What a busy summer/year it's been. I haven't been around these parts in a while. Thought I'd drop by to check out whats going on and share my new toy with everyone. It's a 2004 RX-8. Perhaps it's midlife crisis kicking in but I've really had an urge lately to get something I can tinker with, maybe autocross too. It's a pretty fun car to drive.

Nice! You'll be hearing from Chris soon!

I want one of these for my mid-life crises...which I'm planning for the Spring:

Ya I thought Chris had an 8. Maybe he can share some insights with me. laugh

I've been a bit obsessive lately reading about these cars, thinking about even attempting to rebuild the motor if it's required someday.

Right on, Ben. Congrats and enjoy!

I think Chris has a few RX-7's, too.

I drove and loved an RX-8 before buying my current (midlife crisis) car. I just didn't fit me very well in a number of ways, but it was FUN.

Mark, that's cool. What is it?

That's a pretty sweet car Ben. Gratz!

We expect to see some dash mounted GoPro videos if you get into autocross racing. We used to do that every winter out on the river once it froze. It started informally but grew into a popular, semi-organized event. It certainly gives a whole new perspective on drifting.

It's a Can-Am Spyder. JP's wife says that I'm not allowed to have one, but I'm going to rebel and get one some day anyway. smile

Wow on a frozen river? That's crazy and awesome. Maybe it could be something like this. laugh

Here I am!

Yeah, I have also have a 2004 RX-8, black.

Also have a (not running at the moment) 1991 RX-7 Convertible. I sold my sort of running 1986 RX-7 coupe.

What do you want to know about it?

And holy crap, Ben, you are tall! laugh

Very good Ben; enjoy. And yes, you certainly are tall; you make the RX-8 look smaller than my Miata!
