ISS brings out almost everything, which is no surprise considering that it’s the biggest meet of the year. A car we saw last year was Nick Hancock’s 2JZ swapped FD RX-7. It wasn’t all the way there last year, but he took the year and buttoned it up.
The power plant is the same as it was a year ago: 2JZ with a big single turbo. No need to mess with that winning combination. See, we were drawn in by this Toyota motor in the Mazda chassis but Nick wasn’t quite ready for a shoot. He was getting the car ready for paint, and well..
He didn’t paint it. Instead, he too the car over to his friends at Utah Vinyl Worx for a matte white wrap. Gone are the black bumpers and red everything else. The FD looks amazing in white, and it can pull off a duckbill spoiler.
The interior also got a few touches. Hopefully we can do a full shoot on this car soon, it’s been a year in the making.
