  1. sadly the 85 was sold to young drag racer, in no. fl. who no doubt has transplanted something akin to moon rocket motor by now. in shopping for this engine replacement I endeavored to know much more about rotary engines than I ever wanted to know. the import owner has since bought a 98 TopLess Corvette. Now I learn about "waterfall"-it's a part.
  2. Gimme a break snowbirds, If you can't jump into your antique and go for a ride any day of the year like here in Florida your state is a loser. How 'bout we post pictures of how much fun you and your prized car are having on the road in January?
  3. Greetings from South Florida, I'm a AACA Newbee to the Ft Lauderdale Region. I believe I represent the Next Generation of your AACA, however, I'm far from being a millennial, really far. My 436,000 mile car has been my Daily Driver, until I retired. On the weekends it was our SCCA sprint car or the ride to be a race official at SCCA, IMSA, INDY CAR, CART and American Motorcycle Assn local races. My gift to our Supercharged Model MR2 on it's 30th birthdate was a antique license. I'm proud to be the only oriental car in our region. And apparently o

Sample McDougald House Antique Car Show 450 NE 10th St, Pompano Beach, FL 33060 Saturday, January 12th The Ft Lauderdale AACA continued its’ traditional annual gathering of only our older cars at one of only a few antique homes in the area that serves as a museum in the Ft Lauderdale vicinity. This 1916 home is now in found in Centennial Park, which is in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, and maintained by Pompano Beach. Many local residents act as volunteer guides on tours of the home during visiting and tour hours. Our support event started with
  5. AN ICE CREAM SOCIAL FOR THE MEMBERS ONLY OF THE FT LAUDERDALE AACA MAY HAVE BEEN A 1ST FOR THIS CLUB. I'M NOT TOO SURE CAUSE I'M THE CLUB NEWBEE, BUT NONE THE LESS ENTHUSIASTIC HOWEVER.

THANKS TO GORDON FOR THE PICS,
  6. “FOUNDER’S DAY 2019” COOPER CITY FL CAR SHOW FT. LAUDERALE AACA OUR FRIENDLY FLAACA REGION CONTINUED OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE COOPER CITY RECREATION GROUP BY ORGANIZING THE 2019 FOUNDER’S DAY CAR SHOW.

  9. Our Ft Lauderdale Region was invited to display our members 25+ year old antiques in the heart of Ft Lauderdale. There were both wine and craft beer vendors dispensing products to the thousands of those who bought a plastic bracelet. Accordingly, their seemed to be some member reluctance to display vehicles in the center of the street, which was the idea of the promoter. Many of our region’s members preferred to display their cars in the more “controlled” and somewhat hidden parking lot behind the bandstand, which also afforded a more centralized social environment (which many of our older me
  10. Well I'm on my way to a AACA 24-B (racecar) form submittal to begin the certification process to show my car at a big time AACA event. Unfortunately, Steve Moscowitz was kind enough to inform me that my initial request to obtain racecar certification was mistaken by an employee as a Membership Renewal and could/may have been deposited in a "round file" as we vets used to call it. As a Army veteran I am familiar with administrative faux pas, they were a constant for us Viet Nam era guys. I'm kinda bummed I won't be able to get paperwork done for the "Winter Meet" up ther
  11. The Fort Lauderdale Region AACA The 9th annual Toys for Tots Although 2018 was #9 in the FLAACA series to support the efforts of the United States Marines in the South Florida Christmas gifting of children, it’s never an event on cruise control by any means. As with the Boca Raton concourse gala, the kickoff is to meet with Rick Case, our main sponsor to secure a date for use of his expansive KIA dealership “outside” paved parking facility. Then the FLAACA event Chairman Jim Wright starts the months long sojourn seeking the door prizes and giveaways that marked thi
  12. 1985 Mr2 Import Car of the Year Yep, just happened to run across this award while doing some research at the Motor Trend website. Back then the Mr2, being an import, was not allowed to compete with the American cars for the standard award. That’s sad because it was revolutionary for it’s time. So revolutionary that on the first issue of Automobile the 1985 Mr2 was compared to the Ferrari 308. That’s right our Mark1 Mr2 $14,000 against a $58,000 Ferarri. Not that the AW11-chassis MR2 was brand-new in April of 1986. It had already been on the market for more than a year,
  13. Hi Mike, You may wish to contact the "Toyota Nation" website to offer these manuals if there has been no interest here in the AACA. Altho my 1988 Mr2SC came supplied w a free FSM as a sales perk in 1988, the FSM would have cost me well north of $100 to purchase. Rest assured there is someone out there who has a "driving" interest in this car and would covert this offer. Mr2Tim US Army, Veteran.
  14. Hi Curti- The 13B engine is rotary engine supplied to antique 1980's era Madza RX7 2 seater sports cars. Which is a precursor to the issuance Miata sports car. It has no pistons, is very compact and utilizes carburetor in the early issues and FI in the later. Altho I rebuild 4 cyl conventional engines (with pistons) I am clueless about these rotaries but love challenges and mysteries so I threw myself into helping this good person. Thanks for inquiring about the New Era of antiques which are already winning AACA recognition and class trophies. BT
  15. Hiya Bloo, I'm attempting to help a 1985 Rx7 owner get his rocket back on the road. He knows little of mechanics and I know little of these rotaries and thus I cannot rebuild for him. He was on the way to becoming a FLAACA member when he blew his 13B. Helping him has really been trying my patience since he wants to not help his own situation. Need access to short block 13B.
