The circle of life can be found everywhere, especially in the automotive world. The owner of this 1985 Mazda RX-7 doesn’t “have much time to enjoy it, and would like to free up garage space.” His listing of the Japanese coupe on eBay in search of someone who wants to give it a home begins the cycle anew.

For the past six years, it’s been owned and garage-kept by the seller, who hasn’t driven the 1.1-liter rotary-powered two-door in the winter. He’s also replaced many of the RX-7’s parts with OEM hardware. The owner says, “Original wheels are not currently on the car, but I do have them to go with it.”

Although the air conditioning needs recharging, the brown cloth interior is in almost mint condition. It’s slightly worn and is missing a small patch of door upholstery. The Light Beige “exterior is near mint except for minor dings” accumulated over the course of 84,350 miles.

If you know of a great, stylish car for sale and would like us to feature it, please let us know!

The first car I owned was an ’85 RX-7 GSL-SE – similar to this RX-7 but with the 135HP 13B fuel injected engine. I enjoyed that car very much (throttle steering was a blast) – along with learning to drive in my dad’s 1971 Datsun 510, my enthusiast roots were well-established by 1988.

Since then, in order:
’90 Civic Si, ’88 Mustang 5.0 sedan, ’88 MR2, ‘85.5 944, ’94 Integra GS-R, ’94 325is, ’04 RX-8, and my current 128i. Great cars, every one of them.
