Last week we reported that Mazda had officially released pictures of the forthcoming 2014 Mazda3 hatchback, and we here at Mazda3carpet.com couldn’t be happier with what Mazda has created. They have truly done it again and created a class defining new standard for all other automakers to play catch up with. Continue reading
In the city of Cixi in Zhejiang Province a local guy who clearly had more time on his hands and balls than most decided to take his first generation Mazda3 and well… lets put it this way: If West Coast Customs ever decides to start a franchise in China, they should perhaps steer clear of this guy.
Now a local hero, the man behind the radical ricing job began by lobbing off the roof and removing two of the doors. A fat body kit was then added along with Lambo-style scissor doors making the Mazda almost unrecognizable from any angle, save the front end. Inspiration for the ass end came from the Lamborghini Diablo.
Finally, the interior was given a complete overhaul (none of our Premium Moulded Carpet Kits were sacrificed in the making of the Platypus of the car world) and comes equipped with an assortment of LCDs, speakers and other gadgets that are as distracting for the driver as the car is for other drivers on the road; especially when those multi-colored headlights are flicked on.
The only thing I have every personally seen that comes close to looking as hideous as this thing would have been any late 80’s early 90’s Honda Accord cruising the streets of Scarborough, Markham or Brampton.
Many people don’t realize that Mazda has a heritage museum connected to their factory in Hiroshima, Japan. Unfortunately most of us will never get the opportunity to visit it. Luckily Mazda and Google have partnered together to take Google Street View into the Mazda Heritage Museum for a virtual tour. Below is the press release from Mazda.
Fans of everything Zoom-Zoom can now save a significant chunk of money: instead of flying to Japan to visit the Mazda Museum in Hiroshima, Mazda aficionados can now “tour” the museum virtually. The museum has been added to Google Street View, allowing anyone with an Internet connection to see all of the displays.
The Mazda Museum is divided into several sections, most of which are visible online. The entrance hall leads to the history wing, which features classic vehicles and other displays showing Mazda innovations since 1920. Another area is dedicated to the Mazda rotary engine, famous for its role in sports cars like the RX-7 and RX-8.
The museum’s technology hallway shows off various engines and details the assembly process for all new Mazda products. Finally, the future wing shows concept cars and other explorations of future Mazda vehicles. The only areas unavailable on Google Street View are the gift shop and the observation deck that looks out on a Mazda production line.
Of course, visiting the Mazda Museum in person is the only way to read the signs that go along with each display, or to receive one of the guided tours. Nonetheless, browsing the collection virtually is significantly cheaper and can be accomplished from the comfort of one’s own home… or office.
We have always made samples of our carpet available to anyone who asked us. It was a bit of a pain in the ass to drive to the post office, fill out the customs paperwork, and have the sample measured and mailed out. It was all manual and very time consuming.
But we love our customers and Continue reading
No matter how great a car is, as enthusiasts we are always looking for a way to make our rides better and unique. After some thinking I came up with three classification of modifications one can perform on their cars.
The first classification are modifications we perform that may look good, but make the car worse (eg lowering your Mazda 3 without swapping out struts). The second classification, may look awful, but do offer some sort of sensible function (eg universal floor mats, mud flaps). Continue reading
