Default Now all Zoom Zoom family.

Some/all/none have seen my red vmounted turbo track miata. A few have seen my blue/purple one that is getting some "random" motor swap. No one has really seen the new Mazda that followed us home yet, so I figured a mini thread to update.

The white one followed the wife and I home this weekend.

Can see the red one living on jackstands in the back... what can I say... I've been F'ing lazy.


Haven't gotten through a tank of gas so far and having picked it up with 7 miles, no beating on it. So far though it has been great, very nimble, great steering feel, awesome brakes (11.8F/11R), even partial throttle it wants to Zoom Zoom . Basically a great commuter for the wife... with room for baby seats down the road.... and an all weather trunk tray so I can lug motors and **** around.

Lol, it never got garage space. Well for a day when I pulled the drivetrain. It'll spend LOTs of time once I start on the project destined for it though.

I see a hidden gem there in the back

Can't decide how I feel about the 3s, although I'm sure if I poked around one for a bit I'd like it. Congrats on the new car. I think my future holds only mazdas for bit.

I really like 3's with the exception of the grill. Why the hell did Mazda think they needed the grill to look like a huge gawping smile? They should have made it look mean, not giddy.

Not so much F off if you had to make a lame excuse about weather or whatever. Try harder next time.

I think I'll put them back up this weekend.

Need to see if I can find some nice multi-color ones to frame more of the house.

Hows that for another useless catch phrase?

I wonder if your 108 other posts are as awe inspiring.
Possibly more so than kenzo with his mods list of nothing installed.
