Anybody Know Anything About This Car?

Seems like a horrible waste if the car is just sitting outside. Looks like rust around the sunroof opening.

If its a real shot, somebody should go and save this poor thing as it looks to have a shop name on the side in Texas.

I wonder how much.hmmm just a display but still

Look what someone found in a RX graveyard! What would you do?

From Bryan Smith who pushed it around for years....

"4000lbs of steel & Bondo, this was a display Mazda built to pass around the dealerships to generate enthusiasm for the RX-7, (looks like it still works) was last displayed at the Texaco Grand Prix of Houston the late 90's, we had it displayed at Maz-Max until 2009 when it was sold on eBay, the car is so heavy, and the tire/ wheel offset is so huge, anything over 20mph caused the suspension to shake so hard you could not hold on to the steering wheel, it could never be made road worthy, but obviously looks really cool..."

Yeah, I remember seeing the thing sitting out at Maz-Max for a while here in Houston. I always wondered what they did with it.
