It depends on the price. If it has a rotary tax on it. Then, no.

I'll explain.
If you go to the autoparts store for a part (that for chevy or honda costs 10 dollars)on an rx7, its $50. Hence, the "Rotary Tax". One more example is the Rx8's price compared to other similar sized cars with more power that cost less. It just doesn't make sense from an economical standpoint.

Yes I would be interested, just don't take away my excitement by taxing it.

General Motors two rotor engine (RC2-206) Book

Renown RE research and development engineer, Mr. Mitchell Swanger of the University of California Berkley is looking for interest in a comprehensive book on the developement of the General Motors two rotor engine (RC2-206).

Back in the Fall of '09 he aquired the "Original" approved Blue Print layout (circa 1973) of the General Motors two rotor engine (RC2-206). This print is complete and original with the "Approval" stamp and date. He is looking to compile a book with history, articles, specs. and of course the engine details. If there is enough interest.

If it goes in favor of continuing, he would bring copies to sell at SevenStock-13 this Fall and be available to discuss good old fashion Rotary info!!

I'd very much like to read Mr. Swanger's book on GM's Wankel two-rotor. My father was in a mechanical trade school around, if not a little before, '73 and was actually able to build and rebuild some rotor-motors through the program he was in. If I were able to read Swanger's book, I'd definitely (force him to--my father, that is--) discuss the differences in Mazda's and GM's design of the engine of that era. I bet it would yield a fascinating conversation.
