New member, but not new to rotary

Hello, my name is Jeff. As the title states, I'm new to this site but I also own 2 second gen RX7s and will be the proud owner of a 2004 Nordic Green RX8. I'm a 36-year auto repair technician currently working at an independent shop in central Oklahoma. I have worked on most makes and models of cars and trucks since 1976 and started working on rotary-powered vehicles in 1982. I'm known as "scrip7" on the RX7Club forum. I'm looking forward to reading and posting here often!

Where is your shop at?? I live in Moore & may (hopefully not lol) need someone to work on my car in the future, I haven't heard of any mechanics that advertise being able to work on rotary engines in my area. Granted, I haven't really looked, but I just took my car to the dealer because they always were the one that did any work on it for the previous owner.

Fastest color lol. I never thought I'd have a green car but it's a cool shade of green.

No, I don't think so. I just got my car last Monday. I started researching on this forum when my Mazda3 was totaled & I needed another car, I really wanted an rx8 & just wanted to make sure that it wouldn't be too much trouble.

Congrats on getting ur 8!

I asked if you knew Nolan because I noticed he was in ur friends list (linuxadickt). He started a group on Facebook called "Oklahoma Rotary Enthusiasts" so check it out. We had our first Rotary BBQ last month at my shop. What a blast! So I guess this is ur official invite lol.

Hey! If you are ever close to Choctaw come and see me at the Boomarang Diner on 2400 Main St off of 23rd Street.
I love talking to my fellow 8 enthusiasts.

I drive the 05 Black Cherry Shinka 8 and i always park really close to the street.
