I belong to the MG Club of Long Island Centre and all I have is a Roadster
and Miata :)
It's about the people more than the cars. They know they can always depend

by them. They make fun of me but they know at heart I am, as they are, car
I belonged to a Miata club and hated it! Not car people, just people who own
the same car.
