2009 Mazda 6: O Christmas Tree

December 14, 2009


It's been a rainy few days here in Southern California but the Christmas tree needed to be bought despite the wet weather. I had our shiny red Mazda 6 for the weekend so we headed over to our local OSH to pick out a nice tree. We usually get a 6-foot-tall Noble fir but this year I wanted to go a little higher without cutting it too close to the ceiling in my living room.

We picked out a lovely 7-ft Noble fir and the tree guy informed us that he couldn't tie it to the car but he could provide us with some twine. I had brought along a sound blanket to protect the Mazda and we carefully placed the tree on the roof. But once I had it on top of the car, it looked so small. So I dropped the rear seats in the Mazda 6. It's easy to do once you release them from inside the trunk. I spread the sound blanket in the back and the car swallowed up the tree with no problem.


It was much easier to take it home inside the car instead of on the wet roof.
