Red and Gold. Origins.

Okay, we may have a thing for gold wheels. John’s NSX, one of the FD’s, hell, even Katie’s Rumblewagon is sporting the first place color on wheels. Specifically, the gold on red look is a really nice contrast, and Bryan Turrin’s 1989 Mazda RX-7 GTUs FC3S fits that segment perfectly. Before the FD, before the WRX, we have this pristine example of how clean looks go a long way on older cars. The gold face forged BBS LM’s with red caps accentuate the already classy looks of the OEM red paint found on this particular specimen.

We had a chance to capture the FC yesterday during our Coffee and Rice event which was admittedly low in attendance, but high in quality. Check it out, it’s actually as nice in person as it is in photos.

Cars and Coffee.

Cars and coffee. In that order.

You’ll often find the Mayday guys at local cafes such as Catalina Coffee on Washington St. or Blacksmith on Westheimer and Montrose in downtown Houston. Most all of us are heavy coffee drinkers and love local brews and food trucks. So if you’re ever in Houston, and see some ricetastic cars on the street (because our cars usually can’t make it up most driveways), you should pop in and say hello and share a latte or scone with us!

Catalina times two.
