In late 1986, not wanting to wait for a factory RX-7 convertible (not released by Mazda untilthe 1988 model year), Racing Beat built an RX-7 open-top hot rod-- referred to as the RacingBeat “California Roadster”-- literally from a stock coupe and sheet metal panels. This roadster was featured on the cover of Car and Driver Magazine. Stretching its designing efforts again, Racing Beat designed and built the 13B Turbo rotary powered “California Haulin” pickup truck based on a 1989 Mazda B2000 Pick Up. This truck was featured in Hot Rod Magazine, Truckin Magazine, and several other automotive publications.
