it depends.. its actually gonna be a pretty close race.Are both of these vehicles manual transmission? Lets say yes.Both stock? lets say yes.What model is the RX7? Lets say.. RX7 Turbo II.NOW we have a close race. Both should run about 6.5 seconds to 60. But thats considering the FC is in pretty damn good condition (which is RARE to come across). Cuz 20 years will take quite a toll on ANY car. Im talking everything from transmission to suspension to engine. At the 20 year mark.. so many things could be wrong with a car.In a straight line, its gonna be a pretty close heat. The FC should pull off the line with the weight advantage and RWD, but i think the lude should catch an 88 FC at the end of a 1/4 mile once youre in VTEC range.Around a track? Like i said.. a 20 year old car could have anything wrong with it. If im not mistaken the 88TurboII has LSD. I could be wrong. But around a track, you also have to consider whether or not the prelude is an SH model or not. It'll have beefed up suspension. For an FWD drive, the Prelude isnt (wasnt) a bad handling car. But the RX7 will have the weight advantage and should be able to pull more G's around a corner. But those old stock brakes wont hold up that well. But lets be honest, the Prelude will be slower.. Because you're MORE likely to have a girl sitting in your passenger seat adding weight.. Cuz honestly, i LOVE the RX7. But thats me... im a dude that can appreciate what the RX7 brings to the table.. but to a girl who knows nothing.. its just a heap of junk. The prelude isnt some spectacular either.. but to the untrained eye.. its much prettier than a 20 year old car, that unless immaculately well maintained, probably smells like fumes when it drives by.=D

To be honest i love the RX7, but damn those Honda preludes are fast, the 3rd gen are a real quick. I think you will find that the Honda Prelude will win, they are a bit quicker. but it also depends on the driver, but 2 of exact same drivers, one driving a prelude and one in a rx7 you will find the prelude will win
