This RX-7 R2 started its life as a rotary and thats actually how I first met Eric, aka Grandmighty. I was impressed by the clean build when it was a rotary and I waited a long time to shoot it because it was getting a transplant. When it was ready he hit me up and we scheduled a shoot. Here’s the results of a day with a LS3 swapped RX-7.
The paint on this car looked absolutely perfect for a car that was built in 1994.
Even the subtle details were done right with this build.
Sneak peak of the LS3…
This custom molded hood was a nice touch that you wouldn’t notice unless you were really looking.
This car is still one of my favorite Japanese iconic cars.
No rotary in this engine bay. Some people will argue that it should of stayed a rotary but haters will always hate. I think the car owner is the one who should make the final choice in what goes in his car.
If you have the horse power, make sure you have the right brake setup to back it up.
I don’t know if you can see that alcantara upholstered dash.
This was actually my favorite shot.
