    Unusual parking lot company

    I went to a local eatery for breakfast the other day. Normally I park away from other cars because I'm afraid of getting door dings. In this case, I parked in a row at the edge of the parking lot because it was in the shade at the time. I came out and this guy was parked next to me in an Audi R8 convertible...

    It was just funny to see this. That car is around $175,000. I'm guessing the wheels/tires on this guy's car cost more than my Mirage. It looks like he parked close to me, but he didn't. I think he just wanted some of the shade that was available at the time.

    I think Speck has more interior room. I wonder which has a better safety rating...

    I've been told at the Mitsu dealership that the Mirage is "much larger than" my Fiat. In fact, it's quite a bit longer but no wider than the Fiat. Then, a friend of mine commented that it was larger than my Yaris (that was totaled). I never in a million years thought it was larger than that Yaris sedan. Whether or not it's true I don't know, but the Mirage is giving off the impression that it is not so tiny.
