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 - October 2017


Thanks to Tim Martin and Pat Marcus who lead us to the British Car Show earlier in September. The outing gave me an opportunity to wax nostalgic as I wandered among the Triumph Spitfires gathered there.

The first car Judy and I bought, more than 40 years ago, was a blue 1974 Spitfire – and there were two at this year’s British Car Show. It was absolutely the wrong car for us to buy. Neither of us had – nor will we ever have – the skills needed to keep it running. Our primary income was an internship stipend, hardly an adequate source to pay for the Spitfire’s many trips to the mechanic.

We had to sell it after 9 months, but before we turned over the keys Judy and I agreed that someday – probably when we were middle-aged and middle class – we would buy another roadster. There is no driving experience better than the experience of driving an open two-passenger car.

We kept the promise we made to ourselves and 20 years later bought our first Miata. And I discovered I was wrong – there is a driving experience better than the experience of driving an open two-passenger car. It is the experience of driving with a group of people who love their roadsters as much as we love ours.

Thank you for being a part of the president’s tours, after-breakfast drives, ice cream runs, auto crosses, one day tours, parades, fall color tours, multi-day tours, and all the other driving events that make the experience of driving a Miata even more fun.

We still have a few events on the calendar before the snow flies. I look forward to seeing you on the road because it’s more fun together.

John Schumacher
