Act fast - cheap Mazda Rx8
Mar 26th, 2017, 11:23am
 
Hey everyone,

Neighbours have a 2005 Rx8, one owner, dealer serviced.  Engine is flooded, so it's heading for the scrap-it program in a week, and they want it gone.

We are heading over today to try and start it up - the car is in beautiful shape with 87,000 kilometres, 6-speed, silver.  I'm sure they would part with it for barely more than the scrap-it price.  Send me a message ASAP if you have interest.  I'll post again if we get it started today.

Glenn

EDIT:  Three hours later, we got it to run under its own power for a few seconds twice, but still not running constantly.  From what we can tell, it's just badly flooded, and likely just needs a few more hours of pulling the fuses, cranking, trying again...

Gone!  Not to the crusher, happily.
