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 - October 2014

Summer is over.  Thinking back I have to wonder where the year went and how it went by so quickly.

The Windy City Miata Club goes on, and has events even with the summer months gone by.   We have had a great driving season but there is still more to come!  On October 4th we will have our monthly breakfast with a short tour afterward to a Pumpkin Farm, Corn Maze and all.  Then on October 12th we will have our annual Fall Color Tour!  We will be enjoying some of the best roads in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin.  If you have never driven in the Fall Color Tour I would encourage you to join in the fun.  It’s always a day of scenic roads, great colors and of course a great time with members of the Windy City Miata Club!

October 14th is the date for our monthly Burger Nite at a new spot!  Well, new for us: we’ll be at Photos Hot Dogs in Palatine.  Photos has a long history of hosting car shows at their facility.  I’m sure they are looking forward to having the best Miata Club grace their location, just as we are looking forward to enjoying the evening with them.

Last month we were able to see a glimpse of the 4th generation of the Miata.  I realize that Mazda calls it an MX5, but to us in the Windy City Miata Club it will always be a Miata.  The photos created as many questions as it did answers.   It has caused quite a stir around our club  The reaction from members was all positive, but I know many of us look forward to seeing the real car.

As you can see, we have something for everybody to enjoy!  If you are just stopping by to check us out, we’re glad you did.  Come out and enjoy an event with us.  We would be happy to meet you and welcome you into our club.
