If you weren't already a devotee of the lightweight, rear-drive, rotary sports cars from Mazda's glory years, this video will convert you.

First-gen RX-7s aren't just awesome-looking, fun to drive, and dirt cheap nowadays. With a little work, they are tough enough to take jumps like a baja racer. This one, "The General," does it with a smile.

And if you're wondering just how light a ralllycross-spec RX-7 is, it only takes about ten people to roll it onto its roof then back onto its wheels, with the driver and co-driver inside. Still runs!
