Gabriel Corona: 1993 Mazda RX-7

Gabriel Corona originally bought his 1993 Mazda RX-7 back in 2005 as a daily driver during his college years. When the water seals failed, he didn't have the funds to repair it, so it sat for a while. His father helped him pull the engine out of the chassis, and it was back in after some repairs. Unfortunately the apex seals went shortly after, and Corona was left to rebuild one last time. In 2017, Corona rolled his newly finished creation out on the street again.
