Description for Mazda RX-7 1979

I'm the original owner of this 1979 Mazda Rx-7 GS rotary engine sports car (purchased in North Carolina). This is the first year of the Mazda Rx-7. This Rx-7 GS model comes with aluminum alloy wheels rather than the stock steel wheels of the Rx-7 S model, body side moldings, and a five-speed manual transmission. With its "front mid-engine" design, the 1979 Rx-7 has a 50/50 front-to-rear weight balance for great handling. The spare is a real aluminum alloy wheel with a mounted tire. I parked the car in my driveway after it was registered and driveable in June of 2011 and I have not driven it since that time. Please note that I was unable to start the car at least five years ago and I just left it parked in my driveway. The summer sun has done damage to the dashboard and rearview mirror, but the body is very good. There is not a dent on it. The engine was rebuilt twice so its parts are newer than the rest of the car. Factory air conditioning is installed. I put "fair" as the condition, but THIS CAR IS CURRENTLY NOT RUNNING AND MUST BE TOWED. THE FIRST PHOTO IS ABOUT ELEVEN YEARS OLD when I took the car to a classic car show.
I have the original "Model '79 Owner's Manual" that came with the car when I bought it new. With some work, this car will run again or it can be used as a great source of parts. Only one of the five tires is flat. It does not start and has been sitting in my driveway for eight (8) years. MY PHONE NUMBER OF 408-997-2503 IS A HOME LANDLINE SO PLEASE MAKE A VOICE CALL SINCE TEXTING WILL NOT WORK! LEAVE A MESSAGE ON THE ANSWERING MACHINE IF I DON'T GET TO THE PHONE TO ANSWER IT IN PERSON.
I have added several current photos. Three show the engine compartment. The last two are interior shots that show the cloth seats and the carpeting with the custom floor mats. I vacuumed the carpeting and floor mats after these shots were taken and they look even better now. The original seats had black vinyl sides and a cloth middle. They were uncomfortable and eventually deteriorated. The current seats are all cloth Rx-7 seats and are much more comfortable.
