Ultrafit1,

I live in Spokane. I have a Ti Grey GT, Nav, and rear spoiler. Wave if you see me. I have felt like the only car in the area so far. I purchased mine on 10/20 and have only seen one 8 driving around the whole time and it had dealer plates. Anyway P/M me and we can chat. I am trying to get something going here in the area.

its a play on words- zoom filling in for "room" and 44 is "for four" so room for four people in the rx-8 turns into zoom44:D

it's also on my plates so when you do see a silver ,check the plates to know if its me or not!

Is this any board member?:

a Blue RX8 on the I405-SR520 junction come flying by with a wave yesterday (2/12). I didnt catch the plates, but that was the 1st blue RX8 i've actually seen on the move... and prolly the 2nd blue RX8 i've seen outside the dealerships... damn, that metalic on the blue looks so nice in the sunlight, originally my 1st preference... and it was bloody clean as well!!!

BTW, a silver 8 creeped up behind me on the 26 the other day. I flashed my hazards, he gave me a quick high beam and wave. It was kinda cool.

Thanks for the welcome.
Hey Meladdin that was me. You are the first RX8 I have seen on the road other than myself. Just picked up my car 3 weeks ago from Vancouver Mazda. Was considering the red one as well, so was happy to see yours on road. Hope to see you again

Congrats and welcome, Triumphrider!

Bet you got the only 8 in Rochester so far. :D

What color and options?Post a picture!

Get out there and enjoy your car. From your user name it sounds like you ride a bike too. Must be a tough choice which vehicle to take when the weather's nice.

Welcome to the wonderful world of RX-8 ownership, Triumphrider It's good to have another convert, though I hope you kept your Triumph too!

Talking Yep - only 1 in Rochester

I don't have any pics yet. It's red and pretty basic (6 speed, of course). It really is difficult to choose...bike or car...car or bike. I have an 01 Triumph Sprint ST (sport tourer - very competent in both regards).

Cool

I'm not a convert, Rex, as you may have figured out from my previous post. There's nothing like a motorcycle and a llllooooonnnngggg ride just like there's nothing like an RX8 and any ride at all. Vicki

Cool.....I'll be there. Sunlight Silver, 6 speed. Base model. Didn't care to spend the extra for appearance because that's one thing we do here at our shop, body kits, etc. Also didn't worry about stereo upgrades because I've got about $3000 in equipment that I can install in it.
I'll check out the thread and be there for sure.

Any one here w/ Titanium Gray w/ appearance & Spoiler in Redmond Area?
I think I ran into you about 3 times this week. I was in my black 8. Your car looks awesome! Kinda makes me regret not getting the appearance package.

What weather! Yesterday I rode the motorcycle to Mount Rainier (where I am doing an internship). Today I took the red 8. Tomorrow??? Choices, choices.

Any comments from the Olympia Izzy's get-together?

Although, I love driving my 8.....the FD still calls to me. Every sunny day without it....is like a month of rain with it. (I don't drive it in the rain. ) I just wish it was fully tuned, so I could drive it. Some day, it will travel the roads again....oh yes....it will. CJ

I just recieved my yellow 8 a week ago, and am enjoying the thrill of it. Not too many 8's yet in the Salem area, and enjoy watching heads turn from everyone around me. If there is an organized group in the Salem/Portland area, I'd be interested in knowing as I love cruising.

Yeap, Roundtable Pizza is the place. Lately we've had around 3-5 Rx-8s per get togethers. But most importantly, a group of very cool and friendly fellow rotor heads getting together. CJ

Ah, I may have seen you two weeks ago or so. I was on my way to the Casino one Saturday, and I saw a completely loaded yellow '8 - GT, appearance package, sun roof open, etc. Wasn't in my '8, though.
