Jesus Lopez: 1985 Mazda RX-7

Jesus Lopez purchased his 1985 Mazda RX-7 when he was 16 years old. His dad and his brother were always into cars when he was growing up, so he took some inspiration (and some helping hands) from them as he built the RX-7. Once he turned 18 and got another car as a daily driver, things got serious for this RX-7.
