What fun-a gorgeous top down day in March, an old fashioned drive in with ice cold root beer and 11 Miatas. Does it get any better than this??? Yes it does. We had 5 first time drivers join us today-Matthew Volz, Sharon and Frank Cella, Mike Riegel, Al Cuzzone and "new" former member Dick Getoor with his beautiful new '07 with retractable hard top (sigh)

We left Jolly's Drive In and headed West along River Rd and found our way to Brookville, In. I'm not sure where all we went-I was just following all the cars in front of me : ) It was a well spent 3 hrs and I expect to see more of our first timers! Also along for the ride were Chad and Jasmina (the Miata Dog) Douglas,Paul and Carol Levasseur, Vic and Karen Nelson, myself and John Watson who organized and lead the drive. Bryan Wyatt joined us at the drive in but couldn't make the drive-something about wedding plans that needed attention???? : )

THANK YOU JOHN!!!!!!

4/30/2006 - Dual Muffler Install
Dual exhaust install goes smooth as silk when you have someone like Chad on your team. It seemed to take longer to cut the bumper than to install the exhaust; but when you have someone as "Precise" (Sometimes known as "Anal" later changed to "Focused", most recently changed to "Precise") as Mike Lukey doing the cutting you soon understand that old piece of advise: "Measure twice, cut once". Mike did and excellant job of "Bumper Preperation". See the results here.

Tom Theiman and Larry Glaser both showed up with "New Rides". Tom's wearing a coat of "Copper Red" and Larry's sporting a new coat of "True Red".

However, the trip gave us a chance to visit with our fellow Miata (MX-5) lovers.

Lunch at the Union Jack itself, was worth the trip. Very special attention is paid to the food at this establishment. If anyone left hungry, it was their own fault.
