I'm about 4 miles north of Orlando Int'l Airport.

Just wondering Tigster, Were you on I-4 today(Mon.) about 6pm?
I saw a red 8 blow by me on the far center lane just before the 408 exit.

I believe it probably was you. I was in the center lane in my black 8 and you flew by me, I caught up later when traffic slowed a little but was unable to get close enough
to give a salute. :p I travel that route almost every day so I'm sure our paths will cross again.

I will keep my eyes open, I want to know why you were just sitting there and I flew by. Maybe the black ones can't keep up with the red ones?? LOL :D

I saw 2 more 8's this morning, 1 on the 528 going West and another on the turnpike heading south. Both about 8:15 this morning

Here is my theory, red is a stand alone color on the spectrum. hence using only 1 hue to color the paint.

Since black is the "combination of all colors in the spectrum" the paint should weight the most.

And white is the absence of color having no additional hues added it is in fact the lightest and then the fastest of all colors.

LOL

Sounds like you've put a lot of thought and research into this phenomenon.
I was told once that cops are more likely to stop a speeding RED car as opposed to any other color. Not sure if that's true or not. Yesterday in Altamonte Springs
I spotted a navy blue 8 sitting in the parking lot by my bank. After going through the drive-up I drove by again to get a closer look. A young dark haired girl was sitting in it ready to leave. Never seen that color before. NOT winning blue but a much darker navy blue color.Had to be re- painted that color. I don't think Mazda has introduced any new colors for the '05 other than the white. Maybe I'm wrong

I think the red cop theory is correct, they tend to stick out and attract more attention. Isnt the navy blue a mazdaspeed / jdm color?

There's a red 8 that passes me every morning (between 745 -8) heading West bound on I4 by 434 or 436 (I'm heading East). Is that one of you guys? Anyhoo, wave if you see me.
