First time seeing the car in person was at MayDay Garage Rice Bowl Event 2015 in Houston, TX. I Remembered it from the 90s early 2000s as the Famous Rotary Xecret 7 Shop Car out of Los Angeles, CA. A few months after, I ended up getting the opportunity to purchase it from a private collector. After buying it I took the 500hp 13b out and replaced it with a brand new 600hp Street Ported 13b rew, Osgiken Trans, Diff was updated to a new Kaaz 1.5 unit as the old one had seen better days.

Total Suspension overhaul with New Custom Spec'd Ohlins have added right after. I've updated and changed things thanks to Mike at Evasive Motorsports to make it more road course friendly but without changing the History of the Ultra Rare Re Amemiya Kit. PPG Harlequin paint still shines like it did in the late 90s. Full-Time Attack cage is in the Works and Currently at 2300lbs with me in it but Future goal is to add Dry Carbon Doors/Hatch and Finish the 4 rotor N/A setup. It's not everyone's cup of tea but I love the Uniqueness/Rarity of the Re Amemiya Kit.
