according to DVLA the mot ran out in 2008 so it's been off the road for 10 yrs, not 7.

Autotrader Dec 2007 £995. Pistonheads were rude about it. 'Shed of the Week'. Seemed unfair at the time.

Good memory!! W(p. Had to go and look it out... And I think the rx8 Had just come out around 2007 so there's not as much rotary love/knowledge on pistonheads this year, and the comments show it.

yay I'm pleased to report that C999 EWN that I mentioned a few pages back has just arrived with a rotorhead friend of mine in Wiltshire :) He currently owns a track focussed FD and a unique, home built Westfield with an RX-8 engine. He's no stranger to Mazda rotaries, having had a few RX-8's too.

Why did he reject £5600 and then sell it for £4600 when it was relisted
Because it was not a real bid
Back on Ebay for £5950

Having some weird problems with the forum this morning. Attachments aren't working as they should. This pic of Eunos should be in my last post in this topic...

If he does even half a good a job as his recent restore of an old Eunos (Mech work, welding and spray work) then this new acquisition will be a gem :D
