Check out the pictures here from previous years' events.
This is a perfect opportunity to get your cars buffed and shined up, ready for the summer driving weather that is (hopefully) just ahead. We’ll commence the activities at 10 a.m. (not a minute before).
Lee Johnson Mazda in Kirkland has offered their facilities to the club again this year as hosts for the event. Unfortunately, we will not be able to use their washing facilities this time. Please wash your Miata before arriving so we can get right to work on it!
Not only does the day provide all club members the chance to vacuum and buff their cars in preparation for summer driving, it also gives the folks at Lee Johnson some visibility to potential Miata owners who may want to consider owning one of these fabulous cars.
You can show up at 10 a.m. with your pre-washed Miata and start the process with vacuuming your car. After that, you can get in line for the buffing station, and follow that with a final coat of wax to bring your baby to it’s finest shine. All supplies will be provided by the club and Griot’s Garage in Tacoma, another of our sponsors for this event; all you need to bring is some polishing cloths for the final steps and your own elbow grease.
As in the past, if a non-member wants to detail a car, cost will be $20 (or you can just join the club for $30).
We do have a need for some additional volunteer buffers. We have a contingent of buffers who have graciously agreed to do this job for many years but for various reasons, they are unable to contribute this year. So now is the time for a new generation of buffing experts to step up to the challenge. You can contact Tom Millar and he’ll line you up with all the necessary tools and details to be a buffing rock star.
Lunch will be provided by the board in the form of homemade chili of varying kinds (including a gluten-free option) and hot dogs provided by the folks at Lee Johnson.
Once you finish detailing your car, plan to stay on hand until around 2 p.m. for the show-and-shine at the dealership. This is an essential component of our co-sponsorship with the folks at Lee Johnson Mazda, so don’t plan to cut and run as soon as you finish up. The reward for hanging out will be a chance to win some one-of-a-kind door prizes and perhaps a trophy for Best of Show.
Directions to Lee Johnson Mazda: From I-5, either direction take the 85th St Exit to Kirkland/Redmond. Lee Johnson is just off the highway and just off the exit ramp heading toward Redmond. If you turn toward the water, you've chosen the wrong exit!
