A few weeks ago my cousin, Kathy Magee, posted an old photo on FB of me standing beside my new Mazda RX-7 parked on her parent’s farm. Dave Murra is in the background. In my twenties with a permed head of hair, one of my fondest memories is explaining the features of this unusual vehicle to my uncles and cousins. “It’s got a rotary engine,” I remember telling them, and “The RPMs go to over 10,000. It’s like piloting a boat on a lake with no wind, in total calm – like glass.”
Little did I know then, but the attraction to unique and special automobiles would become a lifelong obsession and have a major impact on my life. Being attracted to and acquiring cars struck a chord somewhere inside of me, in some ways defined me. Other than my 1969 Lotus Elan, no car has been more impactful than Acura’s NSX. Following is the story of my involvement with the NSX. The story begins in the early 1990s and continues through to today, 2022. Follow this link to get the full story with all the pictures and the ability to jump around to the good parts. Think about posting a reply at the end if you happen to recall any of this.
