This is something that hits more close to home with me. Being apart of has allowed me to connect with a variety of different Mazda enthusiasts. One such Mazda enthusiast is Chris Tran, who owns the 1993 Montego Blue FD3S on Volk Racing TE37SL who then in turn connected me with Erik Nomm’s 1994 Red Pearl FD3S on Work Meisters. In the end we are here with a photo set of both these rotary beasts for your viewing pleasure.

Thanks to Amanda Hacks and Erik Nomm for shooting this duo.
