Once again on my forum trolling, I saw pictures of Andy’s FC in a wheel thread on RX7club, and he turned out to be friends with a few people I knew in GA. Two of them being Justin and Brannon.

Brannon took the trip up to Gwinnett last weekend so we set up a time to shoot some cars. One of the people we met up with was Andy and his beautiful FC vert. Even though the day had its fair share of headaches and the weather didn’t cooperate with us at all, we made the best of it and got some good shots.
Let’s start with the owner of this thing. Andy is hilarious and kept us all laughing during the shoot, even showing off his crazy parkour skills at one point. Some sketchy local kids came up to ask about our “race cars” and Andy proceeded to slide the parking lot but we took off before we received any unwanted attention.
I’ve always been a huge fan of FC convertibles and this one pulls out all the stops. After hearing so many good things about this car I expected a lot and when we pulled up I knew how true all of this was. Simple but effective, everything on this car flows so well. From the fresh white paint to the Shine Auto lip, damaged just enough to show that the car is still driven, it all just seems so right. Kei Office coilovers and camber plates have it sitting low while still being very functional. Staggered Mustang Cobra reps paired with stretched tires fit the fenders nicely and add to the very aggressive look of this vert.
Don’t expect this to be the last you see of this car either. The way he talks some changes could be happening soon. Andy wants to give a shout out to Tim Wallace who has played a major part of this build. I think I can speak for Brannon and myself and say it was awesome to meet Andy and check out his FC
