    Hi Everyone, I’ve just joined the club and I wanted to provide a brief introduction. My name is Alex, I’m 22 years old, live in Wilton—from West Hartford and still go back, and work in consulting down in Stamford. I’ve loved cars all my life and even though I’ve only had a license for about six years, I have owned 4 cars ranging from a Jeep XJ Cherokee, a MKV VW GTI, and a B7 Audi S4–the one with the V8 :-). But I have always had a deep admiration for Miatas and finally decided to buy a 2002 Miata LS with 34,000 miles. It is my daily driver which is quite the gift given that I take all back roads between work and home and can avoid the Merritt Parkway altogether. I hope to have this car for quite some time and make some wonderful memories with it. If anyone has any questions or advice, don’t hesitate to reach out!

    Cheers,

    Alex

    Hi Alex, welcome to the club!
    That’s a good looking NB.  I also own an 02 ( I wish it had only 34k ).  It’s my first Miata which I bought just before I joined the club last April.  I know that you’ll enjoy being a club member.  I’m a newbie and I’ve been having a blast taking part in the club events

    Thanks for uploading your profile picture and cover image.  I’ve just finished getting the site to the point where we could launch it.  So, as you begin using the site, any feedback on how it’s working, what needs fixing and what other features are needed etc. would be very helpful.

    Alex,

    Welcome to the club. Great find, with such low miles. Having grow up in Wilton, and with family in Stamford, I’m sure I would be familiar with the roads you frequent. I look forward to meeting you at an event soon. I’m down that way quite a bit (I live way up in New Milford now) don’t be afraid to flag me down. ’95 Laguna Blue.

    Hi Dave,

    I appreciate the warm welcome, and if you know any good driving roads, I’m open to suggestions! I’ve been exploring a little bit and so far have been fairly impressed!

    Hi Alex, Welcome to Nutmeg!

    I too always had wanted a Miata, and back in 2011 I finally made the plunge. Went out to purchase a new 2011 NC RHT, and ended up getting a barely used 2008 Grand Touring NC soft top.

    While I was finishing the paper work, and signing my name at the dealership. The salesman handed me a card with the Nutmeg Miata Logo, and contact number. He said this is a group of other Miata owners that get together for rides, tech days, track days, and over night stays to mention a few. It took me a few weeks to give the club a call.

    Calling was the best thing I ever did, I was not only a new Miata owner? I now had a slew of new friends that also had the love of  a Miata. The Nutmeg Miata Club is a great nucleus,  and reaches far out from it’s center here in Connecticut,Throughout our Nation to World Wide.

    Welcome Again Alex, you have made the first step. You joined the club, now enjoy the ride!

    Welcome…you will love the Miata…especially now that the weather is changing.  I have been DD a Miata for 13 years…couple different ones…I get around all over the state because of the work I do, and what is better than driving my Miata and getting paid at the same time…
