Ben Jepson loves the rotary engine, so it's no surprise that he also loves the RX-8. He wanted to do something different with his Mazda, so today, the 2004 RX-8 sits on air ride suspension and big JDM VIP wheels. A handful of other mods come together to make this California cruising RX-8 truly one of a kind.
