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

Anybody who really knows Mazda's knows him and will agree.

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.

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.
