The First Miata Club in the USA   



Detailin' Day

  • Coop's Miata, Maple Valley


  • Let us know you're coming!

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).

This year's Detailin' Day will be at Coop's Miata in Maple Valley. Bill Cooper, a lifetime member of the club, has offered his property again to host this year's event.

One of our most popular events, the day provides all club members the chance to vacuum and buff their cars in preparation for summer driving.

You can show up at 10 a.m. with your 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.

If you'd like to volunteer to help our expert buffers by buffing and polishing cars, no one would mind. We'll provide the supplies and buffing equipment and you can provide the elbow grease. Our longtime buffers, past and present, will be on hand to coach you through the process. Obviously, we do have a need for some additional volunteer buffers. You can contact Tom Millar at  and he’ll line you up and explain the process (and the perks) of being a volunteer buffer.

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).

Due to guidelines regarding social distancing, we ask that everyone bring their own lunch and a lawn chair for eating. After cars are polished and shined, plan on a little time to enjoy the afternoon and checking out the cars.
