    Re: Chi Town meet, janauary, whos up for it?

    O.K. sounds like the start of a plan. The show runs 8-17 February. So who has a preference of what day to go? Tickets are $10/day. I'll probably stay the weekend, but I really don't want to be there the weekend of Valentine's day (I'm hoping to spend it in Paris, France) so maybe the first weekend, weather permitting.

    I like the 9th or 10th. Everybody get to the show that morning when you want, we all meet up at a prearranged place for lunch and then go back, maybe another get-together for dinner and cruising to a picture shoot on the Navy Pier.

    Or better yet.. a picture shoot at my favorite spot:












    It is only 1.5 miles from Mccormick Place. We can grab some good grub at Bar Louie afterwards too.

    Yeah, perfect.

    We can meet up, shoot the shit, grab a bite, see who everyone is.


    Maybe if this works out, we can meet up in the summer for a car show or some shit.

    There is a Chicagoland Cadillac Lasalle chapter.

    I am a member and David with the '95 Fleetwood & '77 Deville has joined too.

    http://www.westofthelakeclc.com/

    They usually hold 3 or 4 shows per year.

    The big show at the first of Spring is the JC Whitney show. I got third place last Spring and second place in the Fall. We should all meet up for the Spring show!

    I bought that '97 Tahoe 2.5 weeks ago to replace the Roadmaster. I drove it for a week, hated the gas mileage and missed the LT1 power... so I sold it for a handsome profit and kept the Roadmaster

    So the Vortec Tahoe doesn't compete with a stock LT-1 B/D Body as far as power goes? I always wondered how the two faired, considering the weight is fairly close, and the Vortec and LT-1 both generate very similar power and torque numbers.

    The Tahoe drinks more gas and burns less rubber It was pretty boring, uncomfortable, bulky, and the fuel economy between the two cars was pretty substantial (5-6 mpg difference).

    Plus my Roadmaster now has a Cold Air Intake & PCM programming, so it is pretty peppy. It is getting a catback exhaust & some mild suspension mods after the new year.

    I am in if you guys put something together. I dont know if I would go to the auto show. I am already going to Detroit, and I hate driving downtown. Something in the burbs would be better. Depending on how many people come are in, I can have everyone over to my house for a bbq in the spring. Round Lake.
