    Thanks--

    When I got the STS, I was getting a little angry at all of the GM badmouthing, so I go an "Imported From Detroit" Bumper sticker and put it on the back. I know it is a Chrysler add, but it makes the right kind of statement.

    I am with you. Folks who think GM and chrysler should just go away are going to be facing a sad truth when the rest of the manufacturing in this country dies.

    I don't really like any chrysler product, but I give them credit for the imported from detroit tagline. Great marketing.
    I made a pact with myself that I want to buy domestic, or if it is an import, at least something that's assembled here.

    What part of So. Il ? I'm near Belleville in St Clair County. There are no "organized V events" down here, I usually hang out with the folks in Chicago. St Louis has quite a few as well as an STL chapter of SCCA.

    Re: From Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Ohio or Wisconsin?

    I have been on this forum for quite a while. Even so, I have not introduced myself here. The name is Dave Yaros. I am in Milwaukee, WI. I have 2 Cadddys; a 1955 Coupe de Ville and a 1992 Allante. I also own a 1962 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 convertible. The '55 CDV has her own web site - http://GrayLadyWebNG.com. So does the '62 Olds - http://www.freewebs.com/jeandaveyaros

    I am a "hands on" sort of guy when it comes to cars. So much so that I have a 2-post lift in my garage.

    I also edit and publish an online only, no ad newsletter that discusses the car collector hobby every month. It is titled Car Collector Chronicles. For anyone wanting to take a look, you will find it at - http://www.scribd.com/people/view/7936333-dave

    I am a member of the Cadillac-La Salle Club, the Cadill-Ikes Chapter, the Chicagoland Allante-XLR Chapter, the Oldsmobile Club of America, the Oldsmobile Club of America-Wisconsin Chapter and the National Antique Oldsmobile Club.

    There you have it ... .

    Just realized there was a regional thread out here so I figured I'd post up. The name is Mark & have had the '04 V for a few months now. Working on ironing out the kinks and fixing some things before modding it. So far it has an X pipe, resonators deleted, high-rise hood, and K&N filter.

    Loving the V and looking for other owners to meet up with.

    There are two or three major meets per year: Chicago Auto Show, Summer Midwest meet, and some go to Woodward Dream Cruise. I was lucky enough to attend all three this year. Had a blast!

    Oh yeah there was an Indy V meet, too.
