Anyone still around in the Chicago area
« on: February 12, 2018, 09:06:34 AM »
Hi,   Everybody I know it might be early but Iím thinking about Spring and Summer already.  Just trying to figure out what events to attend.   What events as a group would like to go to.  Is anyone interested in doing another group driving event this year?  (I had a good time on our last ones) Or maybe have an show of our own.  Well just some things Iíve been thinking about if anyone has anything to add feel free to

Hope to see everyone soon
      Dan

Thanks in advance,
John

They moved the Chicago Concours and "projected" a Concours on Northerly Island (old Meigs Air field on the lakefront) but gee, it has been 3 years now and nothing.  Likely because some palms in Chicago need to be greased (like every thing else).
  There is a new (this year) Concours connected to the Studebaker Museum in South Bend but, after looking over the desired cars, no classes to fit anything like Shelby Mustangs.  You might be able to stretch a Cobra by the rules as they seem to have "English/European car classes.

Thanks guys.
Chicago, crazy what they do to themselves up there.
An Invitational is nothing to fight over, it is good economically and news wise.
They ABSOLUTELY do not get it though.
National guard should be brought in like our Pres mentioned once.

Not only gangs, but the whole political group needs to be drained into a septic tank.
I know, I live in Illinois.

If anybody hears of another Invitational, would like to hear about it.
Dan 353, they only offer 2 classes, kind of a shame, but the curator did
tell me that they were flooded with Invitation requests.

We have sent paperwork last week to the Studebaker Concour board in hopes of an Invitation
May expand to Ohio an Pa.
With respect >>
John

I'm in Chicagoland and there is a Concours D'Elegance in Geneva Illinois around August sometime. If I find the link I will amend this post to attach it.

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Richard,
Thank you, they are having Mercedes and 70th year of SCCA celebration for 2018.
That still might be plausible .
Best regards,
John
