Jakes Forgotten Mazdas
Hey guys! so here’s a brief history about myself. I have been into building, Racing cars pretty much since I was around 14. I grew into cars, and they didn’t interest me at first but always loved riding in my Dad K5 Blazer. I even cried when he sold it! I started where a lot of car enthusiasts start, the Honda Scene. I learned a lot, and built some fun stuff. Afterwards I moved into Mustangs, where I completed my first major engine swap, a Thunderbird 2.3 Turbo into my 87 Fox Body. I remember my turning point, getting back into Japanese cars seeing Initial D (ironic right?) and hearing that sound…. I needed to understand sound, why does it appeal to me so much? So i sold off my New Mustang, a 1985 1/2 SVO and bought something much more reliable…. a 1989 Mazda Rx7… I can hear people laughing already.
Fast Forward 8 Years, i still have my 89 Rx7, and have become a Rotary Nerd, Lover, Racer, and Diehard Enthusast. If you like the Rotary Engine, i think we just became Friends.
