    Re: Chicago Meet in August!!

    Either weekend is fine by me, but I'd much prefer a spring / early summer meet. But I'm not organizing this, so I'll just keep my mouth shut.

    Re: Chicago Meet in August!!

    I too would prefer a late spring/early summer meet but I am game for anything. I have a feeling that dragging the new Brougham will be similar to the van (slow and retarded looking) and me against Chad's S class will be the worst drag race in history.

    Re: Chicago Meet in August!!

    I'm down for either weekend as well. Gives me plenty of time to get my car dialed in. Maybe even put something...extra on it. My family is planning to take a vacation in July (my only month off for summer), so that will get the 1000 miles I need to break in the trans after it's rebuilt, and we'll be ready to hit the strip.

    Re: Chicago Meet in August!!

    I voted for the later weekend, but can do either one. Count me in.

    I'll likely have to fly, since it would be five days driving each way. I don't think I'll have enough vacation time to do it since my sister just texted me that she's booked the timeshare in Hawaii for December 20-27. So if it's a choice between driving to Chicago or Hawaii, Hawaii wins. But I will come out. I've had a great time at every single meet.

    Either works for me right now. The Woodward Dream Cruise starts the 15th, and that is all I had planned for the Fleetwood in August.
    1996 Cadillac Fleetwood "SS"- sold but not forgotten
    1994 Cadillac Fleetwood- the sleeper project
    2002 Pontiac Trans Am Collectors Edition WS6 Conv't- the show car
    2006 Mini Cooper S BRG 6spd- the autox gokart
    2014 Range Rover Sport V8 Supercharged- wife's daily driver
    2014 Ram 1500 Laramie Hemi Crew 4x4- daily driver/tow vehicle

    Ok, taking that into consideration, the meet will now take place in a corn field in Western Indiana.

    HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY JESDA!

    One doesn't. However, I have two weeks of vacation, and I would eat up most or all of that driving from Oregon to Chicago. So I need to conserve my vacation days so I'll have enough for my week in Hawaii.

    I do get a certain number of "personal" days, plus some of the days I'd be in Hawaii are holiday, so I don't have to take a full week of vacation time for that trip.

    Re: Chicago Meet in August!!

    I'd like to visit the Museum of Science and Industry at some point because that place is just too freakin' cool (and the last time I was there was in 1997). But otherwise, I don't need to go into the city.
