Just joined to learn more about rotary engines. I am looking for an RX2, but in no hurry. Trying to map what's around first. Why RX2? Most beautiful 70s car around in my humble opinion. Grew up in the backseat of a '71 capella and owned a '77 and a '78 capella in the late 80s. But this time it's RX2 time.

How common are they there? I would think that they would be rather hard to find in Europe.

1988 N/A SE model FC, dead stock and less than 85k on the clock. This one actually runs, so I don't fuck with it.

A grand total of 88 RX2s were sold in Norway, reputedly. 45 of these have been scrapped. I waiting to have those numbers confirmed, complete with exact number of cars on the road. In comparison, there are only two in the UK(!)

Wow! Thanks loads! Processing...

Good-looking project you've got there, too. Impressive work.

Been looking at this beauty, but at a stiff $15.000,- and too original for even mild mods...

Heh, heh. Things take time. Since last time I have become the owner of a shiny new RX2 Haynes manual and a 1985 RX7 FB GSL (US-version). Some progress made!
