How do you say REPU?

Ok, I know this is a stupid question and I almost feel like I am wasting bandwidth, but tt just hit me that I may have never heard anybody else say REPU in my life. I want to make sure I don't sound like an idiot when I say it. Any way, I have been saying ree-poo, is this right?
thanks for tolerating me :)

I've always pronounced each letter because ree-poo sounds kinda dumb. Or I call it a rotary truck.

I've just gone with Reepoo. Its an acronym, I assume the purpose was to shorten the name for ease of use, and Are-Eee-Pee-You just doesn't do the job, so I pronounce it as a word, as silly as it sounds.

So far 4 out of 5 REPU owners call their truck a ree-poo, I guess I won't feel so dumb next time I say that then.

sorry slow response...Around the bay area, at least with my group of rotor heads it is "rotary truck". REPU was something in the parts books...ReePoo? Hmmm kinda strange...Rotary truck is self explainitory, there's only one kind in the world from what I know...(stick foot in mouth here)...

Great topic though!!!

I think "Ree-Poo", but I speak "Rotary Truck" as every person I speak with wouldn't have a clue what I am talking about. I am a solo Mazda enthusiast here, and anyone I talk verbally with has never heard of a "REPU" so why use the acronym? They would just way "Huh" anyway. And online, its "REPU" cause it is just a word to us.

Haha, every time I think this thread is dead it comes back. On a related note, what does everybody call the truck when they go to the DMV to get it registered or to Checker to get a brake rebuild kit or something? I was at Midas to get a cat for it just so I would pass emissions. When he asked what it was I told him it is a '74 Mazda rotary pick-up. Then he asked if it is a b1600 or what. I convinced him that a new entry was needed for REPU in the computer. When I finally went down to get it titled the person giving the inspection asked what it was, I told her rotary engine pick-up. I dont know what happened after that but my new title says make, model and body style are Mazda, Rotar, PU. I just hope that doesnt ever cause me problems in the future. The inspector asked me if it is really slow because it doesnt have any pistons, lol.

being a person who works for a parts store, it is classed in our parts database as the B1600, and you have to choose the "0 cyl 1.3L Rotary engine".

0 cyl...I LOVE it!!!

So who classified it as a B-1600? Those never came with the 0-cylinder engine... Makes me wonder how many other (mis)classification variations there are hiding out there...

hey guys,
my first post on the board, and downunder, we would have to refer to them as 'some Mazda ute with a 13B' (we commonly refer to pickups as utes over here) for that matter, any tray backed vehicle is usually a ute.

anyways, you'll see me asking around the tech section.. new project, B-series + rotor is a definite possibility for me. :)
