I drove a CX-5 -- the first of the SkyActiv cars available in Canada. I was really impressed. I didn't thing a tall wagon CUV thing could be so engaging.

Cool, I was going to post about this later. The song is what makes the ad IMO.

"I'm a roadrunner baby and you'll never catch up with me."

Is that Muddy Waters they show briefly?

I'm not getting tired of this Fiat commercial, although this original version is much better than the G-rated one they're airing now. I'd love to know what she's saying in English. Nevermind- found it:

What are you looking at? Uh!?
What are you looking at?! (slap)
Are you undressing me with your eyes?
Poor guy…you can’t help it?
Is your heart beating? Is your head spinning?
Do you feel lost thinking that I could be yours forever?

I just moved MY MAZDA to get the 911 out for a drive.

Of course I spent all morning doing sissy work like mowing the grass and replacing the bark chips around the house.

Mike, there isn't any place to play after they throw you out of here, so play nice.




Oh, and on topic, I would be very happy with a Miata that got 40 MPG.

VERY Happy.

So, at 0:04, the shift lever on the 60s car appears to be in PARK?

+1 on the Fiat commercial...nicely done.

Mazdas are for girls and sissies huh?

Must be a lot of girls and sissies out racing

That woman in the Abarth commercial is so very smokin' hot.

Theres a guy around here with an older RX-7 that would probably smoke your cars.

talk about over-kill - that's all Speed played yesterday every 1.5 minutes during the 1 hour 20 min rain delay at Malaysia.
I used to like the commercial a bunch - mostly for Mr. Diddley's licks, but now - not so much
