There's alot of sketchy stuff going on with shipping these days. All it takes is one greedy bad actor to lay eyes on your widget while in transit and they can make it 'disappear'. A bunch of stuff disappears in California, Chicago, and the NYC metro areas. The people who stole your engine probably didn't know how rare or valuable your 4-rotor was and did not realize why selling it on ebay would be a dead give away.

Last time I shipped something through them I remember them saying "if it's damaged in shipping then we'll cover that but, we won't cover it if it's lost unless you pay the insurance". It amazed me that I had to pay extra incase they lost it.

UPS did the same to me, I sold a 88 keys synthesizer (with piano keys). They lost it for 3 weeks. The buyer didn't want it anymore, they sent it back to me and when I opened the box it was destroyed, keys everywhere! UPS didn't want to pay for insurance nor insurance, Paypal either. I had to end up like Mr. Miyagui putting everything together, glue back every key, rebuilt the wood that was broken and so on. I sold it to a guy later on.

I'm curious...where does the average guy get the money to do these crazy things? Did rob work a normal job and skimp and save every last penny he had to get this done the old-fashioned way? Or did he have the resources to do this? This is the first time I've heard of Rob so pardon my ignorance.

I had an RX-8. It looks like to me the "finished" car in this video was an RX-8 rather than a RX-7. Am I incorrect about this? Regardless, being a mechanical engineer and a former RX-8 owner (which I now regret), this is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. An awesome achievement! I am soooo jealous!

Anyone who has experience shipping with UPS, FedEx, and USPS can tell you UPS is vastly more reliable with their handling of packages. FedEx has piles of incidents of missing ammunition in recent years and USPS has lost 30% of packages and registered mail I've sent in recent years. As far as a big litigation all the KGglobal legal experts recommend, good luck with the fees on it. A day in court would cost as much as the loss.

Great story, my first (and only) rotary experience was with a Mazda Cosmo in 1979. I traded a non running 340 duster for it. It became part of my 3 car fleet and I ran the crap out of it until 2 years later it literally melted down. I was a senior in high school at the time, without the funds or desire to rebuild it I sold the strange little car to a junk yard for $100.00

A shop I just left did the same thing to customers, the owner told me flat out that his goal was to milk every last cent from the customer by dragging things out and always being just a few weeks away. On my end I was livid as he would take me off a job I was nearly done with to start another and did it multiple times forcing even more hours for me to get back in the groove once Im put back on. Im now unsurprisingly dealing with getting a few months of salary that he didnt pay and Im considering contacting the IRS about what hes doing.

What a crazy story the fact that they wouldn't refund your shipping until you backed them into a corner and left them no option is crazy? The shipping companies have gotten so big and so powerful they have begun to operate outside of any normalcy or common sense. Wild ..... LOL, keep telling your story it must drive them crazy!

Actually the 787b was a 4 rotor also you gotta suck at street racing if you lose to an r35 when you got 300 hp over him plus you have better handling the gtr is heavy as shit if you did drag racing then that’s your mistake rx7 is a handling car not straight line if your gonna street race do it for real not that bullshit light to light crap

I don't have a good friend in the Michigan state Police. I also don't have 800,000 followers. But I do have $8000 dollars less in my bank account because I hired your buddy Elliot White from Turblown to rebuild my project RX8. After him having my engine for a year and constant excuses why it's taking so long I get it back. The engine was destroyed after one summer following break in procedure to the T. I reached out to him multiple times and was ghosted. I found another builder to take my engine to after a few months. Upon tear down we found my old rotor housings were reused though I was charged for new ones. The ceramic coated engine internal package he sold me had failed and the ceramic chunks destroyed all of my engine internals. Causing the bearings to seize on my e-shaft and my rotors to impact the housings. I reached out again with pictures and was again ghosted. After posting all the info with pictures on the rx8 club forum I finally got a response months later. I was told to ship the engine back (which I was told to pay for) and he would rebuild it. I told him that I can't ship the engine back because it's already been rebuilt. All I have is 2 destroyed rotors, 2 destroyed housings, a destroyed E-shaft, and a box of miscellaneous bits. I had asked that he maybe help cover some of the cost of the extensive rebuild. And again I'm ghosted to never hear from him again. It's been 6 years or so now and I still have a box of engine bits. I'm glad you got some form of justice but I've accepted that I won't because I'm not wealthy or famous. I was just a poor college kid that grew up in a trailer park in Flint Michigan living off welfare that worked hard to earn enough money to build his dream car.

I have always been a fan of the Wankel rotary engine. The last gen rx-7 is my favorite of all the Japanese sports cars. The 3000gt/GTO would be second but the rotary engine just makes me drool. I have only built one custom car. It would be considered a very dumb build. The biggest thing I learned was build it beyond desired needs so everything works properly and holds up to desired level.
