Keeping It Classic | Alex’s FC3S

Certain automotive trends come and go, but there is just something timeless about classic Japanese styling.  Alex Wiederhold’s Snow White Pearl Mica 1989 Mazda RX-7 Turbo II from Sarasota, Florida fully embraced this idea on his FC3S.

After purchasing the FC about 3 years ago, Alex set out to find and collect as many authentic Japanese parts as possible, while combining it with OEM styling to create a period correct build.

Everything from the Panasport G7 C5C wheels, the Mazdaspeed steering wheel, to even the Omori gauges is reminiscent of 90s styling.

Alex has fulfilled the vision that he had for the car, and is very satisfied with the outcome. There isn’t much more he would like to change on the car and who could blame him, when your car embodies one of the best automotive eras in recent history.
