I thought the breakdown of vehicles was interesting. Thousands of CX-7s and Mazda3s, only 5 Speed6's.


Mazda to Scrap Cougar Ace Cars

Automotive News reported on December 15, 2006 that Mazda North American Operations will scrap all 4,703 vehicles that were aboard the freighter Cougar Ace when it foundered at sea this year. Read the VehicleVoice story from September WARNING - Beware of Cougar Ace Mazdas. There is also a great comment by a longshoreman who had been on the Cougar Ace and seen the damage.

Previously, Mazda stated it would have engineers evaluate all the vehicles to determine which to scrap or to sell through a used-car program. However, given that the provenance of the vehicles might come into doubt in several years' time, Mazda decided to avoid a potential customer-satisfaction nightmare by scrapping all the vehicles.

The Cougar Ace went into a 60-degree list on its trans-Pacific run in July when its ballast was displaced, but the ship was towed into port and righted. Some of the cargo was under water. Other cars were dry, held in place by their mounts, and showed little visible sign of damage.
"We just couldn't take the risk of there being unforeseen issues down the road," said Mazda spokesman Jeremy Barnes.

"There were two camps of potential buyers. One was, 'Where can I get one cheap?' The others were worried they might get one by accident and weren't going to shop Mazda as a result."
The tally of lost vehicles was 2,475 Mazda3 sedans, 329 Mazda3 five-doors, 56 Mazda5 minivans, 1,329 CX-7 crossovers, 214 RX-8 sports cars, 5 MazdaSpeed6 sedans and 295 MX-5 Miata convertibles.

Although maritime insurance is a relatively convoluted process, the main insurer of the cargo was industry conglomerate ACE Ltd., based in Hamilton, Bermuda.

Doctor weaning you off your medication today?

This is the Mazda6 club, right? And there were no Mazda6's other than Speed6's. I posted in the Mazdapeed6 section. See the connection?

This was the first article with an exact breakdown of what was on the boat. Get it?

Up your dose...please.

You know, I usually don't say anything about threads like this, but I have to this time.


The Mazda forums appear to be very clicky....if you're not in the 'click', you get responses like this...almost like you need to have a pretty high post count to be 'accepted'.

Now, granted, maybe he should have searched, but a simple "This was already posted....here's the link" would have shut this thread down without name calling, insults, etc.

Other vehicles I've had, and visiting there forums, were more 'family-oriented'.....if you owned that vehicle, you were in the 'family'. This one appears, as I said, very clicky.

It's sad.....there's a lot of info I find out about my car....things I want to ask, try, etc, but feel like I'm going to get obliterated if I open my mouth. I have to spend and hour searching....even for the stupidest stuff, just to make sure it's ok to post it. In the end, whether I find it or not, I'm pretty much over even posting it....info that could be helpful...or not.

Just an observation.

speedzoom and sbspeed you both have a low post count and are relatively new members so dont get on people here like that. This is a civilized forum. Dont be getting on dragon saying to get a real car. Im pretty sure 90% of the people on this forum have a car just like his so you just shot urself in the back. Dont say shit like that its very rude.

Who gives a rats @ss about post counts?

It's not the quantity of posts but the quality. Hell, I could have 1000+ posts if I replied to every post +1

btw - I changed my name a while ago since I moved and the old name didn't make sense - I would have probably close to 34-35 million posts if I had combined the two - so that pretty much makes me a posting God and better than everyone else, eh? ;)
