Default International Mazda6 Meet

Last weekend we had the second international Mazda6 meet. This year we had a few speed3's and Miatas too. We had professional photographers taking pics of the Sunday cruise, but most of their pics and all of their video isn't edited yet. Here are a few of the shots so far.
My car!






Twin turbo 6














My injury from the 2009 meet.

This year I signed the pole I ran into.

Love it. I've actually been seriously contemplating trading off my Ranger for a Mazdaspeed 3 or 6.

I've been considering trading my 6 for a 4x4 Ranger, but after the meet I have a passion again.

It's a tow hook, but they seem to be more for looks than actually used.

ok tow hook was my best guess lol
when does a street car make use of one, though?
other than looking cool, is there a useful aspect?

Depending on location, it could get stuck somewhere and need pulled out. Some people use them for rallying. Also could get stuck in the snow.

That looks like a fun time though, My sister had a mazda 6, 1st year they had that body style, she got one of the 500 in manual. We just had to sell it unfortinately, good car, and put up to her abuse, 180,000 miles, 1 clutch, and when we sold it, a bent piston rod, would barely go over 60 mph.

A factory turbo and not that pos sticking out of the grill. 6 speed trans, different body kit, seats, etc. Stay away from that thing.
