Really rare! Let me break this down really quick... Ever heard of the rare 100 GTUs rx7s? Only 40 have ever been claimed and only 11 are confirmed at the time of this posting! Here are the rarest rx7 FC3S models: 1500 10AE Turbo models 1400 infini 1000 winning limited 150 final edition convertible 100 GTUs... out of that 100: 83 red on black 10 black on black 7 white on blue There was only 100 GTUs models created between 1989 and 1991. If you own one of these rare models sign your car up to the registry list here on any of the rotary forums! There are rumors about a restamped GTUs model... The entire origins GTUs owners thread on the rx7club was modified, icemarks claims deleted, registry list changed to have a confirmed section and the mods agree there are not enough GTUs models to have the restamped.

    Hey Moog, Marty..... Please, please, please do a collab video with linus tech tips, they could build a sick gaming rig inside a miura or something, maybe real time control of the ecu, change boost etc, just shooting ideas across, you modify the car, they hook up the pc, it can be like a 10 part series or something, I posted the same thing on their latest video..... Linus has mentioned you guys before in one of his sleeper build pc's...... would be a really cool collab

    Who knew the E30 had a V8 option, and people think only the E92 had a V8 in it. That right there Australia is the sound of F R E E D O M! What do V8 people eat: the ground meat patties of their enemies faces made into burgers. Cow meat will do though. Think upscale burger joint because it's a BMW shell after all but, it's got a hooligan American engine in it = upscale burger joint.

    I dislike that you put an ls in it, nothing against the ls its a great engine, both affordable and reliable but i was kinda hoping for something bmw, s50, s52, s54 or s65. my friend even put an s85 in one of these, granted there was alot of fabrication work for that. anyways i like the build but would have loved to see a bmw motor in it.
