    O.K. I'm in. Should arrive Saturday morning for some shopping and then check-in at the hotel for a short nap before the cruise.

    Hehe, you stayin at the Super 8 Gizmo??

    Glad I made all the reservations with room for extra people!!

    Also, you are required to race one of the 3.6 CTSs. There has been a lot of debate as to who would win. I think I will take you but my car has developed a problem this week- I think I have a failing cat. Seems like it is clogging so I may have lost some power. We will see!

    Also, my phone number is 515-202-4737. Call me when you get in or if you need anything!

    Yes, I did reserve a room at the Super8/Econolodge for Saturday night. Too bad I can't go out partying with you guys, but I have another meet Sunday in Chicago. Just want to do a little shopping, show, sleep, and go.

    I'd love to put the CTS kids in their place, but that could be a problem. I hotrodded my 95 Eldo and got all of 184000 miles out of it before the motor gave up, this one I'm setting up as a cruiser (although it is tempting.)

    HAHA, you do realize that I have destroyed my brothers STSs more times than I can count. A stock Eldo has almost zero chance against me. You V8 guys underestimate us.... LOL!!!

    But it was soooooo good! This was a great meet guys. Well planned, good attendance (at least by is V cars ) Cant wait to hear the flack I'm game get for that comment. J just feel bad that J hadn't done any mod other than the grille. The list of my mods aren't planned for completion till fall. I'll keep you guys posted.

    It was really good meeting everyone. I appreciate all the help you guys gave me about my mods. Maybe next time we will be able to convince the Allante driver log join us and maybe get an XL R on board. My pics of the '41 caddy are crap so l if anyone has some decent shots of it send me a PM.

    A great time was had by all this weekend! Excellent food! Really enjoyed meeting everyone, too! Many thanks to NickC50310 for taking over the planning after my new job in Chicagoland took me out of the action for a while.
    Nick--really nice job, man! Nice to meet you and your brother for lunch Thursday, too.

    Chad, gdwriter: enjoyed looking through your brochures. gdwriter: Hoover was a great addition to our meet. Thanks for driving out!

    Jesda:Nice exhaust, and I enjoyed the Q's workout at the Target parking lot. Appreciated your humor and your bumper sticker!

    kael: You are too funny, man... You should do stand-up comedy. Maybe we can hook up in Chicagoland for a genuine Chicago-style pizza. Glad you enjoyed your meal at Latin King. I can appreciate going to a new area and trying what is your hometown's famous specialty (Italian in this case)

    90Brougham350: Enjoyed chatting with you! Congrats on your college graduation, good luck with your engagement, and best wishes on your career.

    To the V-series guys: Enjoyed hearing your cars--both the stereos and the tires upon steep acceleration!! Sharp color, too.

    kfx, gdwriter: CPAP's rule!! Woohoo!

    I came back to the hotel room and left a terrible mess in the sink, toilet, shower... pretty much vomit everywhere. Worse, the sink was clogged and overflowing, forcing me to scoop out last night's veal and zucchini with my fingers. I was finally able to unclog the sink with soap and shampoo, then washed and scrubbed my hands for a good ten to fifteen minutes. Good thing this room has two bathrooms.
    I'm leaving an apology note and a generous tip for the cleaning staff.

    This is the 1,000th time I'll say this:
    I'M NEVER DRINKING AGAIN.

    Until next time.



    I took about 400 pictures, which I'll upload to the server tonight and make a "best of" pic thread.
