I Drive New York

I admire their dedication to driving a car, classic or otherwise, and realize how lucky I am to be able to jump in my Miata and go for drive just by walking into my garage, turning a key and hitting a button to open the door.

Millionth Miata World Tour

After 27 years of production, Mazda announced it made the one millionth Miata in April. To celebrate the achievement, the Japanese automaker has been taking the roadster on a worldwide tour. Now, the vehicle is finally making its way to the States. If you are interested, the closest places to us to see it would be at these three dates:

Thurs, Sept. 8 Charlotte, North Carolina Mazda of South Charlotte
Fri, Sept. 9 Atlanta, Georgia Mall of Georgia Mazda
Sat, Sept. 10 Jacksonville, Florida Duval Mazda at the Avenues

The first 240 fans at each tour stop will have the opportunity to sign the MX-5 and 400 guests will receive a “Millionth Miata Celebration Tour” T-shirt.

Plus there is one just perfect for those first Saturday of the month gathering in Grovetown. Click on the image below to go there, better hurry though as you only have ’til Monday at noon.

I’ve included the add for the BMG Compact Disc Club for an additional bit of nostalgia. At one time I was a member (probably in tandem along with the Columbia House one too.)
