        Junior Orange Bowl Parade 

        An absolute terrific time was had by all. The parade was very well organized and everything went smoothly. We had a ball helping each other decorate our Miatas and we had a good laugh watching Blas attempting to climb over the lights on his door to get into the driver’s seat.

        Check out Rob’s posting below to see our handiwork. We have great members who love their Miatas and love having a good time.

        We look forward to being in the parade again next year. We should all plan on it for the Sunday after Thanksgiving.

              My Car (year and model): 95 miata base

              Comment: I recently acquired a 95 Miata base and I am looking for a recommended mechanic in South Florida to install a Fast Forward supercharger and was hoping you could recommend someone. I would be open to a club member that has done this kind of work.

                  Mazda’s Holiday Surprise 2017 MX 5 Miata RF… 

                  Mazda’s Holiday Surprise: 2017 MX-5 Miata RF Arrives at Dealers Two Months Early

                  November 22, 2016

                  IRVINE, Calif. (November 22, 2016) – There’s plenty to be thankful for this week, but Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) has added to that list by announcing that the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF has officially gone on sale in the U.S. The MX-5 RF arrives two months ahead of its originally announced timing due to shifts in the production schedule.

                  Dave Putter, the first customer to take delivery in the U.S., met with MNAO President and CEO Masahiro Moro onstage at the Los Angeles Auto Show last week to receive his keys ahead of taking home his MX-5 RF Launch Edition the following day. Putter was among the first customers to order one of the 1,000 MX-5 RF Launch Edition vehicles in October and is now the proud owner of his 16th Mazda and his eighth MX-5 Miata.

                  “Mazda is a unique and special car company that aims to do more than simply sell cars,” said Moro. “We want to build lifelong relationships with our customers and fans, providing them a fulfilling ownership experience they couldn’t get anywhere else.”

                  Putter’s MX-5 RF was air-freighted to Huntington Beach Mazda, where he took delivery. Approximately 500 additional MX-5 RFs will arrive nationwide beginning in early December, followed by wider-scale availability throughout the winter and spring.

                  The first-ever MX-5 RF gets its name from its exotic KODO design—“Retractable Fastback”—in which its power-operated top can deploy from closed to open or vice versa in a mere 13 seconds. Complementing the World Car of the Year-winning MX-5 roadster, MX-5 RF satisfies the open-air experience of the soft top model but with a vastly different, coupe-like design and premium accoutrements. It comes powered by a free-revving, 2.0-liter SKYACTIV-G engine, paired with either a SKYACTIV-MT six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, sending power to the rear wheels.

                  Available exclusively in MX-5 RF Club and Grand Touring trim levels and starting from an MSRP of $31,555[1], the hardtop MX-5 adds a 4.6-inch TFT color gauge display in addition to its folding roof. It is also the only MX-5 variant available with the liquid-metal-like Machine Gray Metallic paint.

                  MX-5 RF Launch Edition is based on the Grand Touring model and comes finished exclusively in Machine Gray. It is the only U.S.-bound MX-5 model to have Auburn Nappa leather and a hand-painted black top for the 2017 model year.

                  Mazda North American Operations is headquartered in Irvine, Calif., and oversees the sales, marketing, parts and customer service support of Mazda vehicles in the United States and Mexico through nearly 700 dealers. Operations in Mexico are managed by Mazda Motor de Mexico in Mexico City.

                    road trip suggestion: Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary 

                    Hey, everyone, I’ve been AWOL a bit lately.

                    I have a suggestion for a road trip: Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. I visited Saturday November 19, and it was most enjoyable. The sanctuary covers many acres of pristine everglades. It features a 2.25-mile boardwalk affording spectacular vistas, flora and fauna. It’s what most of South Florida looked like centuries ago.

                    I’d suggest we make this a road trip soon, during cooler weather. It’s between Imokalee and Naples, and takes just under 2 hours to get there. A lunch somewhere in Naples might also be a great thing to do after a morning visit to the sanctuary. I’d recommend getting there 9-ish while the park is still quiet and the sun is lower in the sky for best pictures. I’d also suggest bringing a camera.
