CC Outtake: 1992 Mazda MX3 V6 – Nice Parking Job

CC 265 024 1200

When I first spotted this red MX3 from down the block, I thought it must be an optical illusion; that there was a mound of dirt in front of it, not under it. I was wrong.

It’s solidly stuck there, high centered. So did it happen going forwards or backing up? Either way, I’m guessing this might have happened a bit late at night, with some degree of impairment involved. Self driving cars will eliminate that! Maybe the driver was used to driving a Jeep or such. Well, this MX3 is about as unsuitable for taking on rough terrain as it gets.

Looks like this incident happened a while back. This car looks a bit worse than last time I shot it and wrote up a CC on it. It’s just about the only one of its kind still around. These were unusual in having a very small displacement V6; 1.8L! My write up on it asks (and answers) the question if it was the smallest displacement production V6 ever.

It looks a bit unhappy in that position. At least nobody is going to steal it.
