But as with the horse, you're going to be left with the recreational part, which will probably be enjoyed by lots of people. If you think about it, a car is a much cheaper hobby than a horse. It doesn't require thousands of hours of care every year, doctors or even that much affection.
You don't need to wait until 2077 to enjoy an old car with the trapping of a modern one. You can already swap out the turbocharged rotors for an LS1 and have something that's powerful, easy to work on and quite fast. the RX-7 is 3/4 the size of a Corvette and quite light, so it's actually ideal for an engine swap.
We've always thought that every car with pop-up headlights is worth saving, especially if you could make them 3D and cool, like the ones Brad Builds envisioned for his widebody RX-7. The car has multiple iterations but always feels like it's over-the-top in a good way.
There's no shortage of RX-7 body kits out there, but only a few of them are in this style. We also like how Brad kept things classy, not brightly colored like most of the movie-going versions of this car. Still, this look isn't for everybody, not even the Wankel fans.

RX-7 BB V2.0! Thinking we need some BIG wing to match the rest of the aggressive parts. . . The absolutely gorgeous wheels are R5445 AP3X by @1221wheels. I actually got the pleasure of touring their manufacturing facility the other day. Just so happened to be 30 minutes from where I live , SO COOL seeing how all these wheels get made. . . Thanks again @cornygti and @1221wheels for the tour!
