Anyone planning on attending the Chicago Vintage Mustang Club show at the Autobahn Country Club on September 9th?

  Well, looks  to be heading toward a rainout.  Keep your fingers crossed.  Usually this show is a couple of weeks deeper into the month but you take the dates you get.

I plan on attending weather permitting.  Don't want to drag an old car to a mud hole...  Any chance show will be held in paddock area if grass areas are too soft?

Thanks,

 9/*/2018 @ 11:00 AM:  Well, seems the crossed fingers worked.  Rain will be fifty to senenty miles south.  Cool.  Always a good gathering of Fomoco stuff, plus the track parade laps.

  147 cars on a nice partly sunny and breezy day.  All cool.  Give me  couple of days and I'll post some pictures.
  Ah, I will say this:  maybe the club (not SAAC) ought to ask if some of the cars entered in the Shelby class are real.  No way can a GT 500 be built at plant "F" and have a vin beyond #3225 right?
  And, although cool, a "Backdraft" built replica is NOT a Cobra.

  The cars mentioned.  The 66 GT 350 H has a Paxton on it.  Backdraft Kit car. No photo of the "F" plant car.  Joe Potema's 69 GT 500  (recently featured in MCA's Mustang Times), and my car #0036. 
As they say, anyway, it's all about the Track Parade laps.....
