• Becca, every other car makes your Mazda 4-door sedan look so common and boring. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Mazda is synonym with old people, rational, reasonable, people movers.

      My dad, a total utilitarian who never ever developed a taste for anything that moves, famously had a row of first Fords, then Mazdas, from the middle 60’s onwards. Never really for the cars but always because the dealership was close by our home. I guess he was the only German man who never ever opened the bonnet to have a look at the engine. He never ordered funny colours or any luxury trim and never the top engine neither. Me grew up in an ocean of faceless silvergrey metallic boredom. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      Of course I became a kinda petrolhead. ๐Ÿ˜‰


  1. Why do I find that low v6 sound so lifting. Glad the red sticker went from the windscreen. I’m the bloke that would walk to the edge of the pavement stand still and smile watching your van go by, knowing you would blip the throttle just to see my excitement. Guess IM still a petrol head too

    • Know what, sometimes I do exactly that, “blip” the throttle just for shit and giggles. The other day I saw a bunch of vagrants while I was waiting at a red light and one of them started shouting out: “V8! V8! V8!” Eventhough I only have a V6, put gear into neutral and gave them a couple short bursts. Smiles all around! Unbelievable, when I got Oubaas he had 2 mufflers. Sounded nice enough, but only now sounds like a real beast. I know in Europe I’d have to pay a steep fee for being so loud and people would shout at me, but here in Africa people are happy and smiling when I pass by.

      “Guess IM still a petrol head too”
      It’s a good hobby. Let’s enjoy it as long as possible before they take our toys away and give us self-driving electrical cars and bikes. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
