Hey guys im new on here, been reading GRM mag for a few months now and I think its the best thing to happen to automotive magazines. I saw that there was a readers rides section while browsing through so I thought id look into it further and come check the site out to show some support. A little about me and my ride, my names Rob, im 23 years young for socal. My car is a 93 RX7, been working on it for a little over 3 years now. I wont go into to much detail, but here are a few pictures;

More information on the car can be found at http://fdbuild.blogspot.com/

Once again, love this mag and everything it stands for. Thanks for looking guys.

One of the most beautiful cars of all time, in my opinion.

I really like the rear spoiler on yours.

I just bought an FC and, thanks to you, now I want to sell it and buy an FD instead. Yours is a gorgeous example. The stance, wheels, lip spoiler, etc, all work perfectly together!

Welcome.

Love the car... stance, wheel gaps, etc!

But the old fart in me ... doesn't care for the fart can! I would prefer something with equal flow but less clunky looking. Everything else on the car is just so sleek....

The wheels are WORK Emotion XD9, sizing is 18x10 +18 R, +38 F. Tires are Federal RS-R 255/35/18 on all 4 corners.

I can respect that opinion and i definitely agree! However, the fact that the entire catback is titanium and weighs less than 7 lbs was enough to sway me ;). Plus the way it sounds is an added bonus.

And thank you everyone for all the kind words :)

I assumed by the way that the rest of the car was done that the exhaust wasn't just a "boy racer" bolt on. (or is that boy "ricer"?) My comment is just my opinion on esthetics.

And you know what they say about opinions....

Overall I think the car looks great!
