Bryan’s RX7

Not only does the car look cool, it has a lot of cool history!

I’ve never official met Bryan in person but I added him to Facebook years ago because he had a red 1st gen. RX7 that had a lot of Kaido inspiration to it! Fast forward to 2021, and he has this white car which we will be talking about today!

Bryan’s first car was an SA/FB RX7 so he has always loved this specific generation. He bought this one in 2017 as a rolling shell that was solely used as a race car from 1996 onward. So the car was setup right but there was a problem; he couldn’t drive it on the street due to the title having a lien. The first owner didn’t really care for the car letting it sit for years until the 2nd owner got hold of it in 1996 where he set it up for racing.

Luckily for Bryan, he had all the original records of the car so he was able to track down the 1st owner, had everything transferred over, and was able to get it back on the road in 2020 after not seeing public use for almost 15 years!
