The car club for New York Long Island and Metro New York Miata Enthusiasts!
The Big Apple Miata Club, located on Long Island, NY, is a group dedicated to the enjoyment and preservation of the Mazda Miata through events, meetings and gatherings. Our goals are to have fun, drive safe and enjoy our cars.
The club members enjoy their Miatas during weekend and day tours throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Regions. A mainstay of every ride is enjoying the bounty of restaurants located along our routes with the good company of other members. Since the club is mainly involved in touring, we look forward to the ideas that new members can contribute.
We welcome all who share our passion for the Miata and enjoy interesting rides and the company of fellow members. We hope you enjoy your visit and consider joining The Big Apple Miata Club.
President's Spring Newsletter
Spring is finally here and we fight to keep the green pollen off our Miata's as everything seems to bloom at once here on Long Island. The weather has been relatively warm and sunny so far, so we are back in the swing of top down driving.
In April we had our annual Tech Session at Paul's house. We had several members show up for some work on their cars and others to sample the bagels and coffee. Lew and yours truly did a 4-wheel brake job on Lew's Mazda 6 while other members helped Ken install his CB splitter and antenna system.
This past weekend we had 8 cars for a day ride up to the Walkway Bridge over the Hudson River. A 1.28 mile converted railroad bridge which is now part of a walking trail system of the NY State Park System. There were beautiful views of the Hudson River from both sides of the bridge. This was followed by a great lunch at Shadows on the Hudson restaurant. Club members were in favor of making this ride an annual event.
Congrats to Anthony and Jessica who are expecting their second child in October.
Already this year, we have had several new members join the club. Thanks to all of you for keeping us going strong.
One final note, Mazda just built the 1,000,000th Miata on April 22nd and will be showing it at auto shows around the world.
