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 - March 2017


The predicted high temperature today (February 22) is going to set another record and yet, living in Chicago, we know it is too soon…

….to take the tarps off the deck furniture

….to buy a bag of charcoal, uncover the grill and fire it up

….to start on the plan I laid out in the “landscaping for dummies” course I took last fall

….to buy the new plants I need (the garden section at Loews was absolutely empty yesterday)

….to turn over the vegetable bed and plant the “first crop” (onions)

….to clean out the flower beds

….to re-stain the glider bench

….to take the hardtop off the 2001 BRG

….to swap out the snow tires for summer tires on both Miatas

….to put away the snow brushes and heavy rubber floor mats

….to do the spring polish and wax on both

(It’s a good thing I’m retired. How did I ever find time to get all this done when I was working?)

I know this great weather (as short lived as it may be – snow is predicted for the weekend) infects us all with spring fever and makes us anxious to get back on the road. It has gotten Judy and me out to work on the March breakfast and another project for later in the year. We just have to hold on a little longer. The “official driving season” is only two months away, beginning with the first Autocross event on April 29 and the President’s Tour on April 30. In the meantime, come out to the membership meetings, breakfasts, and burger nights to hear about and contribute to the plans for 2017.

It won’t be “too soon” for much longer.
