Default Question: Mobile app for our Miata community!

Please feel free to let your imagination go wild answering this question:
If someone were to create an app just for the miata community, what do you thing it should be?

Some background story:
I have moved out of the State to Singapore for work, a land where weekend racer/garage DIY king is a lux activity because cars are damn expensive here!
I managed to find it true that if you really love something, you will manage to find the way back to it.

So months ago I had an idea to build a FREE mobile app just for us! I work in finance field and know nothing about programming and user interface design. So I am starting from scratch with the help from two friends.

I have some ideas of what the app should be, but I dont want to build something and eventually find it's not something you guys want.

So here I am seeking opinions: What app do you want?

P.S. If the majority of feedback syncs with my idea, I am trying to kick off a series of question polls across several major miata forums in the states. So for I have miata.net, clubroadster.net, miataturbo.net, norcalroadster.net (that's where I am from! YEAH Bay Area!) Please feel free to let me know any forums I should get opinions from!

Look forward to all of your feedbacks!

Ken

It should be able to locate other "like" minded males by GPS and auto text them for good times and meets.

There are already apps that do that. They are called augmented reality apps.
