What’s a road trip without a bit of the classic “I spy”. Our version revolves around Mazdas. We are tracking every Mazda we see with highlights to Rotary powered ones and CX-5s. They only count if they’re on the road, no “for sales” and no parking lots unless they’re out of state from the state we’re in.
