I’m from Merced, CA, a little town that is located two hours south of Sacramento. I own one of my many dream cars an imported 1992 Mazda RX-7. I am still a college student with big dreams of being an entrepreneur.

I was lucky enough to meet my good friend, Kevin AKA Deebo, from an early age and still had a tight friendship till today. Kevin and I lived down the street from each other. He had older brothers who were into cars. Every time we hung out at Kevin’s house, he would always make me watch racing videos on YouTube and we would go on Craigslist to look at Japanese cars for sale. Even though I was forced to watch racing videos, I was still not into cars….until one afternoon, I saw a stock dark green MKIV Supra roll down our street and it pulled into Kevin’s yard. From then on, I started looking at JDM cars on the slow dial-up internet and fell in love with cars. We grew up and got our licenses then the rest was history. Now, some of my close friends and I have created a brand called, “Lowkatski'' and we hope to make our mark in the car community by hosting car shows and car-related functions/merchandise so everyone can come together to enjoy.

I like how motivated people are to get together and enjoy each other’s company. Adding on, I feel welcomed when I am surrounded by car enthusiasts, even though I know nobody when I attend meets/shows in different cities. It's Kind of funny, but I chose the FD because it was the most realistic dream car from my list that I can afford. A bit of advice if you're thinking of buying one, DO NOT BUY A RIGHT-HAND DRIVE RX-7 IF YOU ARE LIVING IN CALIFORNIA. Buy a left-hand drive model and save yourself the headache.

I have owned this car for almost two years now and I still pinch myself just to be sure I am not dreaming. As for driving, I still get butterflies when I gas the car up to hear the stock twin-turbo spool. I would say that the body kit makes it different from others. FD’s are known for their smooth timeless body design, but I have a kit that adds aggressive sharp body lines to the front and rear fenders. Adding on, the paint job that my painter, Shao X. aka NUCCA BUILDZ, for me the car was unique. From different angles, my hood vents and other pieces of my exterior would reflect a different colour, similar to a pearl paint job.

The rotary community is going to hate this, but I plan on swapping the rotary engine out for something else other than an LS. *wink.

The most work done on the car is the bodywork. I could not have achieved this without my very good friend Shao X., owner of @Nucca-Buildz, for working on my car’s bodywork and paint. Without his talent, my vision of the car would not have been achieved.  

Also, my friend Keng T. rewired my harness and helped me with a bunch of electrical issues because I know NOTHING about the electrical side of cars.

Future Plans:

  • One is a swapped motor, which I already put down.
  • Second is, add a roll cage.
  • The third is if I'm not swapping the motor out, I am probably going to go with a single turbo setup.
  • Fourth is trying to hit up every show I can possibly do in the US.
  • Fifth is maybe change the colour up after I complete the single turbo or motor swap.
  • And finally, change the widebody if I get bored with it.
