Another8owner. Did you go to the Phoenix Gold friends and family sale on 4/17?
I saw a RX-8 loaded with the aftermarket Mazdaspeed body parts.
I wasn't in my 8 when I went..

I'll be getting mine Saturday 4/24. Silver AT/GT, appearance pkgs, spoiler etc. It's being driven down from Seattle. I live in Lake Oswego and am constantly on 217 and all over Portland. I need to think about a cool custom plate. The first Wednesday's sound fun.

Yesterday, I went to Microsoft area to see Neocln (he is a member here too) so he can check out my Mazdaspeed suspension set-up and test-drive my "L¨ flashed car to see if he can feel the difference. What was exciting was that I ran into 3 other RX-8's within 30 minutes or so (not including Neoclnˇ¦s red 8). One of them was Nordic Green and we exchanged hand waves. It was so cool to run into so many 8's. I hope there will be an East side or greater Seattle area gathering soon

I just bought a "slightly used" 8 in Renton, WA, with only 2,333 miles on it. I had to drive all the way from Eugene, OR, to get it. I've had it a week now and I can truthfully say, the drive was sooooooo worth it. I love this car!

Also, I really like this website. I learned so much about the car before I bought it so I knew exactly what I was getting.

If you're in Eugene and spot a Velocity Red 6MT GT, it'll probably be me as I've seen no others like it. If I spot you, I'll give you a double high beam blink.

Greetings Spok,

Did you get your 8 at Lithia in Renton? I saw a Red 8 on thier used car lot and did a double take. Very surprising to see a used 8 already. If so, I'm glad it found a good home.

I'm sure you'll enjoy your car like the rest of us here.

Live long and rotor!

Thanks Blue87Sport and 93rdcurrent. Yes, the 8 I bought was the one at Lithia Hyundai. I did the "unthinkable" and arranged the purchase sight unseen. After all, how bad could it be after only 2,333 miles.

Well, the previous owner was not exactly what I would call "appreciative" of the 8. I think he even let people eat in it. Gasp! There is some very minor damage; just one little scratch on the front of the hood and some fine scratches that go down to the white primer. Otherwise, it's virtually new and I'm so very happy to have it; especially since I significantly less than what the dealer was asking.

Thanks again for your words of welcome.

Spok

I wonder if that was me in the Nordic Green!
I had similar experience but from inside a Nordic Green.
(Waves to all RX8 owners in NW area). Hope to see you guys on the road.

My company works with Norpac Cannery, so I'm frequently there. To my suprise, the plant manager (The guy in charge of everything there.) at Brooks Oregon drove up in one yesterday! Silver 6spd, and and getting a rear wing. Sounds like he's in love with his car. CJ
