I’m loving this MBX Road Trip series of cars. This 2002 is one of my favorites, but it wouldn’t be surprised if they top it. And it’s nice to see a Mazda that isn’t a Miata or RX-7, even if it is an SUV; I’m not going to hold my breath for an affordable Premacy.

At first I was thinking that I was disappointed that there weren’t as many great models like these when I was a kid, then I realized that I wouldn’t have been able to afford as many as I buy these days, they might have been painted or modified instead of left original, or worst case (like a lot I no longer have) given away. This is a golden age we’re living in.
