One of the Black Ravens may have been me, by any chance were you at Strats last night? I saw a Stealth Gray STS-V there while I was waiting for my hotdog.

I also saw a Redline colored XLR down Rohlwing Rd too yesterday. Older gentleman and his wife cruising.

NW Indiana guy here, but my red V and I spend a lot of time on the south side, by UIC, and by the United Center.

We had three V's at the last test and tune at US 41. Looking at this thread, I bet we can have more next time.

I was just north of Chicago this weekend in Evanston for a lacrosse game (sister plays for Northwestern girls lacrosse). The traffic in Chicago is no joke...and that's coming from a guy that lives right outside of NYC. Pretty damn brutal, that's for sure.

That was me... and that was also me. I work in Northbrook and live just east of bloomingdale.

I did see that Red STS-V... almost broke my neck looking for the V badge as we passed each other. Somehow I totally missed the CTS-V... funny usually I'm on the lookout. We are almost neighbors... I'm in a Raven V though..

:grouphug: Last year Jimmy H helped put together a Cadillac meet for the guys on the other Cadi forum (Fleetwoods and Devilles and suchtits:caddy:). The event was held at the Volo Auto museum about 45 minutes north of Chicago. The museum gave us a spot to line up our cars and mingle in a grassy picnic area. It was fun and the museum has some pretty awesome cars. http://www.volocars.com/

There is probably room for 20 or more cars in the picnic area. Maybe afterwords, we could schedule a dinner stop. It's just an idea to get the ball rolling It doesn't have to be Volo. Any ideas? Any interest? PM me if youwant to help put this together. Maybe Jimmy will come back into the fold and join us.

checked out Volo last weekend...been a few years since i'd been there. lots of great cars and an excellent place to meet. how do we get the ball rolling.

KaMaSuTrA
04-20-10, 02:24 PM
Volo sounds like a cool spot, I would be down for that.

Here's another possible meet up idea; A local Chicago forum I'm an admin on hosts a meet up at Busse Woods Forest Preserve. We usually have a pretty good turn up of cars and everyone pitches in to provide stuff to bbq and drink. We get a permit for a grove, make it an all day event, and from there its usually a toss up of a cruise downtown or hitting up the local car spots. Whether we join up with them when they do it or we do our own thing, its up to you guys.

OK I'll call the Volo guys and see if we can get a spot. Depending on the availability I'll report back some dates. Anyone who would like to help organize PM me. Event ideas welcome. Jimmy H says he's in. Should we invite the V2 guys????

KaMaSuTrA

Should we invite the V2 guys????

I wouldn't mind if the V2 guys showed up. Old or new gen, its still a V to me.

don't mind if they come...more is better! Let know what i can do to help.



Doctornick: was that you driving south on broadway last night. Saw a black raven V driving south on boradway at granville about 4pmish

04-21-10, 07:54 PM
Volo is a great place. Lots of incredible cars there. It is a perfect spot for a meet. I would be happy to organize it (and even attend if you guys will have a former V owner :D)

It's only five minutes from my house, so I am the logical choice to get something going, if you guys want to congregate there. There is not much else around there, but some good places to eat, not far away. If someone wants to bring a bbq, they allow that on the grounds (as long as you clean up after yourself).

Let me know. V2 guys should be invited as well.

If you guys are interested, post up. I can start a poll, and link the V2 guys and see what we can get going.

JimmyH
04-21-10, 07:57 PM
Another idea is hang out at Volo morning/afternoon, then cruise to great lakes dragway. It's only a 45 minute drive. On a Saturday anyway. It would have to be on a weekend where they don't have any major events. Get enough cars to commit, and they might accomodate us.

All right Jimmy, why don't you get things started since you've already done one primo event at Volo. A few guys have offered help if needed. PM me and I can help also. Maybe we can get a forum vendor to show up to do a table top product showcase. Volo and the drag strip in one day could be alot on the plate. Maybe we need a "V weekend". People might travel a bit for a weekend event? Now about you attending.....we'll have to think about it. If we let Jimbo and his evil minions attend from the other forum, then I guess you should come to.

Another Chicago V guy here. I live out in Elgin. I have a 07 Redline that I bought last Fall from Grossinger. My neighor has a silver V too.

Just out of curiosity, where is a good shop to take the V for a complete look over? Mine is waiting for new clutch master cyl, new powersteering pump and motor mounts ( they all finally came in). I bought this car last fall, still under warranty and I want someone to help me understand what else may need replacing prior to the warranty expiring. Seems like every Caddy dealer I bring it too is surprised when they see it is a Stick... :(

I swear the car is not as tight as it should be and I want to know what is about to go but can't seem to find a reputable dealer that will actually go over the car 100%.

Any way I am up for a meet. I do meets with my other ride all the time.

Volo it is?? sounds good.

JimmyH
04-22-10, 05:43 PM
Well there seems to be interest. So let's decide. Volo Auto Museum seems to be an acceptable spot. I am also recommending Great Lakes Dragway if you guys want to do some racing. But that is up for debate.

Volo Auto Museum (http://www.volocars.com/)

Great Lakes Dragaway (http://www.greatlakesdragaway.com/)

Directions (http://www.mapquest.com/mq/1-gstNnk6niMby)

Since I am so close to it, I will do the organizing. But you guys must decide the date. Hence the poll.

Let's decide on a month first, then decide on a date. Post up any other thoughts as well.

JimmyH
04-22-10, 05:46 PM

Epic SHO BBQ is on August 14th. So I'll be in the Chicago area for that day. MVP Tracktime has a track day on August 9th so that previous weekend could make a nice combo.

JimmyH
04-22-10, 06:23 PM
Ted was interested in August also, so you guys need to vote.

04-23-10, 12:33 PM
August is fine with me.... for all of the local guys how aobut something in the next few weeks? We used to do Hooters in Downer's Grove once a week back in the day, anyone up for that or another centrally located spot?

gnxs
04-23-10, 12:45 PM
Any month is fine with me although late in the year (September) would likely be better.

I would also highly suggest Byron, not GLD, if you decide to do any drag racing. Even a moderately modded "V" runs the risk of being booted from GLD or having to back it down. Except for RSD's, they've been pretty tough on tech.

KaMaSuTrA
04-23-10, 12:57 PM
Based on the current votes, it looks like this is happening in August lol.

I'm down for Volo and GLD.

04-25-10, 04:09 PM
I know I don't have a V.. but I would love to attend, bringing the T/A if I may.

I think Volo is a good spot, it worked last year.

The cruise nights are starting soon too.. there is one for everyday of the week. Maybe if we meet up at a couple around the chicagoland area then we can have several meets throughout the summer?

What I COULD do is come out for the weekend of the 7th and stay for MVP's Autobahn CC track day on the 9th, leave the V with Jimmy, fly home Monday night and then fly back Friday night for epic SHO BBQ on Saturday.



















And of course, take V back from Jimmah...

The consensus seems to be the weekend of August 21st.

Does everyone still want Volo Auto Museum to be the gathering spot? Is is still pretty far away so there is plenty of time for suggestions. If everyone decides on this, I will give them a call in July sometime to reserve some space.

Super!

If Volo is not desirable to the group, we can meet at my home...plenty of parking for 10 or 15 V's and a truck or two!

I am just not centrally located, Wadsworth is way north...but easy to get to, between Rt41 and 94...

Or maybe I could pressure Ron Durchin to open up Autowerks in Northbrook to us on the 21st, and invite a few of his exotics...

And the old stand by would be a gathering at Westech in Silverlake WI...Norm Brandes would probably be willing to put us on the dyno for a minor charge...if people wanted to do it...I also love the facilities at Cantigny (http://www.cantigny.org/) they have a great auto show there in September...

Just suggesting...open to any ideas.

Ron is a member on another board that I am on. I could shoot him a PM about this.

I know they are working on a Chicago based Cars & Coffee, there is also the 1st Sat of the month Supercar Cruise that we could hit up.

Just throwing out a few options.

Prof
05-14-10, 11:06 AM
I surfaced the idea to Ron on Facebook and he was fine with doing the GTG at his place. The Supercars event is on the first Saturday of each of the summer months...(great event by the way)...

I'm still up for the meet.... one small wrinkle though...

The wife is getting shipped out for work, so I'll have my two kids.. ages 3 1/2... so I'll have to bring them with me. Which mean I pry will not be staying all day... as soon as they get cranky I'm gone.

Also, not sure about letting them mill around with you lot :)

I used to hate kids before I had them, so if you don't want kids... speak now and I promise my feelings will not be hurt.

(yes I am still looking for someone to watch them so I can escape and meet you guys... TBD)

I figure on getting there around 1pm. I will be parked in the NW corner of the lot in my gold Pilot. So you guys can look for me. They close at 5pm I think. But I have to leave around 3 or so anyway to go to a birthday party. If you guys want to arrive earlier than 1, that's fine. I am sure they open around 9 or 10. I can get there earlier if needs be.

I confirmed us for noon. I will get there then. They are giving us discounted admission again, $8 per person. I think the regular price is $10 or $12.

There is a playground for the kids. There is also a reasonably priced cafeteria with pretty good food.

Below is an aerial view. Take Rt 12/59 (Rand Rd) or Rt 120 (Belvidere Rd) to Volo Village Road, north on Fox Lake Rd, and follow the red line to the back entrance. I will be in the lot in the general area of that red dot in my Pilot.

Here is the address:
27582 Volo VIllage Road
Volo, IL 60073

If you go in the back entrance, just go right and you should see me (assuming you get there after 12). If you go in the main entrance, just drive all the way straight ahead to the back of the lot.

You know, if anyone happens to pass near the Detroit area on their way (hint hint), you should stop in on Thursday or Friday night and take one pass up Woodward before getting back on the expressway to Chicago. I've got stuff going till about 8:45 Thursday night, but Friday afternoon/evening is open. It'll be rockin' big time from about noon Friday right on through the weekend.

Josh already sold my (his) V. Too late. I am thinking Camaro SS again now. But I keep changing my mind, so who knows.

Did you do a transplant Gizmo?
No, looking at building a smaller version: all under the hood - 2 trumpets, small tank or all electric.

OMG!!! THAT'S the Vette from the first Death Race!! I was looking for that the entire time we were there. If you ever have a chance, watch the first Death Race (Sylvester Stallone is like 19 or something....hilarious!) <- plus there's boobies in it :2thumbs:

One of my favorite movies, I fugured this would be right up your alley!


Ok, now I'm gonna have to post up some pics of various nonsense. Jimmy found the car that has a bed in it.....Banned from Drive Ins all over...wooO! :lildevil:
Is jimmy trying to buy it?


Whatever pic you have...post it :)Cannot out of respect fo Jimmy :lildevil:

I have at least a year to go before I get another car. When it comes to cars, I am worse than Michelle changing outfits in the morning. I am sure I will change my mind 100 times before I buy something.



alot of the cars that used to be at volo are gone now.I don't think Shane's Death Race car was there. Another car that was missing was that original condition Mustang. Do you remember that one Rob? The one that was in a bubble?

:rofl: about michelle and outfits. It is an experience finding the car and can be half the fun.

Too bad on the death race car, was quite cool. Do you think they sold it?

Hmm... Don't remember that one. Did get a shot of Eleanor though...

I've only had it a couple months, give me a little time. I figure Z06 wheels, a small air horn, D3 stage 2 intake, and a new tune oughta 'bout do it. And of course a CarPC docked between the seats (Already test-fit the joystick shifter - fits perfectly).

Hell I've been too busy "drivin' the wheels off the thing" to do any mods. 7000 miles in 2 1/2 months. Been thru a full set of tires and an extra pair for the rears. :cool2:

Too much fun!

This will probably be the last meet of the year...by October the weather is pretty wet...and most of the owners will not drive their exotics in the rain.

See you there!
