The Crowd Pleaser. Sometimes.

We know you’ve all seen Khiem’s FD RX-7 a billion times on the internet, but for whatever reason, most people have never “really” seen it aside from some small local car meets. Lately, it’s been on stage at last month’s Cars & Coffee and even more recently, TX2K14, where this type of car belongs.

When the hood goes up, everyone crowds around within seconds at Cars & Coffee

Sitting pretty with the three rotary powered FD's at TX2K14

Most people think FD's don't make an insane amount of power, especially at TX2K

Until that hood goes up

I believe "dick magnet" is the correct term as Linhbergh and Khiem demonstrates

Man/dick power

Haaaaayyyyy

Since the internet is already blowing up from this photo we shared on social media outlets, here it is in it’s glory! Taken by Danh Phan, aka Repost King, and edited and owned by Khiem Pham. This photo was taken this past Sunday at our weekly Coffee and Rice meets at Catalina Coffee in Houston, TX.

Sitting Still.

Khiem still shoots cars. He’s been inactive lately with photos mainly because his time has been tied up with his moneypit, the 2JZGTE FD RX-7. Yesterday he had a chance to take it to work so that he could drive it to a local Houston RX-7 meet afterwards. During his downtime, he managed to take a nice shot of the car in a ho-hum surrounding.

Period Blood Red.

Yep. Still got it.

Going back in time: Ridox JZA80 Supra

Surprisingly, with all the FD’s, S14’s, miatas, S15’s, and NSX’s around Mayday Garage, you would think one of us would try to build a Toyota Supra. In reality, we’ve all talked about what would be the ultimate Supra, but never quite pulled the trigger on getting one. You would also think that being based out of Houston, TX, home of the now famous TX2K events, we would definitely build a 1000+ hp one, but really have all come to realize that the Supras here in the US vary greatly from their Japanese owner counterparts across the Pacific Ocean. So for inspiration, we present to you, the ultimate street Supra in it’s most iconic form: the Ridox JZA80 Supra personally owned by Manabu Orido taken from screen grabs of Hot Version.

Gotta love it!

Lifestyle: The Mayday Life.

This post is a long time coming.

So a lot of people I meet at car events/meets/shows always say three things-
1. “Hey man, I love the photos/coverage/cars you guys put up!”
2. “Yeah, I always keep up with your blog and Facebook page!”
3. “What else do you guys do besides take photos and write posts?”

Three's company?

Work'ing hard or hardly Work'ing? Definitely the first.

Some people love shopping in malls, we prefer junkyards.

Need a lift?

If you know us personally, then you know what we’re into, and the kind of things we do, but a lot of you have been asking what exactly we do. Sure, we post random car pictures on Facebook, take photos of cars and meets/events, but like our tagline suggests- we are ricers first, bloggers second. So in an effort to show our followers what we’re into, we will be introducing another segment, The Mayday Life. The Mayday Life will be a random post about ONE day in our lives, and it could be about pretty much anything. But it’s always car related.

First Look: Ameen Rizvi’s Balls Out Toyota Cressida.

As I write this post, Ameen Rizvi and the 786 Motoring crew are still driving through Arizona with precious cargo aboard. The cargo in question is proof of a Labor of Love put together through the last several years by Ameen. The 1989 Toyota Cressida is undoubtably the sole reason why the road trip exists. The destination is the sunny skies of Irwindale, California, host to this weekend’s Formula D Pro-Am.
