Alfred Morris Refers to his Restored Mazda 626 as "The Bently"

If you are a fan of Mazda or the NFL, you have likely heard the story of Alfred Morris’ 1991 Mazda 626. Typically a running back in the NFL will opt for a high end luxury car or SUV, but Morris has decided to stick with the 1991 Mazda 626 that he purchased in college. After all, Morris is only entering his second year in the NFL, and according to Wikipedia his salary is a mere $390,000 (compared with the 8 million that Adrian Peterson earns).

Although this story was released during Morris’ rookie year with Washington, Mazda has recently reached out to Morris to give his 1991 sedan a facelift. Morris himself has alluded to this as “The Bentley” facelift, and this story has captured national attention again!  

By using certified Mazda auto parts and accessories, dealerships in the Washington D.C. region have restored the 1991 model into showroom-worthy condition! Along with receiving new interior components (seats, dashboard, radio, etc), the 1991 Mazda 626 also received an entirely new drivetrain (engine, air intake, manifold, and more). The finished product was a beautiful sight, and Morris has claimed that he will be driving it for another 20 years!
