    Mazda Rotary Nut but a little slow(lazy) USA

    Hello Y'all,

    I am realtively new to this forum but not to my passion. There are few of you probably more than I realize that know me from other forums. I go by several names depending on which ones are already taken.

    Rotarydude ---- Ebay, Rx7 & Rx8 clubs, Mazda REPU forum
    Rotarydave ---- Vintage Rotaries, Rotary car club and here
    Sgt Dave ---- Any with a connection to Atkins rotary or most sevenstock guys
    Dad ---- To the most important ones my daughters and wife(they me get away with my little problem)
    David Meditz ----- Facebook
    email ---- Rotarydave(at)aol.com I think you can figure it out

    Owner ---- Rotary Ranch, home for wayward, neglected and abandoned Mazdas (primarily rotary but accept boingers on a trial basis) 12,000 sq ft shop located on 3.5 acres in Cibolo, Texas.

    My Collection(the cars) --- Rx-pectations (needed a catchy name)
    R100/1200/1000, 4 coupes (R100 all, 2 resto in progress, 1 ex drag, 1 wreck), 1 wagon, 1 pickup(ute)
    Rx2, 2 coupes (1 ex SCCA GT-3, 1 wrecked)
    Rx3, 6 coupes (1 ex SCCA ST-2, 6 resto projects), 1 sedan, 3 wagons
    Rx4, 3 coupes (serial numbers 86 & 96, 1 modified) 3 Wagons
    Cosmo, ?? (More than anyone person should be allowed to own, including a J-Spec AP 120)
    Rotary Pickup 8+ (at least one of each year)
    Rx7 S1, 3 RHD savannas, #33, #88, + siginifcant others
    Rx7 S2-3, 2 custom convertibles (one a real pacific avatar), Custom widebody
    Rx7 S4-5, 2 88 10th AE, Several Verts, Other Misc

    My Collection (Literature)
    Owners Manuals complete set of rotarys for each model and year up to Rx8
    Factory Service Manuals - nearly complete up to Rx8
    Service Bulletins - Upto 1992
    Wiring Diagrams - Complete upto Rx8
    Parts Manuals - Book and Microfiche from Cosmo 110s through S6 Rx7
    Sales Literature - US nearly all up to Rx8 and some Rx8, Foreign large amount but no idea on total compared to actual issue.
    Press Packets - About half from 1970- 1985
    Posters - A bunch of them

    This doesn't account for all the parts, toys or memorbilia.

    Don't get me wrong this is a 20 year collection (obsession) My wife says at least I am cheating with a car and not another woman. But don't let her fool you she works on them as much as I do. How deep in this are we as a family? WELL my daughters dogs are named Savanna and Cosmo. And I am the self proclaimed High Priest of the Holy Order of the Wankel.

    Thanks in advance for accepting me into your awesome community and I hope I can be a good steward for the marque

    Dave is a great bloke who really loves his Mazda's and has one of the biggest collections I know of anywhere. :wink:
    Anybody who really knows Mazda's knows him and will agree.

    answer to no pics

    Thanks for the vote of support and confidence Clayton and Bern. I should expect this type of reaction after all I myself have doubted the veractiy of claims elsewhere. How often is it that someone busts into a forum and claims to have a horde and then turns out to be nothing of the sort.

    PLUS this is the fun part backing it up.

    The rotary ranch and shop from google earth

    inside room that contains R100s,1200 wagon, several rx3s, all the savannas, 10ae, 1000 pu

    Data plates for early Rx4s and Rx7s




    Cosmo AP and R100(under cover)

    Some of the Lit in office

    Is that enough for now

    Thanks for the great comments.

    Ben if you went to 7-stock 2 years back the door was actually displayed there and it now has signatures from 2 of the original 3 drivers and 1 of the original crew chiefs. I am still trying to get Walt Bohren to sign it but he is out of the country.
