Cars and Coffee March.

Sometimes we try to make the trek to Vintage Park for the Monthly Houston Cars and Coffee which is held on the first Saturday of the month. The only reason why we don’t come to all of them is because you gotta be there well before the asscrack of dawn. Hell, the rows and rows of Mustangs are there at who knows what time. The Houston RX Club invited us out so we brought out the FD’s and Dennis To’s RX8 to join them at 6am. Fun, but too early.

Houston definitely has people with absurd amounts of money.

The plate says it all.

The only RX-8 with us, but he did well reppin the SE3P's!

FD's for days

Deer – 1, Diffuser – 0.

A few weeks ago, the rotary powered FD (the red one, since there’s three Mayday FD’s), took a massive blow by running over a deer carcass in the middle of a highway late at night and did some damage, including completely ripping out carbon fiber rear diffuser number two. I think most people would be upset by this, but in the end, it’s just a piece of carbon fiber, something that can be replaced easily, so no need to sweat it too badly. Even still, we were able to take this cool photo and let Khiem’s magical fingers do the editing to it. Two of our FD’s will be out tomorrow morning at Coffee and Rice at Catalina Coffee at 9am in Houston. If you feel your car has what it takes to grace our site, bring it out tomorrow. We’ll be there this time with cameras. See you there!

Don't worry purists, this one here is all rotor.

Dat WekFest Prep.

So by now you guys have seen Khiem’s 2JZGTE powered Vintage Red FD RX-7 all over the interwebz. Believe me when I say his motor choice gets tons of hate from the rotary purists, but it’s what makes the world go round. People’s preferences in modifying cars is exactly that- a preference. The way we look at it, every car is a blank canvas, and with each modification done, it is an extension of oneself. In Khiem’s case, he’s owned a 500+whp Lexus SC300 and before that, he’s owned a 500+whp Honda Accord, so his obvious addiction is horsepower. But there is another FD. A “twinsie”, so to speak. Just like Justin Rogers’ white kouki S14 on silver TE37’s resembles Aubre Houck’s white kouki S14 on silver TE37’s, we have another Vintage Red FD RX-7 owned by another Team Mayday Garage member, but his preference is the finicky but cool rotary powered 13B-REW. The FD is about to hit the paint booth soon in preparation for WekFest TX with the new wide fenders and body work. Soon, this FD will join with Khiem’s 7 to wreak havoc in our hometown of Houston, TX, also home to December 15th’s WekFest TX held at George R. Brown Convention center. Be sure to check the car in it’s natural habitat at our Official WekFest Pre-Meet held at 8th Wonder Brewery the night before for an unforgettable time with Team Mayday Garage.

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.
