Review of My 2006 Mazda 3s

The car was new to me towards the end of 2009 as I was off to college. Leaving Utah for Montana I attached a ski rack and snow tires with studs to get me through the Missoula winters (up there they don’t salt the roads so snow can remain on the streets for days after a storm). The car was a silver 5-speed manual. I tinted the windows near black, de-badged the car, and painted the front “M” black. The license plate read “Malarky” as an ode to a nickname of mine from my time playing high school sports. I thought I was cool, and I thought my car was a cool extension of myself. I wasn’t entirely wrong, this vehicle provided more than I would have expected for the last 8 years.
