Thanks again Ron..

By the way, do you have any articles or advertisements for the rear hatch carpet sets? I think Mazdatrix used to sell them. Basically just like the front carpets, with the rubber backing and all, but for the rear hatch. I think some were even embroidered with "RX-7" on them. Also the rear hatch Covers, for the "trunk" area?

I might be remembering them wrong. It's been a lonnnnng while...

I found this from Style Marque in the June 85 issue. They sold replacement front and rear mats with custom inserts and embroidery. I think the trunk cover came out with the 2nd gens. I see a lot of ads for them from 86 on. Not sure if they made one for the 1st gen.

This is a 23 year old magazine. Don't waste your time calling.

Absolutely archive worthy.

We should host each article (the pics) in different threads - in case his site ever goes down.

Also, quicker to browse through.

Thanks Ron, but I don't think that was it. I remember it was a set
of Front Carpets, with a matching rear hatch carpet. Although the
ad you posted says it offers a rear deck mat, the advertisement I remember had a picture of it.

And No, I wouldn't call a company that closed many years ago, LOL.
What I wanted was a nice picture to be able to show any local
company that does auto interiors.

I'll keep looking. I knew you wouldn't call, but every time I mention these somebody says they called and couldn't get an answer.

Anyone wants to grab these and put them on your website, feel free.

For the SA owners, the first issue. (50 mb)

This hasn't been to the top in a while. Thought there are enough new guys who haven't seen these. Don't miss the link to the entire first issue down a couple posts.

Back in the 80s to early 90s there was a company in California called Rotary Engineering. Does anyone know if Rotary Engineering is still in business?

Not in business anymore. I got my exhaust and dual facet fuel pump setup from them in the early 90s.

rotary engineering

I wanted to speak up now and we can check on the facts but I believe that Rotary Engineering was Nick's from the current Fast Freddies business that Nick still owns. When I was there, he showed me some of his prior rotary improvements that were R.E. stuff, and stated that the demand was too low now to warrant production of his prior products, though he still has some pieces left. I will check.

i love this historic stuff.

not trying to be contrary, but i've called up shops like that have had stuff sitting on their shelf for 20 years but they never bothered to trash, and they're more than happy to get rid of it

so you never know ...
