It’s a sad day but it’s time to part with the Trans Am. I put it up on craigslist tonight. If you’re interested let me know 🙂

The New Driver’s Seat – Mazda Speed 3
As Father Tighe said today “He is risen!” It was a wonderful service this morning and the day is turning out quite well. Happy Easter everyone.
Yes, you read it right. After buying the Mazdaspeed3, I don’t see the need for keeping the Trans Am. A part of me wants to keep it and restore it, but the likelihood of me actually doing it are slim to none. The boys are still little 6 & 4. I’ll be putting it up on eBay this week seems to be a market for not so good 1995 Pontiac Trans Ams.
Tonight I bought a used 2007 Mazda Mazdaspeed3. I finally got the last bit of life out of my 1995 Pontiac Trans Am, 12 years for an American car is great, in my opinion. But then again the one thing American car makers do well is make good V-8’s (not the juice) and it probably would’ve been fine a bit longer if I didn’t have the accident back in 2004.
The Mazda has both performance and practicality, the latter is something the Trans Am had none of. I haven’t driven a different stick shift in a long time so it took a bit of getting used to the Mazdaspeed’s clutch and brakes, very touchy and it moves too.
Here are some pictures (I took them from the dealer’s website):
For more pictures check out my flickr set: 2007 Mazdaspeed3. Ok off to go read the manual to see what all the things can do. Yes I read car manuals, there are a lot of little jewels you can find in them sometimes features you didn’t know the car had.
