The Wogblogger—now in London—reviews Mazda’s latest MX5, having driven one through France and Spain:
The Mazda is a little mechanical person made by loads of actual folks and designed with mucho care and attention and, likely as not, affection. He has feelings. He does not want to live his life on motorways or doing a school run. He wants forests, and mountains, and all his gears given a good old workout. He wants the novente-ocho perciento unleaded stuff. Oh he can tolerate the blistering heat of a Madrid traffic jam and the howling wind and torrential rainyrain of a French motorway. But he stays in the relationship for the good stuff. The fast hairpin turns, high revs and loud music. Good living.
I think she likes it. Also from the WB, an image simply entitled “A Frenchman”:
No photoshoppery involved.
