SevenStock is probably the most anticipated event of the year in Southern California for Rotary fans and owners. I clearly remember as if it was yesterday attending SevenStock last year, running and walking around every single aisle like a little kid, trying to take a photo of every single car that attended. It was during the time period when I didn't know jack about cars, especially rotaries, except knowing the fact that Rx-7s were the shit! Well...that's what I heard, so ever since then, my interest in Rx-7 FDs was growing and as of now, it's my favorite car. Yea~ I know I know~ Rotaries are difficult to manage and not really cost efficient when a problem occurs, but I really don't care! It's like falling in love with someone and willing to do anything it takes to keep her v(^-^)v If I do get one in the near future, I'll definitely make a separate savings account just for the car :D
Anyways, back to SevenStock, the event location for this year was different than last year. Last year's event was at Mazda HQ in Irvine, CA where Cars and Coffee is held every Saturday. I'm not sure if this was the first time, but for this year, it was held at Fairplex, Pomona, CA. Now a few things changed, such as admission fees for people who wanted to show their ride and general + parking fees for spectators. Considering all these 'economic' changes, I was a bit worried with the amount of showcase cars and spectators because last year's free event was totally off the hook. Arriving with our editor Edgar Lozoya at the event around 12pm and taking a quick glimpse of the area, the showcase lot was smaller, amount of cars participating was smaller, and the quality of cars went downhill big time compared to SevenStock 13. I was sort of disappointed, but seeing one well-done FD was good enough, such as the one shown above owned by Ryan from R-Ryde. Let's get to the coverage, so that you guys can enjoy some rotaries!
Dam..it's been such a long time since I came to this place. I think it was during high school when I came here with my X.
The entrance was covered with past SevenStock banners. Already 14 years and still going strong!
I wasn't familiar with how things were set up this year because of the new location, but if I did go through every lot as planned, there was an indoor and outdoor section. I'll start from the indoor section because it was hot as hell.
Loved the finish on those Weds SA-67Rs.
FC on Blitz.
Super clean! Can't go wrong with Enkei RPF1s.
You'll see this FC in a famous magazine pretty soon.
2 flushed out skateboards and a flushed Rx-8.
Whoa! Look at the color.
Sitting on HREs.
One of my favorites FDs from the indoor section.
A bit more aggressive sized wheels would make the car look much better.
Danh's FD from More Japan.
Ryan's FD was the best looking out of ALL the cars.
So the trophy went to this FD. The turbo setup was definitely insane, but other than that, everything else was just plain simple to me.
The only Matte Black FD.
Slammed Rx-8! BBSs were customized by Wheelflip.
SSR SP1s in Black Chrome (?)
Black on Black!
Functional fitment on Volk TE37s.
Ouuuuuu. Polished in and out.
Nicely done FCs.

This car wins at almost every event. Clean as hell.
Now to the outside lot, I've seen a few Rx-3 photos going around the net, especially this one.
Eat you up!
Still in the learning process with classic Mazdas.
I would so drive this to work.
Tracked? Looking not too shabby on Enkei NT03+Ms.
I had no clue RE Amemiya had an office here in the states. Seems like I'll need to visit one day.
Little girl at the left falling in love with the Yellow FD.
Not common at all to see cars on Racing Hart Cp S10s.
OG Work Equips.
Not sure if this FC drifts, but it was clean.
F1 cars that always come out at Mazda related events.
Meaty tires on VS-XXs is something I don't see too often.
Wow. Rx-7 FC conv. on RE Amemiya kit. I have no idea why I can't remember this car...wth...
Something going on here...
Wouldn't this be nice as a trophy?
RHD Rx-7 FD.
This one won various Time Attack events.

Midnight purple Rx-8 on Time Attack edition Volk ce28ns.
MMMmmmm~! Another FEED equipped Rx-7 FD.
You guys loved this FEED FD when I posted it up on the fanpage.
Bumped into a blogger friend Phillip. Check out this blog called KounterKultured.
I was looking at this car for a good minute. It's a D1GP participated FD built by a shop called Rotary Power USA.
How i want my FD to look.
The guy at the back looked like a cop...or maybe he was..wait...he is.

Nicely done FC.
I've seen this Rx-8 somewhere...

Serious conversation going on here with our editor Edgar Lozoya.
These FCs were aggressive!
Last shot I took outside before going back inside for raffles.
Some randomness, I spotted this guy wearing a Christian Audigier jacket/sweater and Gucci hat...both name-brands but don't match at all! What's my point? nothing really...just saying.
and~~~ last shot before I left. Hope you guys enjoyed some Rotary sickness!
