Some good ones come up in the USA on from time to time. Worth the shipping fees for a sound car. Phil

Phil, im pretty sure your 929 coupe was the one i came to look at :)  I believe you had a a dozen or so NSU ro80\'s and 2 cosmos, one being a mazda press car??? i think... and from memory you were driving a lhd renault savana estate when i came and looked at it! May be mistaken but it was 8 years ago! :driving

Aha! that would have been me then, was a lhd renault 25 so you\'re not far off! I\'d like to know what became of that 929 :)

i know, it really irritates me when people list cars on ebay with no pictures and next to no information!

I reckon you got a bargain there to be honest, RX4 or not. We had a 929 Coupe (might be the one mentioned earlier) which I had always intended to fit a rotary into. For whatever reason we sold it which I kind of regret now. But I do have a genuine RX4 Coupe which needs restoring, it\'s a late model japanese import, with a 13B and auto box. Hope to make a start on it once my barn is built. Phil

My neighbours have a blue bugeye which they race, often comes charging past my house. Would be great if that were a Rotary!
Great Project :)

When I saw this I couldn\'t work out which U.K. Cosmo this could be, as I thought I knew all of them. Looking at the pictures it is in a very stereotypical looking japanese garage, also the boxes at the back have japanese writing on them. Anyway i\'ve just phoned the dealer who\'s a very nice chap and had quite a long chat. It is indeed a japanese car, which belonged to a japanese friend of his fathers. So it\'s been sold to a collector of Japanese cars in Switzerland and will be shipped from Japan to there. So we haven\'t lost one after all:Thumbs-up So that leaves 4 in the U.K. that I know about. I have two (one good one bad) Carl Hayward has one (unless he\'s sold it?) and there\'s a lady that owns one.

you\'re a brave man!

Hi Shaun, it\'s a dual setup. 50l tank in the boot. The reduction in boot space has not really caused an issue. Around 150 miles to a tank which means frequent refills but at around £30 to fill it\'s not a bad saving.


That Wankel Spider is one of a few which have been converted to right hand drive over here. Sadly this devalues them as the best prices are fetched in Germany!

I personally have driven a R080 sedan, and they really are a heap of .... :Giggle

In what respect are they a heap of?

Our RX8 has been running on gas since 57000 miles, now has 94000 on it with no issues. Did a comp test at the weekend and all looks good. It covered 35000 miles last year so was a cost effective move! It uses an egas 8 cylinder kit and a modified ECU. Phil
