    Sucks that it got wrecked. My old Mazda wasn't much to look at, or to drive, but I was right pissed when it got totaled.

    Console yourself with the Subie's cornering instead.

    I will when I get back to the states and can afford a house. People want an arm and a leg for these things that don't even have matching numbers. All the parts inside mine are mostly new. I'd just have to find a body that's in decent shape that I could paint and transfer all the parts to :(

    Did your state at the time have a crime of passion law?

    wait, it's texas, you probably could have killed the person that hit you and probably not get charged.

    Hehe, true. Couldn't afford wheels as a poor high school/college kid. Had to spend the $$ on two engine rebuilds instead. The cam bearings weren't sized right on the first build and sent shavings into the oil system. Got everything straightened out about a year later. I had plans to eventually do something like below, but I guess that'll be a distant future project. I'll probably go hard top next time.

    OUCH! I literally went, "oooooooo" when I saw the bottom pictures. That's painful to look at. :(

    My grampa and uncle built a very similiar Firebird 400 convertible. Beautiful car.

    I gots to defend deusex here- it sucks when a car you love gets wrecked for shitty reasons.

    We appreciate the Pontiac, but that doesn't lessen how shitty deusex felt when the car he loved (the Mazda) got whacked for (presumably) crappy reasons.

    It's a legit comparison.

    He's an idiot, but don't make the same mistakes he does by flaming him when he has a valid point.

    I didn't compare my old Mazda to the OP's thefuckyacallit. I compared the experience of my car getting wrecked to his car getting wrecked. I spent weeks of my spare time (and basically all of what little money I had) keeping that car in the best shape possible (cars don't last seventeen years by themselves) and then it got killed by a teenage girl who was paying more attention to her passenger than the road. Drove up the wrong side of the damn road and hit the car while it was parked. So I figure I kinda feel the guy's pain.

    Reading comprehension > you.

    if you can't see the difference between your mazda, and a classic firechicken... then i don't know what to tell you.

    i understand you are trying to compare the feelings of both, but there is only one way any mazda could compare(even in feelings)... it was your first car, you lost your virginity in it, a family member who is dead passed it on to you, and someone famous signed it... even if all of those did take place, it's still just almost the same... any mazda can simply be replaced, a classic muscle car takes blood sweat a tears... and drums up feelings, that no mazda can create.

    reality>you

    i was just trying to make a funny, the fact that he finally made a soild point doesnt justife the rest of his crap, but i was more or less just commenting on him over all, not just this topic.

    it's not that i don't understand his point... i'm just pointing out, other ways for him to look at it... the mazda is nothing to be heartbroken about(sorry, i didn't get attached to every car i have owned... just the ones that are justified.)... i mean he's alive(i assume, with no long lasting effects.), and any mazda can be replaced easily(wrecks happen... you can either let them bother you, or you can move on.)... actually, it would have been a lot easier to swallow... had he left out it was a mazda.:o
