    That guy was pretty awkward and cringe inducing, but yeah he does touch on a few points about how great the handling is and how balanced the car is.

    Just think: A lot of that was comprised of what would be the final take. And then edited. Getting him to properly pronounce words must have been like pulling teeth.

    Something to view when things get a little slow at the office

    0-60 in 7.4 seconds? My plain Jane automatic Mazda6 does 7.5...

    If you think acceleration speed matters in this car then it's not the car for you.

    If you had watched the video I posted, you would've heard the driver say over and over the power was lacking but he LOVED it ANYWAY!

    Is there anything else about your Mazda 6 you'd like to boast about? Tire size? The inline 4? Interior superiority? Sure you have a NICE affordable sports car like the Toyota 86. I almost posted a video that directly compares the 2 cars in a head to head detailed discussion and video between two cars and drivers. It is VERY interesting. And it's funny you brought your Mazda6 into comparrison so quick.

    Maybe you should post why somebody should buy your make of Mazda or just post some cool videos of what you own and love too.

    I hate to say anything good about a BMW M3 convertible I drove to my absolute joy and thrills one afternoon just to have Mazda6 facts thrown onto the thread as a slap down "so what" comments.

    The Scion FR-S aka Subaru BRZ aka Toyota 86 is a car that you have to drive to understand.

    Armchair skeptics on the internet love to trash it's specs like it's low HP and torque rating.

    As I see mentioned on here all the time about audio gear and not worrying about specifications and instead just listening to it, I implore everyone who enjoys sports cars to actually go DRIVE one of these cars before judging it worthless because of it's SPECS.

    Don't feel bad, I laughed too. I'd like to to pics of the warning signs on the roads around that bridge

    I watched a box truck do exactly that one morning. The truck was doing about 25+mph. There were 2 guys in the truck. I saw it coming! I yelled at the truck driver and waved my arms but it was no use. I was on the drivers side of the road standing in a parking area. I wonder if the driver lost his job that day.

    I've seen damage from drivers hitting a top box corner up front on trees branches too. They're usually heavily taped up. :s

    A little mess-up-a-truck action from a different angle.
    Two takeaways for me:

    Where in the **** did they find someone willing to drive the truck??!
    Love how it turned into a Minions movie in short order. :D

    Woah. That does not look like a fun job. That thing got some air!
    Agree on them finding a driver. He must be paid VERY well.

    Or his next of kin gets paid VERY well. I think Dale Earnhart took a similar blow. :s
