    Post ★★★★★ Florida based Miata clubs ( Find a Club near you! ) ★★★★★

    If you are looking to expand your Miata experience then joining a local Miata club is a great way to do it!

    Below are six reasons to join up with a local Miata club:

    1. You are likely to meet a bunch of people who are fundamentally just like you. Chances are you'll have a lot to talk about and will end up making new friends.

    2. Need a ride? The Internet is a useful tool for research and discussion, but friends on the other side of the country can't help you work on your brakes, or give you a ride to pick up your Miata from the bodyshop, mechanic, dealer, etc.

    3. You can get access to specialty tools through your club (spring compressions, timing lights, fender rollers, air tools, etc). If one member has a car lift in his shop, chances are you can borrow it from time to time. Then you can spend your budget on another tool that no one else has yet. Be sure to share!

    4. Finding a group of like-minded people in your area will help you keep your interest in your car. This is especially true if you have a project car that may take some time before it's ready to drive.

    5. The other members of the club will know the best places to shop for parts, which mechanics to use, and have probably seen and overcome every challenge you will face. Their hands-on experience won't be available on the Internet forums.

    6. Want to know about certain aftermarket parts, how to install it, or what something looks/feels like in person? Chances are someone in your local area already has that rollbar, racing seat, turbo kit, or suspension set you have been looking at on the internet. Want to know what a certain clutch, flywheel, or coil overs feel like in a Miata? These are the people to ask!


    Last but not least, some rules for a happy car club life are simple: Be a friend to everyone and keep your nose out of factions and internal politics. Treat your club members right, and you'll always have help when you need it. And remember, come for the cars, and stay for the people! Some of the friends you make here will last a lifetime!

    Below is a list of the known Florida Based Miata Clubs. Some of these clubs are free and some require yearly memberships, so check each one out and find the one that is the right fit for you!

    If your club is not listed please contact a site moderator to get it added.

    Not a Miata Club in your area? Get off your butt and start one!!

    Phat there is this club.
    http://southfloridamiatas.com

    I will say the group is a carry over of one of the original miata clubs from back in the day with the magazines. The people are generally older. Average age is at least 40.

    Just so you guys know that south florida miata club is not a car show type of crowd. I think one of their last events was to go to key west for a wine and cheese tasting. I am not saying there is anything wrong with that.

    Soon I would like to start my own club for enthusiasts of the miata. Maybe we can have a garage day where we can help out new people that need help, organize events to meet at places.... The name being thrown around would be Miatas of Miami.

    You should do it, there are quite a few of the south Florida Miata owners on here that are active members. Wasn't there some Miata only BBQ functions down there in the past?

    Then I need to properly team up with them. I know I am a member and the few meetings I attended to seemed to be catered toward a slightly different clientele than I thought. Nothing at all against them but they seemed to be less enthusiasts about the miata than I thought.

    Although to give a fair estimate I really need to start attending meetings. I think I have officially been a member for the last 7 years before they changed heads.



    Just poking a little fun here last time I attended a meeting I sat across from a lady who was trying to set me up with her granddaughter who was too old for me.

    Just an update. I went with the south florida miata club today for a meet and drive and apparently the club is under a new leader. It is very different and much more enthusiast driver. I would urge anyone if they are in South Florida with a miata to check them out.
