Jastreb's 2009 Mazda Rx-8, "Isabella"

After a long period of not having a car and driving borrowed slushboxes, I'm finally back to driving something proper.

That was quick! I thought people would guess more before someone got the right answer. :)

Oh, and I'm definitely coming to the meet. And for real this time... not the 1 day deal like last time.

Your handbrake is serious business. Love the baseball stitching.

Very nice. We gotta see some pics of the exterior! Is it the newest generation? I like the cool little heel-toe section of the gas pedal.

Thanks! Yes, it's the new generation. Here's a not great exterior pic. New camera, haven't figured out how to take good pictures at night....

The only excuse for getting that car with a slushie is if you really love rotaries and you have a medical condition that prevents you from using the clutch.
