Miata Day at the Museum of Transportation 2008

August 2, 2008

We had a record turnout for our annual fundraising event, with the proceeds again going to support the Dana Farber Cancer Fund. Eighty two Miatas of all years, levels of modification and detail were on display. The weather started out warm and sunny but gradually darkened, threatening showers. The showers managed to hold off until just after everyone left the event. The Nutmeg Miata Club form CT joined us after enjoying their own tour of a local brewery. A great time was had by all including members and guests from CT, MA, NH, & RI.
