3-rotor NA Mazda RX-7 FB

There are a number of random-looking letters in that post title, so allow me to explain: the first iteration of the Mazda RX-7 (the mkI, if you will) was designated 'FB'. It was available with a choice of engines, called either 12A or 13B - both of which were rotary units with twin-rotors. The RX-7 we see here has had a heart transplant, receiving the triple-rotor 20B engine from a Mazda Eunos Cosmo; in the Cosmo it would have been twin-turbocharged, but here it's been converted to be naturally-aspirated, hence 'NA'. Clear?

So, basically, it's a kickass RX-7 with a big-ass engine. Sorry, I should have just said that to begin with.

The things I would do to get my hands on one of these... everything about this car is perfect.
