TDN NEWS: MAZDA MX-5 MIATA 30TH ANNIVERSARY MODELS BEGIN TO ARRIVE
One of those passionate fans securing a celebratory roadster is Gerald Blum of St. Petersburg, Florida. Mazda North American Operations was pleased to welcome Blum to Tyrone Square Mazda in St. Petersburg, Florida where he was one of the first to take delivery of a 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary in the U.S.
This will be the 13th Mazda the Blum family has owned, starting with a first-generation 1978 Mazda RX-7 that was the 249th unit produced. Blum is a regular at Tyrone Square Mazda having purchased seven other Mazda vehicles from them. Blum is a fan of the brand and, according to him, it was a “no brainer” to pre-order the anniversary vehicle to go next to his Soul Red Crystal 2016 MX-5 Miata Club.
“What I love most about Mazda is the experience of driving the car,” Blum said. “As a diehard Mazda enthusiast, I’m thrilled to be among the first to get the new MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary and cannot take my eyes off the brilliant Racing Orange paint scheme. Orange is the new red!”
Its striking Racing Orange paint scheme and unique, non-sequential serialized “30th Anniversary” badging commemorates the 30-year anniversary. While the refined Skyactiv-G engine, RAYS ZE40 17-inch Dark Gunmetal forged alloy wheels, orange Brembo front brake calipers and exclusive RECARO sports seats help heighten the trademark sporty driving experience of a MX-5 Miata. The world’s best-selling roadster will continue being a torchbearer for Mazda, helping to carry along its rich legacy and elevating the brand to a premium level.
