The staff take up endurance racing with a bone stock Rx7 .... and the legend is born!

First review of the BAE turbocharged system ... and the ultimate stealth street fighter in the day when the brand new 1980 Mercedes Benz 380SEL V8 only produced 155 bhp!!!!

Thanks Ray, you're a true gentleman!

I'm happy to preserve these gems of history for posterity. I was just starting high school when this issue came out so I never read it until now. But I was at least old enough to experience how sensational the Fb was when it was new.

So you just hit the big 4-0 then I would assume. Its all downhill from there.

On here, age doesn't matter, its whats between the ears that counts.

Yeah, I appear to be the same age as j9fd3s and know nearly as much about rotaries as he does. Well, I know more about Nikkis and he knows more about factory EFI. Same difference. I also lived in CA when I first started school. However I was here in WA when Mt St Helens blew up. That was interesting. I actually heard it the morning it popped. Sounded like a very big M80 way off in the distance. Of course I was only like 4 or 5 years old and anything loud sounded like fireworks to me.
