I've been lurking around as a guest for a while now and decided to join while i start building my car. Don't know many Miata drivers around my area so maybe we can set up a meet sometime soon. Not too soon cause ill be in LA next week.
welcome! there are many of us here in the bay, and i'm shaping new roadster enthusiasts on a regular basis so our population is growing steadily.
its an easy trick actually... find any friend who can appreciate cars in one way or another, and let them take your miata for a spin through some twisties.
from then on all you will hear from them is how they want to pick up a miata, how they plan to pick up a miata, and how they've spotted the miata that they want to buy.
i've had friends that drive sports cars with several hundred horsepower who end up getting all excited about miata's after one test drive.
i've also had friends who never even considered a sports car before yet couldn't stop talking about getting a miata after one drive.
as far as meets are concerned, the california section at miata.net is where many meet/tech/track dates can be found.
if any bay area folks would like to have a specific clubroadster.net meet, i can start planning something...
this sunday i will be taking highway 9/skyline from san jose to 92, then 92 down into half moon bay to stop at ONO for some hawaiian lunch... it will include a few friends with a cobra, a vette, a focus, my miata and perhaps a couple others. pm me if you are interested at all.
