FL Saying hello

Hey everyone I'm checking in from south west florida in Naples. I've met a few guys in person from these forums wondering if there is anyone else out here.

I just bought an 05' RX-8 gt in winning blue on Wednesday. It was the perfect compromise between a 4door family car and sports car. My daughter fits in the back seat and the stroller fits in the trunk. My wife really enjoys driving it too. Everyone's happy. Found it in Miami and drove it back. Here it is...

Haha thanks guys. Actually Tim's advan rx8 was the car that first inspired me into wanting to own an rx8 one day. I can't believe I even found it in the blue I wanted. It had to be either blue or white....

Here is Tim's very old post on his car. I believe he had it with a mazdaspeed kit just before he sold it...

Don't worry I've been reading it all week long even before I bought my car. I'll probably still make a mistake though. Great forum btw.
