You\'re welcome Diggers old boy.

I saw you coming through on another Forum as well, was it the same query?
I\'ll meet and greet you on there when you post.

Do you know how many are still on the road? My RX7 is a Mk1 Reg XLH ***X.
 
It won the Mazda 1st Generation prize at Rotorstock 2012. I am currently looking to sell it.

Hi mate,

I think your\'s is a blue 1st Gen, what we call a Series 2.

I\'ll check out some figures for you tomorrow. All data on my older computer which I need to fire up before I can check things.

Hi Again.

there\'s a Location List that I did for 1st Gen RX7\'s in the British Isles. Date Jan this year.

It has 193 Series 3 cars, 112 Series 2 like yours and 41 Series 1 cars.

It\'s a pdf file. I don\'t seem to have attachment or PM privileges on here any more so perhaps you want to view it on rx7 dot com forum where I mainly post to now.

Your car is in the Series 2 section at No. 108, in the \'unknown location\' part at the bottom. The next list will have XLH relocated to Cambs area.

To give an idea of 1st Gens on the road (running taxed or on track) work on about 1/3rd of the cars in the list. The other 2/3 cars are SORN, in barns, project cars etc. In other words off the road but with a chance of living again.

Hope that\'s all useful stuff.
