Just a brief intro to this project, I think just about every one goes through a phase in which they want a sports car. You can only drive around an economy car for so long right? Maybe it's just an ego thing.
Well in going through my sports car phase, I probably didn't choose the best one but it was still a fun car to drive, a 2004 Mazda RX8.
I knew it wasn't the quickest car out there but felt disappointed when I took it to the drag strip anyway. I know it was mostly due to my inexperience but the best of my two passes was only in the 16s. The car was also a rare find to me, a 2004 RX8 with under 60k miles, in 2014. I was always too afraid of messing it up, I needed something I could have fun in and not always worry about a scratch.
