I have noticed that there is quite a following here in Florida. Has there ever been any talk of a get together? I have been collecting parts, but have not started the process. I have yet to see a Miata LS conversion in person. Any ideas? David

I'm in Plant City and there are several others around. There is a local club that meets regularly tampabaymiatas.net but nothing V8 specific.

I'm in florida, Indian river county to be exact. Sadly my car isn't done yet, but I'd be game for a meet up. Give me some inspiration and motivation.

If I'm not working and it isn't raining I'll usually go out there.

What department do you work for?

I have a 95 Miata that actually runs and drives. I bought a 8.8 diff , a t56 from another hcfr guy and LS oil pan. I'm looking to do the v8r kit. I see a Tampa address. Can we buy directly from there?

It's in Thonotosassa fl actually. and I've never actually been there but all my parts have shipped from there and They shipped my subframe kit for free since I'm in florida. You need to call in though, the online system doesn't recognize the location.

They do not have a store front but I'm sure you could call them and arrange pick up or delivery.

Sure, maybe October/Nov? Seems like somewhere around Lakeland would be a good meeting point.

There's the Hooters right there at I-4 where the All Florida meet used to be held. Let me know, I'm in and can get some others to come as well.
