A Winter’s Tale

Try again, Fling Miata Yuletide Greeting

Too busy to get this done before Christmas. But sometimes “better late then never” is a good thing.

A Christmas Card.

25 Years Ago – Winter 1992

This is the back page from the Winter 1992 Miata Magazine. I looked through the whole issue looking for just the right thing to add here, and while included the usual stuff, letters with questions, a camparo with a 1959 Mercedes Benz 190SL, a Club Chapter spotlight (Tar Heel), it seemed like there were actually more ads than content. So here you have just some of the fancy things you could buy for your Miata way back at the end of 1992.

Click on the image to get a bigger view. You can then enlarge the pop-up image to a much larger size by clicking on the symbol at the upper left to bask in all the glory of early 90’s goodness. Like a Coil Cellular Look Antenna, so you can pretend you had one of those big ticket mobile phone things.

Some of these things were actually very useful and within a few years were built into the car by Mazda, like the trunk shield and door sill protectors. A few were worthwhile like the window sandwicher to protect the easily scratched vinyl back window and the rear deck bags to practically double the trunk space for long road trips.

One of the first things I did buy for the front of my first Miata was one of the black mesh grills. I still run one today and it has protected the A/C condenser coil from innumerable leaves, grasshoppers and 2 low flying birds. As a bonus, it looks better than the open mouth on the NA & NB. Plus, I am almost embarrassed to admit, I bought a pair of those black leather driving gloves too.

2018 Events Planning Meeting & Dinner

Thursday, Jan 4, 2018
6:30 pmto8:30 pm

Where: BJ’s Country Buffet in North Augusta – map

BJ’s Country Buffet is located at 611 E Martintown Rd, North Augusta, SC 29841. I have the back room reserved for us so that we may plan our 2018 Club activities without disturbing the restaurant’s other customers.

Please exercise your imagination for neat “special” excursions, day trips or overnighters/weekenders, and bring those ideas to the meeting. Also start thinking about dinner meetings and Saturday breakfast runs that you are willing to sponsor.

We will be voting to add a Bylaw that would require a minimum balance of $600 be kept in the club checking account, with the ability of a quorum of memberships to vote on allowing the balance to go below $600.

Hope to see you there !!
