Yup, still have it. Can't believe it's been over 13 years now since I picked up the RX-8, where does the time go.
Thanks man, that means a lot. How many miles on yours now? (with turbo?)

Yea definitely crazy, I got my first 8 almost 10yrs ago!
It has about 70k on it, only 10k or so with the Turbo Setup I think lol

It's all about to get pulled apart. The build will be well documented, it's going to be pretty crazy.

A few pictures from last weekend.
I can't even remember the last time this car was driven in the rain.

Got to Greg's place and had to park across the street while we broke out the ramps in order to get it up the driveway.



I really need to get myself a quick jack. These things are awesome

Nice, I'm thinking about buying some kind of low profile lift like that for my build this time. Want something that goes a bit higher than that though.

I've been meaning to do this for some time, but I thought it'd be disrespectful to the intent of this thread.

With that being said, here's my BB R3 again:



However, I also now have another Brilliant Black car (YES, this is the actual color designation of this car—totally coincidental—it was the only 6spd, supercharged S5 in my state at the time):



And yes, I still have the RX-8:

Could you post some more pics in different lighting of the rims on your car? My 8 needs its wheels refinished and I'm toying with going gold/bronze.
