Michael Isperov: 1993 Mazda RX-7

Michael Isperov had always loved the RX-7 FD platform. When he was out looking for a RWD turbocharged vehicle of his own, he kept his eyes open for the right one. He finally found a perfectly clean FD shell for sale, and pulled the trigger. Since then, the 1993 Mazda RX-7 shell he bought has come a long way.
