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 - April 2015

This is a big month for the Windy City Miata Club.  Of course we have our customary events, like our monthly Breakfast (Sat., 4/4 at the Seven Dwarfs in Wheaton) and Burger Nite (Tues. 4/14 at the Bristol Tap in Bristol, IL, near Aurora).

 But we also have some very special events.  On Saturday, April 18th,  Underground Autosports is hosting an open house and  Dyno Day for those of us who want to see what our Miatas can do.  We spent a day at their shop last year and, besides their great hospitality, they have a very interesting place to see, with plenty of work-in-progress projects.  It was like spending the day at a reality Hot Rod show!  Come on out to Hoffman Estates, make some new friends, enjoy the free food, see the sights and have a good time.

The President’s Tour on Sunday, April 26th, is our first driving event of 2015.  We will start off in front of the Adler planetarium..  Imagine both sides of the street being filled with Miata’s.  Yes, you guessed right, this always makes for fantastic photo shots.  We will have a fun day of driving and I’m keeping my fingers crossed for fantastic weather.  Then our general membership meeting on Tuesday the 28th will be anything but ordinary:  We will celebrate our club’s 25th anniversary.  Yes, the Windy City Miata Club has been having fun for 25 years.  That night our usual discussion of past and upcoming events will be abbreviated, and we will have a cake decorated with our 25th anniversary logo.  Don’t miss the fun.

A few notes about this month’s Breakfast and the Burger Nite: 

The Seven Dwarfs Restaurant is a family-owned business that’s been in the same location for 60+ years, and is listed by Frommer’s as one of the 500 places to see before they disappear.  There will be a short drive afterward to a nearby historical museum for a private guided tour.

The Bristol Tap is a laid-back rural spot with great burgers - - and free popcorn!  The menu is a sign on the wall, they only take cash, and they don’t allow children.

With the snow gone, we will soon be enjoying some long-awaited top-down driving.  I have already had my Miata out to shake out the cobwebs, and that was just great, but now I can’t wait to be out in my favorite car every day.

If you’re just checking out our club, look at our calendar and you’ll see that there’s something special for everybody.  

See you on the next curve,

Jeff Sporleder
