About Us

Treasure Coast Miata was started in 2009 to provide a low cost alternative for those DIY’rs and Spec Miata racers looking for quality new & used parts for their Miata’s. Whether it is daily driver, street performance upgrades, track day/autocross, Off Road Miata's or Spec Miata construction and support we have you covered. At Treasure Coast Miata (TCM) we pride ourselves on always putting the customer 1st and being extremely responsive with customer inquiries, questions and shipping. If it fits on a Miata and we don't stock it then we will find it for you.

TCM was a natural offshoot of our love for all things racing, whether it’s bikes, NASCAR, Off Road or Road Racing we like it. The Treasure Coast Racing team has 3/4 SCCA Spec Miata’s that we campaign in the tough SE Division Spec Miata Road Racing and Endurance Series (one is always under construction). We also have one Chump Car in competition and one also under construction. Please check out our Racing Team Page.
