2006 Mazdaspeed 6

In Japan, it’s known as the Atenza. In Europe it’s known as the Mazda 6 MPS.
In my driveway, it’s known as Fujin (Japanese god of the wind), and I LOVE this car. It’s got the perfect blend of practicality, power, safety and luxury that I was looking for, and there are VERY few that meet my stringent criteria. Other models I was considering were the Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT, Audi A4 2.0t, Mitsubishi Lancer EVO VII, Subaru STI, and the Infinity G35x, but for some reason I …

The guy who won’t pull UP:

Driving pet peeves #1

This is the first installment of a series I will be posting on driving pet peeves.  Haven driven all over the US in most of the 50 States, I firmly believe we have the WORST overall drivers right here in sleepy little Colorado Springs.  The. Absolute.  WORST.  Barring third-world and emerging countries, it is my opinion that the sheer idiocy and inconsiderate-ness (is that even a word?) level here is higher than just about any other city, in any other state. �
