We hope that you will think this is one of the most innovative car related web sites on the Internet.
The initial motivation for creating this site was to provide Internet services to our own local car club. It was quickly decided that rather than help one car club, why not help ALL the car clubs. Our intention is to provide a site where car savvy but not computer savvy car clubs can put up and maintain their own individual part of our web site, thus quickly and easily getting a web prescence without all the hassel.
We want all car clubs to not only be able to post news and events, but also manage their membership roster, dues, and communications.
Please feel free to look around the public pages of our member car clubs. Come back often and see if any new clubs in your area have started posting information. Get your car club to start updating their section!

10/20 Thursday night-I have reserved a block of rooms under Lone Star Miata Club at La Quinta Inn & Suites in Palestine, 3000 South Loop 256. Room rate is $100.32 + tax per night, which includes breakfast. Please plan to arrive by 7am for driver’s meeting. We will depart at 8am on Friday.
Our drive will take us through East Texas countryside, through 3 national forests, over the South Toledo Bend Resevoir and Dam, and western Louisiana.
I have reserved a block of rooms under Lone Star Miata Club for Friday and Saturday nights at Staybridge Suites at 129 E. Kaliste Saloom Rd. (phone 337-267-4666, www.ihg.com/staybridge/hotels/) Room rate is $109/night + tax but is cancellable if needed. All rooms have kitchenettes.
If you feel pretty confident that you will be going, you can book directly through their website for $88/night + tax. However, this is the NON CANCELLABLE, PAY IN ADVANCE RATE.
Saturday is Cajun Food Tour day! I have reserved both the morning and afternoon tours,which have 14 seats each available ($52.25 per person). The tour lasts 3 1/2 hours, and there are 6 tasting stops, plus a guided tour with plenty of history- and story-telling by a born-and-bred for generations, true Acadian! Marie will pick us up at our hotel (Staybridge) and drop us off there as well.
The morning tour is at 10am (but be ready for pickup at 9:40am). The types of food that will be sampled are bakery/coffee shop items, as well as savory type foods. The afternoon tour is at 2:30pm (be ready to go at 2:10pm). The afternoon is more savory-last year we had boudin and cracklins, po’ boys, Cajun pizza, and more, and topped off with bread pudding!
To reserve your seats, please either call Cajun Food Tours (337-230-6169) or email them at email@example.com. Let them know you are with the LSMC group.
David and I will be on the afternoon tour. We are planning a morning drive around the Lafayette area, with plenty of time to get back and get ready for the food tour. For those going on the morning tour, I will have run sheets of the morning route.
Sunday morning, we will lead a short drive to the University of Louisiana-Lafayette campus. It is the only university in the country with a managed wetland onsite. It is home to a variety of fish, birds, and it has REAL ALLIGATORS IN IT!
After that, you are on your own to continue exploring Louisiana, or head on home.
