Zoom, Zoom, Zoom!

Don't get me wrong, I love my Suburban, my old GMC pickup, and my sexy Dodge Cummins, but they all get pretty lousy gas mileage - some worse than others. For a while now, I've been wanting a little car to run around in. But not just any car - a car that gets KILLER gas mileage. I've been shopping online for months and found one that was the size I wanted, the price range we could afford, and best of all - a 4 cylinder with a standard transmission.

I prefer to drive a standard, but they're getting kind of hard to find. Most of them are Hondas, Toyotas, Nissans, etc. Which is fine by me since those are all good cars. Well, this one I found is a Mazda. It's really clean and well maintained.

We had to go to Pleasant Grove to get it so we made a trip of it to see Grandma for Mother's Day and buy the car at the same time.

Just before we left my mom's, I filled the gas tank. We went 207 miles to the next time we gassed up, and I put 5 gallons back in it. That's

40 miles to the gallon, people!!

And it's a blast to drive - zippy and sporty and handy in the turns. I'm totally lovin' it.

So if this car was a horse, what type of horse would it be....? Maybe a little flea-bitten gray Arabian that does a lot of endurance riding.

... yeah, I'm weird.
