Is this the rock bottom for RX-8s?

I... love... that.
Yes. I get that too. I call it the "school bus effect." As in, bunches of little noses pressed up against the windows trying to figure out if the little black car is something cool and exotic or not. It amuses me to no end.

I get stares with open mouths from people while dropping off / picking up my kids from school and I open the rear doors.

Had people walking by say “oh wow, I didn’t know they open like that” or “those sure come in handy, huh”

plus people at gas stations that come by and ask WTF I just poured into my gas tank from my Rotary Bum bottle. Lol.

I love those moments.

That reminds me: there was a time when I just moved into my current place and the garage was full, so I had to park the car on the street.

I had once come out and see a few handprints on the otherwise clean driver side window. Naturally it was pretty funny to me.
