Where I saw one: Getting on the 51 today.
Nostalgia Value: 5/10
Baseline: 0 – I never owned one.
+1 for being a Ford-badged Mazda. Way better than being a Ford-badged Kia. +1 because I almost bought one, after my Festiva suffered it’s critical ass implosion, +1 for orange dash lights, +1 for not burning to the ground the night I set one on fire, +1 because Dribble crashed hers under a semi, mooting the fact that I torched a brand new car while hammered on gasoline/everclear cocktails.
I nearly bought one, then the future Mrs. talked me into a Suzuki Swift instead. What the FUCK was i thinking. (Besides “indulge the GF and get laid”)?
