Visiting MAZMART in Atlanta, Georgia on my Southern Road Trip

First order of business upon visiting Atlanta was a quick trip down to MAZMART!

Two weeks ago I didn’t even know anything about Mazmart, luckily (or really unluckily) my car broke down… I went to test my battery and as I was cleaning under the hood and reinstalling everything in it’s place I must have leaned onto one of the power steering hoses, which moved the attachment on the side of the pump causing a ten year old O-ring to start seeping in air creating a fucking mess around the power steering reservoir.

The problem was solved using locally sourced parts in New Jersey but while I was doing my research (frantically since I knew I had a 1,000 mile road trip south coming up) I did reach out to Mazmart upon Sakshik’s recommendation to see how much they would charge for Mazda OEM O-rings… they were a good $10 cheaper than the dealer, luckily my problem was solved with a $2 part from NAPA Auto.

But that didn’t stop me from wanting to check out this place once I arrived in Atlanta, and I’m so glad we did!

Mazmart specializes in Mazda parts. They got a ton of parts cars on the property willing to sell you parts of them cheap. And if there’s something new you’re looking for they have a dealership hook-up with discounted rates compared to the actual dealerships.

I took a ton of pix in the store, especially of their rotary stuff:

Great news, Sakshik is back on the Miata Fiata Podcast!

He was kind enough to let me crash at his new place in Atlanta on my Southern Road Trip, travelling from Birmingham, Alabama today to Atlanta Georgia and continuing onto Virginia International Raceway later on this week.

While in Atlanta, Sakshik and I hit up some Mazda related places like his favorite parts place: MAZMART. And then off we went to sample true southern food at a fried chicken and waffles restaurant. I highly recommended a place I went to last year on my Alabama Grand Prix road trip, we got there and the windows on the restaurant were shuttered… apparently it closed. We went to the next place Google recommended a mile away and instead of soul food it was very snooty looking… so we went to recommendation #3 which turned out to be pretty crappy. But oh well…

Check out the episode where Sakshik and I catch up on our Miata hobby and be sure to tune in later in the week as we interview another Miata fan/enthusiast/racer in the Atlanta area.

Feedback welcome!

It was great to check out Sakshik’s other car, a Mazda3… it really inspires me to keep searching for that Mazda SUV I want to get for my mom. Soon I hope!
