Early Saturday morning I awoke to a dreadful overcast sky. Getting on the horn I spoke with David H, the owner of this magnificent beast to discuss our course of action. Sadly, Florida gave us what it is known for, rain and a whole lot of it. Myself and a friend (who happened to let me stay at his house all weekend) met with David at Panera Bread, in hopes to kill time so the rain would end. It did not stop till late afternoon so we started a two minute scramble with dismal skies and a light rain mist. Even with the weather in doom and gloom mode this car was still simply stunning. Driving to our location you could just see all the heads turning to watch as we weaved through traffic. Now, David's story starts back in the yesteryear of 1994. If you are assuming he is the original owner of this black beauty then you are correct. He took it right off the showroom floor, being the only owner he actually knows what his car has been through. Want me to blow your mind? The paint with the exception of the Pettit rear flares and 99 spec front end is original as well. (How about them apples)
I flew out to L.A. this week to spend Christmas with my family. Which gave me the opportunity to meet up with Antonio Alvendia and Edward Uche for the first time. Of course cars were a topic covered quite a bit as the night went on and RX7 project cars were brought to light. Which then brought on the discussion of dream builds and this video I am posting now. I honestly can not give you a solid figure of how many times I have watched this video ever since it was posted on Youtube. I would guess Edward couldn't give you a guesstimate either. What I can tell you is the car was built by Trial Tuning Spirit. The FD3S has a 3 rotor swap running ITB's and and a slew of custom parts all done to make it a beast of a track car. I must say though. On my wedding day, I want a car much like this awaiting for the ceremony to end to take us away. Hopefully, rotors will be tied beind the car on rope to drag down the street behind us.
