Owner: bluesfan
The Bluesmobile: 2008 Mazda B2300 2WD
Displacement: 2.3 L
Fuel type: gasoline
Transmission: automatic
Curb weight: 2994 lbs
Coefficient of drag: 0
Frontal area: 0 sq.ft.
Instrumentation: ScanGauge
Description: Stock wheels and tires so far. My fourth Mazda, although it's really more of a Ford I suppose.

Edit: For winter, I bought a set of Toyo Open Country G-02 Plus tires. Found a set of twelve-spoke aluminum rims from a '97 Grand Marquis at a local wrecking yard -- perfect fit, and they look sharp as heck.
Build Thread:
Current Mods: SG2, a Freedom Trifold tonneau, and removed the mud flaps after I took this cheesy picture.

Edit: Installed a 7" x 30" piece of plexiglass over the grill using four zip ties. Hoping for aero benefits and less cold air entering the engine compartment.

Planned Mods: Lots of reading to do, and probably some questions to ask as well. I like some of the Rocket Ranger's aero treatment, and front mask / bra modded to cover the fog light indents and the big hole in the bumper might be next. Smaller side mirrors? Lighter wheels with more fuel-efficient tires? Front air dam?
