Defined Autoworks four Rotor NA Mazda RX7

Defined Autoworks four Rotor NA Mazda RX7

This four-rotor Mazda rx7 built by defined Autoworks was shot for S3 Magazine near a gravel pit/mulch pit close to Slowmotion Motorsports. This area might look familiar because I have shot some other photos here. The idle of this car is really amazing it sounded like an indy car and a muscle car had a baby. Defined specializes in building Rotary engines and RX7s. This was one of the first four rotor rx7s in the united states. If you want to see more about the car there is a fairly extensive youtube channel for Defined Motorworks.  defined autoworks four rotor mazda rx7

Photos from “The Shootout” aka DSM shootout

Photos from “The Shootout” aka DSM shootout

Back in the day, there was a movement revolving around the partnership between Chrysler and Mitsubishi. It started with the turbo dodges and evolved into the rebranded Mitsubishi brand “Eagle”. There was the Mitsubishi Eclipse and the Eagle Talon. The cars of that era were dubbed “Diamond Star Motors” aka DSM.

Northern Ohio was a hotbed of tuning these cars thanks in part to men like David Buschur at Buschur Racing. He started the DSM shootout decades ago. 

Times have changed and Mitsubishi focuses more on making air conditioners than they do on cars. The shootout started to accept more manufacturers like Nissan.

Anyway, here are some photos of some of my friend’s cars from the last DSM shootout I went to. Last year was canceled due to covid. Check facebook for details about the next shootout. Buschurracing.com

Ricky’s K Swapped Honda Civic Si

Ricky’s K Swapped Honda Civic Si

Ricky Kinder put an enormous amount of time and effort into this k swapped Honda Civic. He swapped the motor sourced the parts and did all the paint and bodywork. This car was as clean in person as it looks in photos. He has since parted it out. Hopefully, he will build something else soon. I believe he has started his own paint and body shop. Later on, Zach showed up to the photoshoot. We shot these photos in Newark, Ohio on a late summer day. It was a long drive from where I was living at the time but I am glad I met up with him to take some photos as the car doesn’t exist anymore. The parts on this car are getting harder to find and more expensive every day. Check out JDM Ohio Direct for parts.

Here is an impromptu photo shoot I did of a Ferrari F40 in the Cuyahoga Valley national park. I have decided to move some of my photos from Flickr to my own website and make them accessible for others to see. This first set that I am pulling from flickr. These were not used for anything commercially. Please do not use these with out permission. Re-posting them is fine.
