Well, here is my ride. I guess I'll be about the only Mazda representing in all these Suby's, Jeeps, and Audi's. 2003 Protege5 (gotta love wagons) I live in the midwest and have a 4 hour one way trip to our local hil so mpg (25 w/ rack and car full) is a big necessity and ground clearance isn't.

Here she is in winter form.



Love the Thule with the easy access slides. I got this thing for a steal, brand new for 35 bucks. haha



And here is an older pic of it in summer attire. Although I now have the block off plates for the factory rack so I just take off the rails for summer.







My buddy has a pretty sick AWD Honda Element that is also our snowboard ride. Here's a pic, hopefully he can post some more.

I'm looking at a 2002 Explorer V6 with AWD and a few 2000ish Subaru Outback base models with the auto trans and under 5k. I've been driving my dads Explorer lately and I'm liking it, but is it worth losing the reliability and pickup of the Outback? The Ford gets 20 mpg and the Subie.... well you all know what they get

I was looking at a protege a couple weeks ago- same color, too! They seem like awesome cars, but everyone told me not to get it. But that wasn't the reason I didn't get it. The lack of awd or a sunroof was sort of a bummer.

We've had ours for a while now and love it. But, it does have a sunroof which you can see in the third pic, but no awd's which kinda sucks but it makes up for it in gas mileage. Usually gets about 30mpg and is super fun to drive. We had to get this to replace our Miata after we found our my wife was preggo. Handles almost as well as the Miata did.

Those wheels look pretty sic. I'd like to see some more pics of the car in summer mode. BTW, do you autocross? Because those tires look like they're super sticky.
