Club History

In the spring of 2008 Steven McGinnis who owns a 2000 Evolution Orange Miata pulled into Gatti's Pizza parking lot to eat supper. Bob and Karen Hayburn who was also in the parking lot began talking about each other's Miata. Bob asked Steve if he would be interested in starting a Miata club in Portsmouth, Ohio. Steve said yes and at that moment the Ohio Valley Miata Club was born and has been growing ever since.
