New Jersey Miatas and Modern Fiat 124 Spider End of Season Meet

First, forgive me for being a selfish prick and not sharing the news of the event sooner. I forgot to remember until… and of course the actual date (today) got rained out! So see you all next week… The peeps behind this event seem to focus on two major events per year… the season opening […]

Registered Another Domain Before Someone Snatched it: MiataFiata.com

…been contemplating registering MiataFiata.com since last year when Chris, Sakshik and I launched the Miata Fiata Talk podcast. Today I finally pulled the trigger so to speak.

Orlando Roadsters Monthly Miata Meet at Tijuana Flats Winter Park

The last order of business on this two week trip down to Florida was another Miata Meet with Orlando Roadsters. What a great coincidence? Much like last year post-Sebring 12 hour the Orlando Roadsters group once again organized a Monday night meet at a local Tijuana Flats tex-mex restaurant in Winter Park, FL. Some 30’ish […]

JAX MX-5 Club Monthly March Meeting, Enjoying Seafood with the First Coast Miata Club

While the Northeast is under Blizzard warning and my home town in New Jersey is under at least half a foot of snow I’m really enjoying all that the Sunshine State has to offer. In the past I complained: “Where have all the Miata’s gone?” while in Miami, it turns out they are all hiding […]

Thanks Playboy!

Fun fact: I bought my MX-5 Miata thanks to Playboy… Disclaimer – this is a clean post, no nudity will be shared.  Although I have to say I ended up with a car I can go topless in… well, not me, the car can… ugh nevermind! What better time than Valentine’s Day to share the […]

The Logistics behind Creating a Roadster Experience Business

The “Miataland” post inspired me to wonder about the logistics behind building an MX-5 Miata / Roadster vacation experience. So I’m going to write a few ideas down below, just spitballing, thinking out loud about what it would take to launch and make it successful. It’s worth noting that at this time I do not consider […]

Miataland

There’s a place in Italy I would love to visit on my next Euro Trip: Miataland. Located smack in the middle of Italy if you look on the map and only a few hours drive north of Rome heading in the direction of Florence and San Marino. Although I’ve been to Italy twice in recent years […]
