Show us your Car!

Post by brix79 » Sun Aug 04, 2019 11:55 am

There are seperate colour threads for this already, but I thought it would be cool to see folks cars in one place.
To keep it flowing, no more than 2 pics each please. :thumright:

There is a chance we may want to use pictures posted here in future, for Club things that need pics. I'm not leading with that as it's not the primary function for this thread right now, but can hopefully prove useful. 8)

Thank you! The designers loved symbolism on this car, especially with all the rotor shapes everywhere. I like to think it was intentional on their part :D

Either that or they just wanted to make another smiley face. With the lights as the eyes, the badge as the nose and the reg plate as the mouth :lol:

I don't know this to be true, however I believe this is actually a subtle nod to the development and evolution of the RX7s.

If you look at the rear of the FB RX7 the rear lights, when on, formed 2 rectangles with the reflector in the middle. When the FB came along this had evolved to 2x circles or spots, which was a very common design in JDM cars of the era (which continues in many up to today). If you look at the evolution of the RX8 tails, it follows that pattern of beginning with a single spot and then evolving to the series 2 with 2 circles side by side.

As said, I could be reading in to things a little more, perhaps it was just a way for the designers to incorporate another nod to the RX7 FC/FD or perhaps there was a little more to it.

I do agree, however, they look great.

EDIT: Apologies for the thread de-rail, to keep it on track here's my 2 pics :D

After way too long a break caused by way too much work and no play at all, it’s great to be able to say hi again!

Some lovely-looking 8’s on display, all looking super-well looked after ...

Here’s mine at about 115,000 miles now; barely run in. Sorry about the stupid copyright notice, I can’t work out how to get rid of it #-o

Josh and the guys at Rotary Revs have been working hard to update the brakes (big thanks there :thumright: ) and Cheryl’s too on the MX5.

We finally cracked the bicycle brakes on the rear problem. :D
