This entry in the great LACar journal in the cloud will be more of an “impression” than a full-out review … my own background (and foreground as well) making it somewhat difficult to view “DIRT” in any sort of a non-partisan light.

Keeping things fresh—it’s a trick that can be difficult. Last year’s Classic Auto Show in LA was fantastic. I went two days in a row, and the second was better than the first, as I detailed for LA Car. At the time, I wondered—would it be the same next year? Not that that would invalidate it, but you know the thing that happens. You go once, you go again, and you realize the third time that you’ve done this enough.

More often than not, we all see things at least a little (and sometimes vastly) differently from each another. Our interpretation of colors, sounds, and even our feelings of cars change based on our age, geographic area, and socio-economic background, just to name a few reasons.

Occasionally, stepping out of our comfort zone and delving into the thoughts of others provides some curious insight. In this case, LACar is peering into the mind of one special 14-year old, Steven Aghakhani.

Zoom-zoom. For automotive enthusiasts the name Mazda is synonymous with this catchy tagline. Like some kind of automotive Rorschach test, the words “Zoom-Zoom” conjure up images of red gen-1 Miata’s carving up roads like 1.5:1 scale go-karts.

Besides the Le-Mans winning Renown Mazda 787B, Miata, and RX-7, I have been preoccupied with other marquees for most of my life. However lately anytime anyone – car fan or not – asks me what kind of car they should get in the sedan or SUV category, I immediately include Mazda. In fact, I must sound like a Mazda fanboy as I go on and on to describe the design renaissance that Mazda is undergoing, the beautiful exterior and interior design that cars like the CX-9 feature, and the sporty driving feel that Mazda focuses on.
