Taking a look at a friend's imported and well-built FC RX-7 Savanna. Oh, and his daily.
The past few times Nick has brought the FC around, I wasn't there to see the car. It wasn't until we had a local car show a couple of weeks back that I got to see it in person on Regamasters. He happened to come by while I was working on my car one day and invited me out to come see the FC. I then told him that I had been carrying my camera everyday for a chance like this one.
As soon as we got there, I came across his other toys. Boosted Miata and his drifty-boi 240sx.
There he is, on a hot summer day, swapping back from a 19in Volks that he had test-fitted back to the ole' regas.
If you were wondering about the volks or the LS430, this is actually his daily. Full packaged with everything (mostly comfort), lowered, and a 4uz that will get up and go.
Diving straight into the FC, Nick imported this Savanna FC RX-7 3 years ago. Honestly, I am quite impressed with the amount of rare parts that are on the car. As I watched him fit the NSX spec'd Regamasters and noticed the Blitz coilovers under the car. Just like everyone else, I love rotary engines for the way that they sound, and like everyone else, I would be too scared to be building one.
Affordable, sleek, and light as a feather, says James Pumphrey.
GReddy intercooler, you're telling me you aren't nerding out over parts like these ?
Late 80s interior with a touch of Recaro for the driver. Not too calm, not too aggressive.
Okay let's talk steering wheel for a second. I think Nardi-Personal is one of the best parts to ever come out of racing and be massively produced.
Adjustable dampening on the Blitz.
Thank you to Nick Cua for the opportunity to shoot this FC. I hope everyone gets to enjoy these photos as much as I have taking them.
