New to Denver from Indiana

Postby SecondGenPAt » Sun Apr 17, 2011 9:14

Well Hello Hello.

Pat here, moved to Denver about 6 months ago from Fort Wayne Indiana for work.
Bought my RX-7 3 years ago as 3 other good friends had them and made the mistake of letting me drive them.
I was hooked. I'll be a Rotard for life.

Car:
1987 RX7 base 2+2
I'm the second owner with 132,000 miles on it now. original engine/trans/diff and most other components.
Plan is to keep it nice and do a full restoration when time and checkbook permits.

Me:
dyed in the wool car-guy.
love wrenching (it's what I do for a living at Murray BMW)
love driving even more (I own an RX7, don't know how to make that clearer)
Plan to do some autocrossing and HPDE days if I'm not sacrificing my Saturdays at work.

anything Else, just ask.

My mom just bought a CPO 528XI there, was really pleased with the experience- car is a blast (for a large slushbox AWD anyway...)

Several of us here are really active in the local SCCA SOLO program- rmsolo.org Anything you need, just ask, glad to help!
BMWCCA also runs a great program that allows non- BMWs if you get a BMWCCA membership

Autocrossing is a blast and should be done regularly by all car enthusiasts :) Come to an event!

Saw you driving home on Colorado Blvd. I was that kid in the Pebble Ash 6 that looked over and nodded :) Good looking 7 man.
