    It's been a really crazy month and I didn't get to RSVP in time but I would really still like to attend if that's okay. I'll have food and a gift!

    My chip dip seemed pretty popular last time so I'll try for a repeat performance.

    I believe Gan's making a carrot cake.  If I'm wrong, I'll come back correct my post.  So for right now, it's carrot cake...  CARROT CAKE!

    Awesome story Kelly Bob!  Not only did you tell her about the HMC, but you demonstrated something even better...  GOOD WILL!

    Promote the club by putting a card on the windshield...
    Saw an early NA when I parked at the store.  Grabbed our club card to put under the wiper blade to promote the club......scared the HECK out of the little lady napping in the drivers seat.  Apologized thru the closed window and showed her the card.  I'm sure she thought I was a molester or a panhandler...but the window came down an inch or two and I introduced myself and told her about the club.  She said "Really?, I didn't know there WAS a Miata club in Houston?" We chatted a few minutes and I was informed that she had been there about a half hour waiting for AAA to come jump her 91 Miata, she was dead in the parking lot.  I ran to my truck but didn't remember I had removed the jumper cables....darn.  I told her to put the stick in 2nd gear, turn the key to "on" and I'd shove the car and she could pop the clutch and see if it would start.  I also gave the car a rocking push to see if I had the horsepower to actually move the car fast enough....figured I could.  After doing what I asked she said "Nah, she didn't feel comfortable doing that".  I DID NOT recommend we change roles and she could push as she was more senior than I was.  So I said OK at least pop the trunk and let me look at the battery connections.  She turned the key the wrong direction and the engine came alive.  We wordlessly looked at each other.  She said Oops! I turned it the wrong way, should I turn it off again so you can check the battery?  I shouted NO! just let it run and charge the battery a bit.  I asked if she lived close by Yes she said.  I said you can just get home and then call the mechanic or a friend...whatever.  At least you will be safe at home.   About that time some nearby female voice asked, Hey whats going on here?  I looked up and it was my own Carla!!!  I guess me talking to some blonde in a Miata in the parking lot needed some explaining.  The blonde thanked me profusely, after accepting my offered card. I waved at Carla and went into the store.  When I came out in about 3 minutes the blonde was still there, the Miata still running and the AAA wrecker was there frowning and scratching his head.  I patted the AAA guy on the shoulder and said, "There is nothing to see here, move along".  then went to my truck and departed the parking lot!  Think I promoted the Houston Miata Club?

    Greetings from a 124 Spider owner
    Greetings everyone - James here.  I've got a 2017 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth - really a ND Miata with different body styling, a NC manual transmission, and a Fiat 1.4L turbo engine.  The 124 community is pretty weak overall, and non-existent in Houston.  Am hoping everyone here is okay with my presence.
    I started as a VW/Audi guy, and have had a few ranging from an '01 A6 Quattro w/ turbo V6 and manual transmission, several GTIs - some with turbo upgrades, manual diesel Golfs and Jettas, to a manual AWD TT w/~280hp.  I spent a few years in a Subaru BRZ with stage 2 flex-fuel and suspension upgrades, but had a lot of issues with the dealership in regards to some factory flaws.
    I sold the BRZ back in June and picked up a 2017 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth - black with manual transmission, Recaro seats and Brembo brakes.  I'm loving the car so far...  It's got a ECU tune, upgraded diverter valve and some exhaust work.  I'm sure most of you are aware that the 124 is actually a ND Miata, made in Japan by Mazda, and shares everything except the sheet metal, transmission, and engine with the current MX-5.
    I loved the VW community, although never found a relatable BRZ/FRS/GT86 community.  I've very technical - anything from troubleshooting to rebuilding heads, and everything in between.  Looking forward to meeting some fellow gear heads, and am very interested in the meetup/cruise/community aspects of Houston Miata Club.

    Hello from Sugar Land
    I've had my 2012 NC PRHT for several months now.  Previously, I owned a red 93 NA with a black top.  I daily drive this car and love it.  Was inspired to get into Miatas after having owned a 1967 Triumph Spitfire back in the day that I dearly loved until a tree took her away.
    Have spent a lot of time reading through the forums and have found them to be quite informative.  I am interested in upgrading my "less than desirable" suspension.  Not in to racing, just want a handling for this car that I know can be had.

    Update--I'll bring a dessert, as KellyBob is bringing an appetizer.
    .
    OK, I'll bring an appetizer or a dessert. (Just kidding!)
    I will post my choice later, after I get our temporary "camp" kitchen better organized in a few days. I don't know what pans & utensils & spices I have available yet.

    I've decided to bring a fruit cake. We may have to ration it but what would Christmas be without a fruitcake. Don't worry I will still bring Phyllis

    Sorry, y'all, stuck in Tucson as usual.  Hope everyone has a great time!

    Brandy balls may be a stretch with just having moved so maybe white chocolate & macadamia cookies from Pete's Fine Meats Market.
