The Windy City Miata Club (WCMC) is a not-for-profit organization designed to promote the enjoyment of good will and fellowship derived from owning a Mazda Miata. Though most of our membership is located in the Chicagoland area, we have members in Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, and other states. As of the end of 2013, we have 324 members, with 218 Miatas.

You're invited to join us at our next meeting or activity! Regular club meetings are held the fourth Tuesday of each month at Fuddruckers in Downers Grove (Click here).

New and prospective members are always welcome at our events. Some events may require an RSVP to the organizer. If you want more information about an upcoming event, please email the event organizer at the address shown on the event page or you may contact us here.

A Word from our President - August 2014

Welcome to the Windy City Miata club website.  Joining our club is a great way to enhance your experience of owning a Miata.  We have something for everybody.  If you are a race fan, you will enjoy our autocross events.  It’s a chance to experience in a controlled environment just what your Miata is capable of doing.  If you enjoy socializing with others and talking about your Miata, we have burger nights and monthly breakfasts.  If you enjoy taking drives with other Miatas – again, you’ve come to the right place!

A little history about our club: We have been in existence since 1990, when the first Miata came on the market.  During that time our club has grown, right along with the Miata’s increasing popularity. We are the second largest Miata Club in the country.  You may ask just what makes our club so different than other clubs around.  I can respond to that in two words: “the people.”  We have a great group of people who enjoy sharing fun times with their cars.  One of our members who passed away much too early used to say, “You join the club because of the car, but you keep the car because of the club and the people in it.” 

We had a very busy July, and August is proving to be the same.  After our monthly breakfast we did a drive out to Dixon, IL, to visit the boyhood home of President Reagan.  The night before that, we had a drive-in movie night, a long-time summer tradition.  On the 9th we will be heading to southwest Michigan for the day to visit some wineries.  On August 16th we have our club’s annual picnic.  We have an autocross on the 17th, and finally our annual weekend trip to Door County, Wisconsin.

If you are visiting our website to check out our club, welcome.  Come on out and visit us sometime, and see just what we’re all about.  We have our membership meetings at Fuddruckers in Downers Grove on the 4th Tuesday of every month, February through October.  The meetings start at 7:30 but come early and have dinner with us.  I’m sure you will find something you would be interested in.

See you on the next curve,


Jeff Sporleder
