Please Rescue This REPU

Illustration for article titled Please Rescue This REPU
Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

The Mazda REPU is a strong contender for the worst idea in automotive history: a pickup truck (which benefits from low-end torque) with a rotary engine (which has no low-end torque). Please save this one.

Everything on this $28,000 1974 REPU listed on Miami's Craigslist (click right here when the ad goes away) seems wonderful. Well, everything but the wheels. Make them go away. Please.

  3. Call myself "No Pistons Allowed Racing"

  5. Profit
