Light rain today in NYC... Somebody asked me to drive them to Westchester County, about 50 miles away. On the way home, I was cruising along in New Jersey, thinking about how great my new 6 is, when I realized I had missed my exit by about 10 miles! So I turn around and head home.

Then I get closer to home, and a WRX driver whips around me and gives me the :thumbup

When I'm almost home, on a bridge, a 626 with what appeared to be a family inside comes along side and they are all smiling, looking at the 6. The girl sitting in the backseat gave me a big :D My apologies, I just had to comment about what a pleasure this car is to drive.

The feeling seems universal, best looking car on the road, where ever you live.

That's high praise! Especially coming from Australia, which is graced with the presence of Holdens....

Blech......I see that those nim-wits at Pontiac are taking a Holden, putting the same fugly grille as the Grand-Am and Grand Prix on it and have the nerve to call it "GTO". I don't know what Bob Lutz is smoking, but that just don't cut it.
Talk about lack of style. At least the Firebird had style. The Holden GTO looks like a jelly bean with the same boring Pontiac grille that they have used for a decade. And they pay their designers how much? Sorry for the off-topic rant, but I find the new GTO insulting to my sense of style. At least Ford was able to jump on the retro-band wagon the Daimler Chrysler started and made the Thunerbird look good despite being woefully under powered.


God, I am so glad I got my Mazda6! :D Now that's a car!

I got three complements on my car yesterday. I had just washed it and it looks great! As soon as I get the photos developed i'll scan and post them. Anyway, I was at an ATM and three people in the car parked next to me asked me how I liked my car. Of course I told them it's awesome. A couple minutes later, the dude at the cashier window at Taco Bell complemented me on my car. Then later at night when I stopped to get gas, the dude at the other side of the pump inquired. The car looks great when it's clean! I love it! So much fun to drive.

Oh, and I had some hottie chickie chasing me in her Mustang GT yesterday for about 20 miles or so. Kinda fun... ;)

I always check out rusted old pieces of shit going down the road, do you think they feel special? ;)

Yep, i too have gotten plenty of good comments on the car. Everyone at school thinks its cool; the girls think its "cute" and so did my prom date (she was thrilled about my car). She sat in my car for a half an hour playing with everything and listening to music. Of course, i sat in it too, but in the passenger seat. My other friends think the car is preety cool too. Also, a girl that i was racing pulled up and said the car was nice....while noticing the V6 badge. Man, i LOVE this car....i'm so glad i made the right decision.

I think the blue looks dead sexy, I've seen a couple of blue ones with sport packs driving around the Brea area in Orange County, CA... anyone here?

P.S. go for the dark grey over the silver

Yeah, I agree, I think the blue looks the best. of course, I may be biased since I have a blue one :)

Anywho, I walked out of work last night towards the parking lot. I saw 5 people standing around my car lookiung at it and talking. At first I was worried something had happened to it, but when I got there they just wanted to take a look inside, and go for a test drive :)
