Back in April, Mazda produced its one-millionth MX-5 Miata. To celebrate this historic milestone, Mazda has been taking the vehicle on a worldwide appreciation tour to thank fans and owners for their loyalty toward making the MX-5 Miata the best-selling roadster of all time.

That car will be making its stop at Daytona Mazda on Saturday, September 17, between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. We’ve crossed paths with the car a couple times this year and even got to sign our names on it. You could add your name to the car, too!

Mazda says “fans and enthusiasts will have the opportunity to sign one of the 4,320 spots reserved for the U.S. leg of the tour, as well as receive T-shirts and other memorabilia to commemorate the event.”

We’ll see you there.

Tim and I have already signed. Ironically I picked my spot and then realized that it's right above Peter Calhoun's. Peter is our friend at BFGoodrich.

I'd love to sign one- as an owner of a single owner Miata. That would be cool.

We're still calling it a Miata. Mazda should probably just give in. The name has cachet.

We signed it today. Well, actually, Mrs. Editor signed it. I signed it when in Monterey last month and didn't feel it was fair to do so twice.

Added bonus: She got a free T-shirt, and we both got bagels for breakfast.

And here's mine:

That's Tim's signature next to mine. At the time, I didn't even realize that I signed just above Peter Calhoun, our friend at BFGoodrich. What are the odds?

I missed it in Houston. The website said the event ended at 8, not 6. They were breaking down when I arrived. I understand there is a track event there tomorrow.
