There's a black FD with a rotary and at least three v8 swapped FDs in the Baton Rouge to Gonzales area. Mine probably is the most often driven one since it's my only car.

Here goes another! I haven't seen any other 7's rolling around, but I am keeping my eyes peeled!
The black FD above is awesome!

Is your FD the rotary or a V8? You ever hit the street races (or gathering of car enthusiasts) on the weekends? A couple of guys at work were telling me that they usually meet up at the go kart track?

Mine has a 416ci LS in it (I know I know). I went to a few of the meets but most of the time its just loads of mustangs and guys vaping in a parking lot. Granted you can get races from the few real racers there.

Mine is rearended right before christmas and is now getting all the drivetrain swapped to a new chassis. (ignore the blue bay, it's getting repainted)

That's a super clean looking FB by the way! Check out The Cars and Coffee Baton Rouge Facebook page, they meet every month Normally I go when I'm home from work but havent until the new car is finished probably around May. As far as the racing meets there is two, one on thursdays off college drive at coffee call and one saturdays at rockstar racing. Most people dont show up to either until about 9pm.

New guy in the mix, not my first 7 but my first one I've actually had money to play with it. I picked up a 87 TII needs a rebuild, and a few small parts. I'm looking for a solid engine management setup that will support e85, any tuners around here for rotary cars? also, anyone interested in a flooded vert? haha. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Jonathan (Gorilla RE) Is the only local knowledgeable rotary guy I know of. Cool down to earth guy too.

There is a few more sevens in town now I believe. I now have 3 FDs but none running and all getting swapped.

My babies:


Built to sell



Keeper car



Future track car
