The Story

Got the car for my birthday in 2017, I've never had an interest in cars until I was behind the wheel of this one. I learned pretty early on that the Rx8 was known for its reputation with maintenance and reliability. It was a headache. It always had problems, I still couldn't gap a prius, and then there's always the dreading thought of the apex seals blowing keeping me up at night. Despite all that I very much love this car and community I've become a part of. It's not much, but I'm very proud of the work I've put in and I plan to do even more.
