Stick Shift Survivor: 1984 Mazda RX-7

What color is this next car? Is that beige? Or tan? Or does it matter when you’ve got a car that is as engaging to drive as Mazda’s first generation RX-7. I found this car after someone asked me if the original RX-7 was available with an automatic, which it was for some insane reason. Driving and maintaining a vintage RX-7 with a slushbox would be a total chore, but a manual version of the same car would probably put a smile on your face even as you added two-stroke oil to the gas tank. Find this 1984 Mazda RX-7 offered for $6,500 in Lynwood, CA via craigslist.
