Back again (again)

Post by AutomotiveMasochist »

Hi all

I'm Adam, son of former Owners Club member Essex2Visuvesi (Gary). We used to regular the Essex pub meets when he got his PZ when I was 14, and here I am, 10 years later, and still obsessed with these silly little triangle cars. After a couple of years without an RX-8, I've once again found myself back where I started :lol:

Several years ago, I joined the forums as "Punchy", named after my first RX-8, which was in fact my first car, a '07 192 in Velocity Red. Since then, I've owned an '04 231 in Velocity Red as my second car, and I also briefly had an absolute shed of a '07 Silver 231. I'm now in the ownership of a Crystal White '08 40th Anniversary, and decided to jump back on the Forums after initially buying the car end of March '24

As has been the case with all my other RX-8s, it is my only car. No diesel daily to offset the running costs of a thirsty, high-tax bracket Wankel. Am I brave? Possibly. Am I stupid? Probably

Its good to see all the familiar faces again and catch up with everyone :) I'll have to see if I can convince Gary to come along to catch up with everyone. He and my mum are very much getting stuck into Audi TT MK1s now, they've each got one lol. He did want to come to Steve's Sunday meet at Galleywood but sadly, schedules conflicted so he couldn't make it. Maybe the next one in August? :D

Yup, thats my old RX-8! Currently resides in Morecambe, and has just had its second replacement engine after I sold it. Original just randomly died, and then the first replacement hydro locked going through a Ford #-o

Was great meeting you the other day. The fuel economy is definitely worth the noise I reckon.
