    Hopefully it does. I'll buy it at that...

    That's actually Harmo's old car. His and my RX-7's were built side by side in his garage at Lurnea. Rev Doctor did most of the engineering on Harmo's car and helped me out with set up etc but i had half the budget Pete did. That car (now Joey's) has probably had close to 150k tipped into it over the years...

    Funnily enough Joey also owned my old RX-7 for a brief time too after the guy who bought it from me had fucked it. It just worked out cheaper to sell mine again and buy Harmo's than upgrade mine to the same spec...

    The bloke who drove mine onto the trailer (Josh C) for pickup would easily slot mine into the Top 10, maybe even Top 5. It was 15k with a trailer. Matty Boylan's car went for 19k with a spare built engine and a much better cage and set up than mine.

    The days of a 25k Pulsar probably aren't far off though... but hey, in 2001 I paid $2500 for a very very basic 12a IPRA RX-7. Then sunk another 50k into over the next 4 or 5 years. Got it to Top 5 spec in NSW, maybe Top 10 nationally. And sold it for 23k....
    Shoudl have held on to it. Hopefully Joseph's car doesnt sell that cheap!
