    I know the sales managers at Luxury Motors-Downers Grove (Kyle Khalil and Ray Omran)... and I met Joe Abbas (the owner of all the LM dealerships) when I was test driving a '97 840ci they had a couple months ago.

    That could be fun to go test drive some used exotics. Is that possible?

    I got the Ferrari stuff last year, now I want some Lamborghini apparel.

    Oh, BTW, there's a new Bentley dealer up near my place. I think I should go see if they're all stuck up pricks too! LOL!

    I was trying to see if any of the SHO guys would go on the following weekend. They're mostly going this weekend as well. I was hoping someone would do the following weekend. I've got work and an all night rally in VT with my brother on the 14/15th.

    I've got $260 in credit with Midwest from a trip to Texas I canceled on last year. But I need to use it by April or it's gone. Airfare would've been $0 for me...

    On Saturday (the presumed day we spend downtown), would anyone else rather take the train downtown? Ticket will be around $5, should save lots of time driving around and paying for parking. Also a CTA card for using the el would be about $3.

    Yeah that'd work for me. Chicago driving was a nightmare. Does that train lead to Midway Airport for Gary too?

    Train is fine for me, too. I believe the Orange line runs out to Midway. But I would like to put my bags somewhere before schleping around town.

    Yep, orange line runs to Midway and can take you right down into the loop. If you want to put your bags somewhere though, we can arrange for someone to pick you up at the airport first, then we'll convoy to a train station and go downtown. Ride there takes around 45 minutes. In fact, the Sears Tower is just a block down the street after you get out of Union Station.

    Re: Chicago Auto Show 2009

    What do you all want to do on Saturday? You could probably hit the Sears Tower in the morning. I know it sounds boring but the Museum of Science and Industry is a blast. It is probably the coolest museum I have ever been to. If you did want to do that in the afternoon I could pick up gdwriter on the way there as I would drive. I have no interest in the Sears Tower (its the type of thing you only do once) and I can park at the museum for free. I would join you for dinner but would not stay in the city very late unless I decide to crash at my aunt's condo on Logan Blvd. that night.

    I remember the Museum of Science and Industry from a trip I made in 1997, and I loved it. I would definitely be up for checking that out again. If you guys want to do the Sears in the morning, that's OK with me.

    If we end up doing Sears in the afternoon, then, yes, I'd appreciate a pickup at the airport to put my bags in a trunk before taking the train downtown. I'm flexible.

    My roommate just dumped his gf so he's got free time and money to tag along now. Probably taking the Ford F-truck.

    Re: Chicago Auto Show 2009

    I would like to go to all the hot car dealers on Ogden sometime Saturday morning, and if we get to the Bentley dealer between 9 and 10 AM, Nicki told us we can go see her place and dogs. She lives right behind that Bentley dealer on Ogden. Nicki said she'd take us to breakfast at a place called Omega. So perhaps we could do that then go to the Sears and Museum of Science and Industry in the afternoon then Giordano's for dinner?

    And we should do that Billy Goat grille or whatever it's called on Friday night, if possible.
