Strato Blue 3 Spotted

On a Sonic commercial with Cowboy Troy and his Nashville star partner. Anyone else catch it?

Re: Strato Blue 3 Spotted

I meant to make a post about this a while ago, but I always push things aside and procrastinate, then remember and get things done at inopportune times. With that said...

I spotted a silver Mazda 3i in the movie Two for the Money... ya know, the one with Al Pacino and Matthew McConaughey about the gambling thing. It was in a car chase scene with the Mercedes, I think it was. The Mercedes went flying through a turn right in front of the 3, and it was only there for two seconds, but it was there.

I don't watch TV (don't have time for it) so I haven't seen the commercial. We should make a thread with spottings of the 3 in popular culture. Maybe this could be it?

I second that, about the 3 and popular culture.

Re: Strato Blue 3 Spotted

I've also got another spotting in mind.... it was a PSM (Playstation Magazine) a while back, one of the editors mentioned something about his car getting hit. And there was a small picture, about the same size of our avatars of what I think was a Mazda 3. It only showed the rear, upper half of the car, so it was hard to say, but it looked like it followed the lines of the sedan. I'd hafta go looking again to find it, but I can give the issue and page number for someone else to confirm, if you guys are PSM subscribers.

I remember that. I read it in Barnes and Noble, and it caught my attention. Meant to buy it, but can't remember why I didn't. Dammit, lol

Re: Strato Blue 3 Spotted

Alright... found it. PSM issue 116 for November '06, page 6. Do you guys want a picture or scan of what I'm talking about? I could also maybe try and get a screen cap from the movie Two for the Money.

Sorry for the threadjack, Operator, but this could be kinda fun.

Re: Strato Blue 3 Spotted

Here's a shot from the movie Two for the Money. The 3 appears right around the 1:12:48-1:12:50 marker... the owners of the shimmering sand color finally have something to rejoice over



And I think the PSM sighting was a false alarm. The wheels and door handles shouted out Mazda 3 to me, but upon further inspection, I realized the rear windows aren't the right shape.
