    I received the following message from a gentleman in FL last week, and have had a couple conversations with him.  His timeframe is still up in the air, but mid June is his target. At some point , once things get nailed down, I will be organizing some sort of gathering and a ride of some sort….so stay tuned.  i have a couple pics to add here…this is just the text

     

    We are planning a trip that will take us to Cape Fear along our route circumnavigating the United States in a clockwise direction.

    We will be traveling in a 1999 Miata and covering somewhere over 9000 miles this summer. I’m an automotive historian and author who has specialized in Healey automobiles for many years. HOWEVER…., as I got older (89) it was less and less fun trying to keep the Healeys on the road, so I moved over to MIATA and my maintenance problems seem to go away.

    Along the way we will be presenting a 30 minute Powerpoint show to many Miata Clubs covering:
    The development of the early MIATA design and prototype.
    The Trip so far.
    The restoration of our Miata from a “junkyard dog” with no engine no transmission, no interior, no top and many panels that were bent….. To an Award winning show car which was  shown at the 2024 Amelia Island Concorde d’ Elegance.

    I would certainly appreciate  any information you could provide about your MIATA Club, the location of your meetings and the telephone number for your point of contact for Miata Travelers.

    Many thanks,
    Bill Emerson

    That’s amazing! Now that I have that map in my head, I’m not going to be able to stop thinking about it. What a trip! I’m definitely looking forward to meeting them and hopefully going for a local ride.
