Holiday Mazda Drive Re-Cap
by Don Gervais

   When I stopped for fuel before I left for the Holiday Mazda Drive in Fond du Lac the sun was shining and the weather was quite comfortable so I tossed my jacket on the passenger seat and dropped the top. As I got within 15 miles of my destination the clouds appeared and it started to cool off. Yep, here is the cold front. I just turned on the heat because I am just cruising down the road in my Miata with the top down and life is good. When I got to the dealership n Fond du Lac it was cool but no rain and the forecast called for the whole day to be like that. Fine with me as I am no fan of real hot weather and my car likes to gulp in lots of cool air anyway. I met with Jeff the sales manager at Holiday and he informed me of the activities they had planned for our group. There was an area in front of the dealership building just under a large Mazda emblem set aside where people could park their cars and have photos taken. After a nice lunch put on by the dealership and a drivers meeting 22 Miata’s, 4 RX 7s,and 1 lone Speed 6 were escorted out of town by the Police on our way to a wonderful drive full of many twisty roads. The best part was the fact that it was cool and cloudy and there was no one out and about and we had all the cool twisty back roads to ourselves. We took our break at the National Glacier center in Dundee and I gave people the option to go get ice cream if they wanted. No one took up that option but I did see a lot of sweatshirts being purchased at the Glacier Center. Once back on the road it was cool and clear cruising except near the end of the drive where we lost 4 cars. After about 10 minutes we gathered up our lost brethren and made our way to our final destination for supper. A great day. Good friends, good roads, good food and no rain.
