This is a story about how ‘The Curse of One-Hundred Thousand Miles’ paid me a visit and gave my car a good working over, and how the awesome people of an automotive internet forum helped me overcome.
I was pretty lazy with this one. Even with the mouth of a Shark the Miata still doesn’t look mean.
This is a story about how something can be right in front of your face the whole time, but you can’t see it because you’re looking for it by a different name...
It’s looking to be about time for the wife to get a new(er) car as the Fusion she has is giving us some problems. We have two kids under 5, so she’s all about getting something safe and practical. Originally she wanted a Subaru Forester (older model) but decided that wasn’t enough space. Then she talked about a…
Picked up a new CX5 for Mrs. Spaceball. 2016.5 Touring. Heated seats and sunroof. First impressions are good.

I think I’ve made that clear several times now. I’ll spare my dislike of them for the rotaries, even if I’ll never own one as I’m terrified of them, and cars like the 929 and first gen MPV. But for the most part, I really don’t like Mazda that much. BUT. I commend them for selling a midsize hatchback in North America.…
I also have some other bad pictures
Brought the car over to the annual Nokia car show (Formerly Alcatel-Lucent). got some good responses, given that this probably is one of the only ones left in the province in decent shape. Not bad for a 23 year old economy car.
Here’s a 2016 Mazda CX5 Touring that just had its black cloth replaced with Ranch Brown leather. I dig it, especially with that light blue exterior.
Mazda was supposed to have a North American luxury brand known as “Amati” launched in 1993 in order to compete with Lexus, Acura, and Infiniti. Though the Amati name is best known for an artisan family that crafted some of the greatest and most prestigious violins in history, it also happens to be an anagram for Miata…
Found this in a forum post dated 2005. No idea if real, but doesn’t look shopped to me.
