Saving the planet

You may remember seeing a few of these on the roads, it's a Mazda MX6. I bought a used one in 1998 when global warming propaganda was ramping up. A pleasant drive, with its 2.5 litre v6 doing about 28mpg. It was my way of saving the planet. 

Smooth and reliable, I commuted to work in it every day for about eight years. You still see one or two on the roads today.

Yeah, but how did you get away with driving without number plates?

Mark - driving through Nottingham, who would notice?

I contented myself with an RX7 for a while - that really was fun but totally impractical!

Woodsy - I always liked the RX7 but never really fancied taking on a rotary engine. I had a test drive in an MX5 once, but that felt too practical somehow.
