The 2019 Texas Miata Round-Up is coming up and if you are attending you’ve already booked a room, registered and have your plans.  We are grateful you’ll be joining the event!

Although, it’s never too early to begin planning your next big adventure – and here are a few ideas:

  • Drive New Zealand’s Great Drives   You can now rent a Miata or as the rest of the world calls them, a MX5, and have a fabulous vacation. According to the website, “with incredible vistas, great roads and a brilliant car, your trip will be one of a lifetime”.
  • Visit MiataLand in the Umbria Region of Italy. Next May, Joe and I will be spending four days there and each day driving one of their over 40 collection of Miatas.
  • Drive out to Moab, UT April 30 – May 2, 2020, where the Red Cliffs Lodge will be the host hotel. It’s situated on the beautiful Colorado River, 14 miles from Moab, through a beautiful canyon. It is a scenic area with several National Parks – if you haven’t been to this area, it makes for a great Miata vacation.
  • Drive to Ottawa, Canada and meet up with Keith Vodden, the President of The Underground Miata Network (Miata Club of Ottawa, Canada). They are inviting all Miata/MX-5 lovers to Canada’s Capital Miata Meet—2020. This four-day event is just one short year away—August 13-16, 2020.  Help them celebrate their Club’s 25th Anniversary.
  • Or if you’re not one to roam or plan out too far, on Saturday, September 14, 2019, you might consider enjoying a short trip up the road to Johnson City to either participate in the Classic Car Show or just enjoy sipping great craft beer and looking at classic cars on the Courthouse square. Celebrity Guests Joe & Amanda Martin from TV Show – Iron Resurrection. Your car could be on TV!! Live Music, Food, Vendors & More, Open to the public @ noon – 6p. To register a car email  (they know we drive Miatas and invited us to participate).

Happy Travels!
