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 2014, we have 328 members, with 221 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 - February, 2016

I remember it as the kind of day for which we long right about now. It was a beautiful Spring day in 1977. The sun was out, the weather warm, the top down. We were in Colorado Springs where I was doing my parish internship at a Lutheran congregation. It was the year we owned our first roadster, a 1974 Triumph Spitfire.

I was 24 years old, driving a roadster. My beautiful bride was in the navigator’s seat (though we didn’t know to call it that in our pre-WCMC days). I was smoking a decent cigar – I did smoke back in the day. I was wearing a Roman collar (also appropriate attire in the Lutheran tradition) because we were on our way to a church function.

We were stopped at a traffic light when a young man pulled up beside us, looked at the car, the woman, the cigar, and my collar. Smiling, and with just the right inflection, he asked, “How ya’ doing, Father?”

I would imagine he still looks with suspicion at Roman Catholic priests to this day.

As I write this, Tom Skilling is threatening us with another Groundhog’s Day blizzard. The only thing we can do in response is to begin to plan those events which create the memories that make us smile. The 2016 schedule is wide open.
