      Nice ride. I would say don't give up on the car too soon as far as autocross but you've got other cars for that.

      Some will recall that the primary motive behind our picking up a CRX was to help us reduce some debt and open up a parking space among the fleet. We wanted it to replace our 2010 Mazda3 as the primary commuter car.

      The experiment has gone well. The CRX has been the primary commuter for the last couple months without any major hiccups (knocking on wood). While it has, we effectively parked the 3 to see if it really was possible to live without it, and we really did manage to not drive it aside from a scant few short rides into town.

      And today (yesterday actually, seeing the clock) the 3 has been sold and is now out of our life. We still have plenty of vehicular options available to us, so we won't be up a tree in case the CRX needs to stay home for repairs, but I viewed the 3 as a good safety net that's no longer there.

      So now we have seven cars here at stately Claffie Manor. Six of them are two-seaters. Five of them are convertibles. Only one of them is FWD. Only one has an automatic transmission. And the neighbors still look at us funny.
