Meet...

I'd be interested in the meet, too....however, I'm in Utah. I'm assuming Fort Collins is in Colorado?

I bought the sport velocity Red, put custom aftermarket red/black leather interior, an upgraded sunroof (scary, I know), plus I've put on some 20" lexani roma wheels. I'm running S0-3 tires, which have the AQII technology, so I'm doing wonderful in the snow. Haven't had any serious snow as of yet.

I'm planning on piggybacking the ECU, possibly with Canzoomer's unit, throwing on the K&N intake, and exhaust by spring.

Hey Landon, welcome, and congrats on the car!

I got your PM, and will be in touch about the meet. Fort Collins is indeed in Colorado, just North of Denver. Feel like making a road trip out here in the spring? :D

Hello there!

Congrats on the car! Even more so, congrats on finding the RX-8 Club.com site! I've only been here a couple of months, and have found a vast wealth of information available from the other 6600+ users on this board. I would also like to extend to you an invite to join in with us on this thread: https://www.rx8club.com/showthread.p...threadid=14603
We are working on a local club, and on there's more info about it here.
Again, welcome to the forum, I'm sure you're going to love the car, if you don't already! :D

I checked out the "Colorado" page here to see if I recognized anyone that I knew from my old RX-7 days. I grew up in Fort Collins where I had two 1st gen RX-7's. Colorado was such a great state to own a rotary in! So many interesting places and roads to drive. During May of '95, I followed two brand new Corvettes down from Estes Park before the tourist season. They were racing each other and I stayed on their back ends all the way down in my '84 GSL-SE. Now I'm out in the midwest trying to decide if I should get an RX-8 while I'm here? You are all very lucky to live in Colorado... Indiana just does not have any interesting roads to drive.

Hey Doc, have you ever been on the road between Encampment and Baggs, WY? When I was a kid it was a dirt road (my grandparents had a ranch near there), but in '94 it was paved. Every time that I would drive it after it was paved, there were hardly any cars, lot of curves... great for a RX. Just watch out since it's open range.

I plan on taking numerous trips all over the place when the weather decides to cooperate. Including from Laramie to Walden, then to Saratoga, and make the big (130 mile or so), "scenic trip" through the Snowys... Obviously, I can't do it right now, with the 30-mile stretch from Centennial Westbound being closed for the season. I haven't made too many trips yet, (having just got my 8 in October), aside from Laramie to Cheyenne on Happy Jack Rd., and of course, Laramie to Ft. Collins on US 287. Just did that today, that road is fantastic, even with the increased amount of traffic...
I've driven a whole lot of "open range" road since moving here five years ago... I've had a couple of close calls with both cattle, and antelope!
I think you need to buy yourself an 8, take some vacation time, and head out here for one of our "mini-meets", or the big meet we are planning. (No date set, we will be discussing this at our first mini-meet, visit our website link is on my signature!) We will be announcing possible future dates and locales soon!
If I may, why, DEAR GOD, MAN - why Indiana?

Hiya Blacksheep, WELCOME, and Congrats!!! on your '8. You're gonna love it!

I'm just down the road from you in Longmont, so I bet your '8 will be the first one I see on the road besides mine. I've had mine since 10/7 and have YET to see another one except at the dealership, and Doccable's car when we've gotten together. It's cool having such a unique, hot, and unusual car. What do you think of all the attention you get in your car?

Doc, I met my wife at CSU. She's a bio-chemist here with Dow AgroSciences. We're here until she retires in 24 years. We want to retire in Wyoming... somewhere around Laramie.

In Indiana they salt the roads so much in the winter. It just breaks up the roads and causes major rocks flying around, not to mention that there is a rock quarry that I go by on the way to work with a lot of uncovered dump trucks. Then being the "crossroads of the nation" we have A LOT of truck traffic. You can imagine the rock chips that my wife and I have on our cars. The country roads here are narrow, straight, and crowded... a bit boring. This just makes it hard to have a nice car. I loved my RX-7's, and I always wished that I could have bought one that was brand new to baby from the start. In '94 I bought a '84 GSL-SE, and it was so much fun. I can see that the RX-8 is everything that I wished that my '84 was. I do want an RX-8, but if I wait until Spring of 2005 it can be a weekend car that I can selectively drive (my current car will be paid off by then). Believe me, I am looking forward to road trips back to CO/WY. Currently each year we do drive back to see our families. My father-in-law owns an auto body shop in Denver and I tend to have him repaint a hood/fender on one our cars.

I use to love driving the roads that you mentioned. Great wide open roads. Do check out the road from Encampment to Baggs during the summer. One of the best roads that I have been on. Beautiful twisty road! Next time that you go through Saratoga, check out the Saratoga Inn. http://www.saratogainn.com

Plus, is there a Mazda dealer in Laramie, or did you buy from Fort Collins?

grogie,
Thanks for the link! Waaaay to cool!
I'm sure there are worse places to end up than Indiana... although, I can't think of too many, :D (Aside from most of the tornado alley states).
As far as dealerships go... no, there isn't a Mazda dealer here, and no, I didn't buy from Ft. Collins, I actually bought from a dealer in Colorado Springs; who delivered it to me, and gave me about 3k off the sticker!
Good idea on waiting until spring for buying an 8... mine is a weekend car only.
Just a suggestion; why not join the Rocky Mountain RX-8 club? We'd be happy to have you as a member! Just click on the link in red in my signature and follow the links on the site. What's you summer schedule looking like? We can probably schedule one of our mini-meets to coincide with one of your visits back this way!

Hey Blacksheep.

I beat you by one day (12/27 from Gateway Mazda). I am SW of Loveland & cruise to Longmont down CR23. Nice to know there are two in Loveland. This one is Silver. It's my second rotary with the first being an R-100...... and that is a story for another post.

Great Colorado postings... I'll be watching.... and waiting for dry mountain roads :-)

I'll probally get an RX8 eventually, but i'm in no hurry i'll be living for the Navy around august at the earliest, so i dont really need a car payment. hehe which is why i havn't gotten an rx7 yet either. Maybe by the time i'm ready to get it they'll have a turbo version LOL.

Oh, and BTW, I don't suppose you're a Gynecologist by trade? :D
