    95 Chaste White Phoenix

    From a '93 Montego Blue to a '95 Chaste White, both will make a revival of my obsession from August '17 accident.

    Looks nice, love stock-looking FDs. What happened to the Montego?

    Driving from Florida to Iowa to see in-laws. The car drive great as we just rebuilt the motor, rebuilt the transmission, installed supporting mods to whip around 400hp on the bnr stage 3 turbos.

    On the end of the 3rd day, 30 miles away from our destination and 10 hours into the days drive taking scenic back roads and old historic highways, the road we chose to finish the complete drive was the wrong choice.

    The black pavement turned gravel at the top of the hill. I was on cruise control with no feet on the pedals and with on hand on the steering wheel because the road before like it has been in the Midwest was a nice melodic drive of ups and downs on small hills.

    Well, I immediately hit the brakes to cancel the cc and firmly grabbed the steering wheel as I yelled to Jeanne to HOLD ON. I corrected three times and brought the car to a more stable speed sliding all over the gravel going down hill before running off the side and sliding on top of a down tree.

    Ah, crap. Well, as long as you are both OK, everything else can be re-done! Will you be transferring parts over?

    Chaste White Rx-7s are sky rocketing in price right now. They are a Rare Color in the community and are now highly sought after. Highest Ive seen go was a low mileage Chaste white for roughly 30k-32k. CYM yellow rx7's following suit.

    Again, only 500 FD's were imported in 1995 so they are a rare year too. I happen to have number 440/500 with a manufacturing date of 12/95

    All the suspension components i.e. mazda competition bushing control arms, ohlins, built motor/tranny, greddy v-mount, everything is getting transferred over. The montego blue was shipped on monday from Iowa to New Jersey. The Chaste White is on its way tomorrow.

    I love the CW FDs. Does it have a red interior? (*please say yes*, *please say yes*, *please say yes*)

    I'm a little biased toward that color though. ;)

    Red interior in FDs was an option and expensive. Not a lot of them have it. But I ha e a black interior and wish It was red. Lots of owners will replace their seats with a red recaro authentic spirit R seats which run ya 4-5k a pair or just plain red recaro seats that are similar but not the Spirit R seats that cost 1800+

It was so bad that I couldn’t see out the rear hatch. But at the price of the defroster. Ugh! I live in a Florida so I’m okay.

    The car was also shipped to IRperformance in New Jersey.
    The car will meet up with the Montego blue to do a motor and full drivetrain swap, bushing and coilovers swap, turbos and all supporting mods of the twin turbo 404 hp into the Chaste White

    While the motor is out, I have arranged a body shop to remove everything from the engine bay to be freshly painted.

    The MB is already there and the CW left last night

    That's a really nice Miata. What's your address anyway because I want to send flowers. Also, when do you and Jeanne sleep?

    Engine is pulled and all the engine bay is stripped down for a paint job.
    I ordered the greddy v-mount half kit to install in the chaste white Rx7. Everything At the condenser and below was destroyed in the accident.

    I also ordered 18x9.5+40 fronts 18x10+40 rears te37SL in pressed graphite from Japan. Fronts will be wrapped in 255/30 and the rears 285/30s C09F962E-FEDB-47E0-A3CA-D7E0152022CC.jpg79DA54A0-8C9B-4662-BBCA-DFD452C56329.jpg



    A reference pic of What 285s look like for the rears.

    Renewal. All the upgrades on the Montego blue are being swapped over to the chaste white plus more. The car is going to need to be painted on the exterior, but we’ll wait for the bumper facelift for next year.
