual and then fitted a Borg-Warner 2.92:1 LSD. What a sweet ride, it drove like a dream, a placid ***** or a wild beast. It was certainly a sleeper and with the power-to-weight ratio could just about blow the doors off anything on the road without even trying.

I dropped the springs 2" in the front and 1.25" in the rear. The wheels were Simmons B45s 16x7 on the front and 16x8 on the rear shod with 225/50-16 & 245/45-16 respectively and they didn't scrub the guards at all. The interior was completely replaced with a custom retrim befitting the style of the car with a pair of Australian made Stratos sports seats up front with a leather bound sports steering wheel. The dash was restored and recoloured to replace th horrid baby sh*t green and the rest of the plastic was also coloure-coded to suit. The pics below show the interior, which I still have if someone is interested (the colour mismatch in the door trims is just where I stitched the images together)

**** I miss that car :byebye:
