      Anyone considering buying a new 2016 ND now… 

      Anyone considering buying a new 2016 ND, now is the time. From the latest Cars.com and Autotrader web sites, Mazda currently has over 3000 cars which is 1/3 of the year’s total production of the new Miatas still sitting on dealers lots and the new 2017’s are being held at U.S. ports till inventories come down. Our sponsor, Greico, has 44 sitting in their inventory. Happy shopping to those looking for a great deal!

      Miata windshields 

      On the way to the last monthly meeting I took a rock dead center of my windshield. Wow!!!

      Over the next few days I saw it spread. I shopped around and found out that Safelite was the best deal.

      The cost if you go to one of their facilities is $25.00 cheaper. I had them come to my house and they changed it right in the driveway. I had a Certified Technician Tin Posada-Torres who lived up to his title. He did great job. Total coast was around $260.00.

      I am very satisfied and would recommend them.

        You don’t have full coverage? If so, the state pays for the windshield.

        I have coverage. The insurance I have is for a second car.It is very reasonable half of what the normal coverage is. I do not want to take advantage of them.

        Unless they’ve changed the laws, what Karl says is correct. I had a windshield replaced some years ago at no cost through State Farm.

      Plan for the Junior Orange Bowl Parade Nov 27 

      The annual Junior Orange Bowl children's parade in Coral Gables will be November 27Here’s a chance for Miata owners to show off their cars together. The annual Junior Orange Bowl Parade in Coral Gables features a long line of community groups participating in this venerable children’s event after Thanksgiving. We’ll dress up the cars with holiday decorations and help bring smiles to the thousands of kids and families along the short route. Afterwards, we’ll meet for a bite and refreshments nearby.

      We’re signing up to participate with a number of Miatas on parade. We need owners to commit soon so we can send in the application with details of how many of our Miatas will participate.

      Here’s a link to the event page.

      Miata Owners: you must coordinate your participation in the parade now with Lou Marett: loumarett@gmail.com

            Club Roadster: How I modified my Miata 

            An interesting posting at Club Roadster…

            “I came about my gearhead status a little later than some do. Not quite sure what caused it. I did help my dad work on cars when I was younger, but that was mostly of the routine maintenance variety of repair. While I was in college I became more interested in motorcycles, I was never allowed to have my own but could ride my grandfather’s on the back country roads (without a license no less) when I visited them. Then my senior year, Mazda came out with the RX-7…”

              The Hillsboro Lighthouse Road Trip and Tour 

              Our Miata Family enjoyed a delightful road trip adventure to the Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse recently. The property is only accessible once a month by boat. We climbed to the top to enjoy the views. We met with local historians and preservationists who gave us educational and entertaining presentation. We relaxed, enjoyed the breeze and the good company, before returning to the resort on the boat through the inter-coastal channel.

                Mazda started production of MX-5 RF retractable hardtop 

                HIROSHIMA, Japan—

                Mazda Motor Corporation started production of the Mazda MX-5 RF retractable hardtop (known as Roadster RF in Japan) yesterday at Ujina Plant No.1 near its global headquarters in Hiroshima. Production began with models bound for North American and European markets where sales launches begin from early 2017. In Japan, the MX-5 RF will go on sale later this year.

                Truly a member of the MX-5 family, the MX-5 RF fully embodies the core value of “Lots of Fun” that has defined the MX-5 throughout its 27-year history. This new two-seater lightweight sports car features a unique fastback design and offers an exhilarating open-air feel.

                Production of the MX-5 reached 1 million units on April 22 this year. The model is highly acclaimed, boasting over 280 automotive awards from around the world. The fourth-generation MX-5 was named World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year in 2016.

                Mazda will continue its efforts to enrich people’s lives through a variety of touchpoints, including the production of high-quality cars, and become a brand with which customers feel a strong emotional connection
