2009 Mazda 6: Stopped at the Gate
December 04, 2009
Early this morning I drove a friend to the airport, and for first time in many months, the security guard at the entrance to LAX motioned for me to stop.
Uh, oh, I thought. Driving a Mazda with California license plates, just me and Stephanie in the car, what could be the reason for the stop?
I rolled down the window and wished the heavily armed officer a good morning. He peered into the car, and asked, "Is this a 3?"
"No, it's a 6," I responded quickly.
"Huh," he said. "My daughter said she's considering buying a Mazda 3. I'm not sure I know what one looks like. But if it's anything like this, I'm good with it."
He waved. I waved. Steph breathed a sigh of relief.
