About a decade and a half ago, my Uncle gave my dad an unregistered 1980 Mazda Rx7 with 60000 km. It had a stripped spark plug hole and an oil leak, so it just sat on our driveway. I grew up playing in it and wishing I could drive it. My dad didn't have much time, and eventually it came to be known as my car. One year ago, with some help from my dad and a buddy, I finally decided to fix it: Engine rebuild. New clutch. New shocks/springs/bushings with massive adjustable sway bars. Performance fuel pump, carburetor and exhaust. New brakes and brake hoses. New water pump. I've had every part of this car torn apart as far as it'll go. It's been a huge process, but three weeks ago I finally passed an out-of-province inspection and got it registered and insured! So if you're ever sleeping and hear a super loud lawn mower go by outside, please don't be mad. Just smile and know that I'm out having the time of my life.
