My Mazda RX-7 - Reviewed

Let me know what you guys think! I personally think the guy did a really good job summarizing the car and dispelling a few of the rotary myths without getting too technical.

Roy brought his amazingly clean FD to the office the other day, I know of only three other near stock FD's  in the UK that are in this sort of showroom condition.

Roy knows that I was horrified to find he did not have a proper agreed valuation on the car, meaning the insurance company would probably pay out less than 10K on this 30K car should something horrible happen.

He also did not realise that by becoming a paying Full Club Member of Mazdarotaryclub that an insurance valuation becomes available if required.       
All the best Clive

When I have the pennies to buy an FD that's exactly what I want..... tastefully modernised, but not so you'd notice

Yep the agreed valuation is worth is weight
