As requested I like to get a show of hands for a V-Wagon get together somewhere in the Chicago area on a Saturday or Sunday. This thread is open to suggestions as to when and where. If you do make a suggestion, pick a few dates so that if there are conflicts for some people they will have a wider range of choice so that we get maximum participation. The venue could be exclusive to just a place for V-Wagon to meet or we could make one of the local car get togethers as a group. I hope we can get a good response. For my part, sometime after the middle of July and before the first of August or after the middle of August and to the middle of September works best for me. I'm willing to travel 50 to 75 miles to get to a meeting place.

I'm in. Same time periods are available for me as well, same distances good too. Western burbs? I would go as a group to other event as well- would kinda like to, actually.

Are there enough V wagons to do a meet? Why not all Vs?


I love it, Vagon snobs, FTW!!!

I have seen one very nice looking V wagon, thunder grey with the graphite wheels and yellow calipers. I also saw 1 impostor CTS wagon with a V on the back. Both in the northern burbs.

I suggest opening this to all Vs. I would be interested in going if that were the case. I have a sedan that is about to be returned to me with an LSX inside :cool2:

I have seen some other Chicago-area wagon drivers on the forum, but no V-wagons in person. Let's open it to all V's- better to have good critical mass- haha, us Vagon snobs will just have to mix with the short-roof types.

Hey,, no V snobs here! Its perfectly fine with me for a greater Chicago V (all V iterations) get together. And with that out of the way we get back to my original posting. Where and When? I put in my schedule. How about all the rest of the Chicagoland V owners posting what they would like to do for a gathering.

Hey Elliot, are you a sailor that i used to race in the Chi-Mack?

Yes, I did race in several Mac races and had a little bit of success with my various boats. Now I play around with cars as rounding up crew for them was almost as hard as getting the Chicago V group together. Come on people, let make it happen.

We did a meet at Volo. Plenty of space, they allow bbqing and their museum is quite impressive.

Volo is cool with me. I can do Saturdays 16, 23 and 30 of July.

I'm down and have a Vagon. The Supercar Saturday events are a good rendezvous time/place too. I'm moving to FL on June 28, so I'd have to meet before then.

Anyone in Chicago have an aftermarket exhaust on their Vagon that I'd be able to check out? Need to hear some options in person.
