    Got my baby back from heart transplant

    Well she's all done. Got her new engine put in to her. I missed my Mag so much it isn't even funny. At first the gave me a PT Loser. That car was so freakin slow....OMG. Then they gave me a Mazda 6. LEt me tell you that car is quick. I didn't mind that car much but I'm over the whole "small Car" thing. I'm just glad to have her back!!! I took a pic of her after I got out of school.

    World's first tuned V6 LX!!

    Hey congrats! Glad to see they did right by you.

    The Mazda 6 is a pretty nice car. I actually looked at 6 wagons back when I was out shopping, but they were kind of expensive. The Mag is a better deal for less $$, IMO.

    I would never take any of those cars over the Mag. It's times like this that you learn to appreciate your LX...

    I was considering a Mazda 3 Hatchback before buying the Magnum. But I've never owned anything but American and not sure I could go to a 4 banger after having a V-6 in my last 3 cars. They are nice little cars though from what I've heard.

    The Mazdaspeed 6 is a freakin rocket too. Amazing what loosing a few hundred (okay more than a few) pounds can do for making a car feel fast and handle well right off the showroom floor...
