Mark 3 MX-5 Logo

This is 'Tic Tac' a 2005 Mazda MX-5 2.0 Sport in Winning Blue.

Winning Blue Mazda MX-5 2.0 Sport 'MX5 1 OFF'

Why 'Tic Tac'? Well after naming my past two MX-5's Jester and Jester II, it didn't really seem to matter if this car was christened something equally as daft. Tic Tac was chosen thanks to a review in Car Magazine from November 2005, where a photo of the car was used as part of the article. This shot showed the car, a Winning Blue MX-5, from above, and I instantly thought it looked like a Tic Tac, hence 'Tic Tac' was born. I created this Avatar for the Owners Club forum that shows what I mean. Click on the image for a larger image of tic tac.

Please note this page is being added to all the time, and the following information is far from being complete....Cheers, David.
