Woke up feeling a bit sore as I went hard in the paint(literally, I think, I was playing basketball) at the ymca Thursday and then ran strong all week on the treadmill.
My MX-5, henceforth known as White IV, has been relieved of daily duties, which are now being ably handled by RAD-740 (aka Drift Fridge).

As far as the car scene goes, it honestly feels like time is running out. Autonomous cars march ever closer, automakers are obsessed with pumping out ever blander crossovers, and stocks of 90s JDM metal aren’t going to last us forever.
What do you get? Let me show you. I did some projects today, and looked back on where my happy little roadster started. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to not have a Miata, guys.
In Japan, you can get a brown manual diesel Mazda Atenza wagon with the rear wheels driven (in addition to the front wheels, but still) for about 3.4 million yen out the door, apparently.
Debuting at the 2002 Tokyo Auto Salon, the Mazda Cosmo 21 was a concept based on the NB Miata chassis, with the Renesis 13b out of the RX-8. So about as close as we ever got to a factory rotary powered Miata. Personally I find it Too busy for my tastes but I’m kinda happy this exists. But eventually the Miata Coupe…
Even with the upgrades to the 5, 3 cars is a bit much. The Yaris is a great beater, but I’m not really certain I need a rallycross specific car either, although the highway mpgs are decent for road trips (33-35mpg @80, much less than its EPA rating though).
This will be, apparently, Mazda’s future approach to in-car screens.
Earlier this year I bought a 17-year-old orange Mazda6 sedan on a whim, because I loved the color, and already had a Mazda6 that was a year older and 12k miles more worn. The color never fails to make me smile, she’s in good shape, and passed the state inspections no problem, and has no quirks that aren’t easily…
I spent $3000 on my MX-5, and it’s done almost 400,000 km.
My friend is very much not a car enthusiast, being a fan of an automatic gearbox like some sort of heathen. That aside, they want a fun hatchback under $15,000 AUD.
Four or five months ago my friends were announcing pregnancies and family members were making solid life choices. I boldly proclaimed to my apathetic dog how I single handedly fixed my neighborhood. After months of hard labor I, and I alone have restored my neighborhood’s good name. On an unassuming Saturday…
i like it.
I’m thinking about trading in my 09 Mini Cooper S with 95K miles for the Mazda 3s that has around 60K miles costs around $11800. Should I do it?
I like Mazdas but I’m wondering if other brands do zoom-zoomy stuff too. Questions like “what’s the Miata of Germany” or “which American company has the best zoomosity level” come to mind.
