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.

That East Coast Swag.

Yeah, we hate that word too, but we love this FD RX-7 on rebarreled BBS RS’s. The east coast has a very high emphasis on super low cars with ridiculously expensive wheels, hence, why we love them. Our resident east coaster, Christopher Drinkuth, got a chance to snap this cool photo of this FD at H2o in Ocean City, MD about a month ago.

Khiem’s FD3S ver. 2.1

This past Saturday night, we had the pleasure of working with James Evins, aka Dreams x Machines, on taking a few fun photos. James has worked with us in the past, and we would consider him to be one of the top photographers in Texas for sure. He hasn’t shot much automotive content as he used to, but if you give him a camera and a lens, it’s fun to watch him work.

Khiem just recently bought some new Gram Light 57DR’s for his FD3S RX-7 and had a chance to finally lower it after Danny rolled the rear fenders. So what better way to capture how the car looks than letting James take a shot of it? In this photo, light was non existent, no speedlites/strobes were used, just a Canon 5D mk3 and a Canon 85L 1.2.

Rotary Revival: Jack Coxe’s Pristine Mazda RX-7 FD.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

“The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost is pretty well known for it’s take on “The road less traveled”, that is, doing things just a wee bit differently than most. When I asked they guys at Gorilla RE, a local tuning shop near New Orleans that caters to rotaries, if they knew of any cool cars, Jonathan Bruce, owner of Gorilla RE said he knew just the person. About half an hour later, this great white beauty was thrust upon my rotary lovin’ eyes.

Great Caesar's ghost, this FD almost woke the dead.

Seeing a proper 13B-REW always sends a tear down my cheek

Despite the torrential downpour, we rolled up our pants and kept shooting
