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 2015, we have 310 great members, with 211 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 - November 2017


I used that phrase this week in an article I wrote for another organization to which I have responsibilities and immediately thought of the great drives I took with the Club in October –  the Fall Color Tour (yes, despite the weather) and “Meet Me for Ice Cream.” I did enjoy the broasted chicken in Hebron at the end of the Fall Color Tour and the apple pie ice cream in Algonquin at the end of the ice cream run.  However, I would not have made a trip to either if it weren’t for the Club drive. It’s about the journey.

You know well there is nothing like a back roads drive in an open roadster. It’s about the panoramic views of the country around us. It’s about smells – the smell of water when crossing a river or driving near a lake, the smell of cows when we cross the “cheddar curtain” into Wisconsin (and even the smell of Blommers chocolate when driving down the Kennedy into the Loop). It’s about the weather – being enveloped in the mists after a rain or feeling the temperature drop when driving into a forest preserve. It’s about the roads and the opportunity to drive rather than just steer the car and hearing the tires “sing” as we take a curve. It’s about the people we meet on the road – the motorcyclists who always wave, the other roadster drivers who flash their lights, and the friendly people who will walk up and start a conversation with strangers just because they happen to be driving an open car. (Speaking of friendly, on the Fall Color Tour an SUV driver blocked traffic at an intersection so we could all roll through together.)

Thanks for making the journey this year with WCMC. I’m already looking forward to next year’s driving season. Join us again on the journey.
