2010 Mazdaspeed 3: Well Red

It's not like I spend all my time checking out paint jobs or anything, but as I was passing the Mazdaspeed 3 this morning, I couldn't help but admire its impressive coat of Velocity Red Mica. The paint was all sparkly-like in the sun, as if it had been sprinkled with the glitter dust of a thousand drunk pixies.

The thing about glitter is that it's notoriously camera-shy, so this photo doesn't even begin to do it justice.
