So one or two of you homos asked for this so I'll subject you all to it. I'm mostly maintaining it on GRM where I'm pretty active but I'll mirror it here so feel free to hit me up if you have questions. Enjoy. Introduction: I’ve sadly put a bit more thought into how I’d like to introduce and structure this project than a lot of other things I’ve done in my life. Any of you familiar with my meandering writing style on the forum know I have a tendency to repetitively edit posts after hitting the submit button. This isn’t out of fear of being wrong on the internet, but rather an attempt to clean up fragmented thoughts and clarify things after I smash the submit button. Every now and again the thought that I should really put some effort into attempting to become competent writer floats top of my list of priorities. So here’s my initial attempt at it. The subject of this project is a 1973 RX-3 Rotary Wagon. The RX-3 “Savanna Sports Wagon” was only brought into the US for one year from 1972 to 1973. This is an S124A chassis which means it’s a real deal Savanna Sports Wagon, not an 808 converted to look like one. Since it’s a Series I RX-3 variant, it once played host to a 12A good for about 110 HP in North America. That engine is long gone which left me with a blank slate. More on that in a bit. I posted a bit about the car when I was looking to buy it, then again shortly after I bought it, but the project has run into roadblocks as my life has been in flux for some time. The primary issue is that my previous career was a field technician for a DoD contractor. While it was a great job, I spent between 8 and 10 months a year out on the road. The handful of months I was home never really lined up with my friends schedule, from whom I agreed to buy the car, and a severe restriction on project time as I was renovating a house and spending time with my family. The second reason is that I left aerospace to work in the ERP space just before my son (backup child) was born. So, in addition to moving across the country and a paycut, my spouse and I now have an additional child, another house which needs some work, and the seemingly endless process of settling our first child into the new home. All that for a forewarning that this build is going to be slow. The car isn’t going to be returned to stock but instead an OEM+ type configuration. I can poach, refurbish, or fabricate-to-fit the vast majority of the parts that are missing but certain items, like all the door seal rubber, appear to only be available from sources located overseas. That drastically increases the price of components so I’ll have to see exactly how inventive I need to get. So with that out of the way, here’s the story of how this came to be.
