While Im honored someone thought my truck was worthy I had to vote for RotaryFevers rx2. I love that color blue and besides the d.s. mirror looks happy! Close second for the SA (which I didnt even see as an option when I voted)...

That is a nice blue but REPUs are in a league of their own...a cooler chevy luv full of angry Bees in the engine bay. Glad to see so many people voting, this is going to be a good month...we've got one of everything, almost.

Had to vote for ProxyOne's RX-2 since it looks like my first car a '73 Mazda RX-2! Mine was the same orange but w/ a roll cage, black racing seats, racing beat manafold, holly 390 cfm carb, racing headers...my uncle campaigned it rally racing in the '70s. I restored it to a "street legal" car in the '80s while in high school...cops clocked me at 160 mph on the highway. Loved that car! Need to find some pics to scan in...

Had to go for the SA. Looks like my Dad's car on steroids.

RotaryFever's 1973 RX-2, Gets my vote! VERY NICE

I would've entered my Savanna again but I haven't done anything major to it since last year.
"Please nominate your favorite Old School ride...anything pre 79." was posted by Gravity Fed in July 2009 ROTM NOMINATIONS thread.
Why is the SA RX-7 in this old-school vote off? :confused: The SA RX-7's have their own months Feb & Aug.

07-29-2009, 02:27 AM
man, should have entered it anyways, another clean RX-3 never hurts.

As far as the SA, you're right, they do have another month...I took that guideline as '79 or earlier and Synco's is a 79 I figured it could be included.

Wait till next year...we gotta figure out what battles you all wanna see.

Too bad Charlie RX3 didn't post his car. I just saw some pics of it in the photo section and it is inmaculate. Congrats to the winner, he got my vote.
