Luis’ FC RX7

Everything has beauty in some shape or form, but not everyone will see it. This can be seen with Luis Diaz’s 1991 Crystal White Mazda RX-7 FC3S GTU.


Luis has always been around Mazdas, and rotary powdered vehicles with the FC3S being his all time favorite. There is just something about the body lines, shape of the car, and the mid-80’s/early 90’s styling that gets Luis feeling some type of way that not everyone can relate to.


Feeling mesmerized by the beauty of the FC3S, this started out as a bare shell weekend project, which turned into the car you see now with the help of his mechanic dad. Now it is Luis’ daily driver, and being constantly worked on to improve every aspect of the car.


Keeping it really basic, Luis decided to stick to the OEM styling to enhance the already beautiful features of the stock body.


The ever so classic choice of Work Equip 05s; looks great nearly on everything. These are supplemented with gold BBS RS hardware in 17×10 +17 rear, and 17×9 +10 front with 205/40 tires all around.


Engine is fully rebuilt with a 6 port turbo with a mild street port, and suspension is setup with Ksport Control Pro coilovers.


More OEM styling with the addition of the OEM S5 Turbo II front lip and fog lights


We can definitely see why Luis has been mesmerized by the FC3S body lines and styling. Beautiful.

Luis would like to give a special shout out to Action Tire for always helping him with all his wheel setups, and tire issues along the way. And TheCandyshop CPB for painting the car. Finally a huge thanks to his dad for being the mastermind behind restoring the car, and always helping Luis out with any problems.
