Hello from Texas

Hello all,
Been on the mileage quest since the beginning of the year. Glad to find the site, everyone knows their stuff here. I'm more of a bailing wire duct tape guy but the info on the site has been very usefull. Hopefully I'll be able to break the 40 MPG barrier on my test loop this year.

Well from what I see, Casper is a dead ringer for an N600.

Yeah, most cars do aspire to be N600s. Can't blame them

One of my best friends is

One of my best friends is always complaining about he wants his old 626 back. When he was little his folks had this beaten up 626 that they eventually just gave away, but it was his favorite car ever. I need to drive one and see what all the talk is about,

626 is just a solid ride

The 626 is just a solid ride, no flash just good reliable car that will last for a long time. But it does aspire to be the n600 a classic. I'll see if I can find a picture of the white ghost and if I'm able to figure it out I'll post it in the garage.

BTW, welcome. I'm glad to see more variation in the vehicles here -- aren't many Mazdas -- maybe we can use cross-learn techniques between manufacturers. But I agree the 626 is a solid, great handling, effecient sedan. No offense against the "6", but when the 626 left the lineup, we were left with the "3" (smaller), and the "6" -- much bigger and less basic.
