20 years of MX5s and other 20th anniversaries.

Last month (on the 20th actually) a celebration was held to mark the 20th Anniversary of the Mazda MX5 and took place at Mazda's Miyoshi Proving Ground at Hiroshima. Over 1600 MX5s took part and at the end of the day, the whole lot of them did a parade lap of the track. Next Sunday South Australian MX5 owners get their turn with a gathering of the little roadsters at the Birdwood Motor Museum. They may not quite get 1600 I would imagine. If you would like to know more about this upcoming event give Roger a call on 0402 428986.Another 20th Anniversary is one that Peter Garvin is celebrating. 20 years ago he married his "beautiful wife Jessica." It is also the 20th anniversary of the Bolwell National Meeting in Perth, which as it turned out, did not take place over Easter, but later in the year, and Peter and Jessica's honeymoon comprised a drive across the country and across the Nullabor in the Nagari sports. I can't think of a better honeymoon and a great way to get to know Bolwells. They are still together.
I presume they will celebrate this big event by doing the "re-enactment" at the next National Meet, also in Western Australia.

Remember when your tailpipes were grey from running leaded petrol? The pipes on the Nagari are a lovely shade of grey in the Nullabor pic
