I'm with Gene, I'll have no idea who any of you are, but thanks for sharing your potato salad! I had actually gotten the Mustang out and driven it that morning, but was not happy about the sprinkles that kept starting and stopping. I can still make it Oct. 2.
who are you people ??? and git your grubby hands outa my taters. I'm strickly in the 73 only club.... these other guys, well I don't know , maybe nother club osifer. they just like parking next to nic cars..hahahahaha
Well left the house at 8:30 got up their at about 9:20 along with a couple thousand other people.I didnt have any way to contact anyone so I turned around. The cops were not letting anyone enter the woods for grove 28 and were stopping traffic on golf to allow people who parked in the Buisness park to cross the street. So I turned around and came home. The upside it was a beautiful morning to cruise in the BOSS for about 75 miles round trip.I want to get some money to Jason for him getting the permit for last weekend and taking time out of his day to get it( Jason please e-mail me your address [email protected]).I would also be willing to give a little extra for maybe next years picnic so we get a permit and dont have to worry about finding a place to have it that day(but the weather always plays a factor). Anyway I hope to make it to at least one or two club meetings this fall/winter to meet some more members. Thanks again to Jason for all the organizing he does and hopefully we will have better luck next time. Mike
Well - unfortunately it was too hard to get the word out to everyone
this morning, but we did find a good unused place to picnic on the south
side of Higgins road. All the JDF folks were up off of Golf Rd, so there was
nobody around higgins.
I told one of the traffic cops to direct all the old Mustangs to the Higgins
entrance, and it seems like he did catch most of the cars that went by there.
If you gave up without talking to them and went home - I apologize for not
finding out about the conflict sooner and getting the word out sooner.
For those of us who did find the meeting spot, thanks for coming out!
We had at least 15 cars, spouses, a handfull of kids, and good weather
for the majority of the day.
We saw the dark clouds coming around 3pm and everyone dispersed fairly fast.
I made it back as far as Naperville before the skies opened up. I now know
about all sorts of places where my car is less than water tight, and the
entire exterior of the car, undercarriage and all got very wet.
Here's to the weather forecasters who all said it would hold off till 8pm:
:chainsaw: :chainsaw: :chainsaw:
I got most of the water vacuumed out when I got home, and have a big window
fan sitting on the console blowing at full blast. :horror:
It was still worth it. Nice to see such a huge turnout!
We made it on to 53 going north just when it really hit. I just kept it between some white lines and putted along about 40-45. After a while Kevin looked up from his video game and said "Dad I can't see anything." We stopped at a gas station on rt.12 and waited for it to slow down a little. Then the rest of the way ome wasn't bad. Good thing I put new defroster ducts in this summer.
Anyone interested in a good set of 14 inch steel rims off of my 73 Mustang? Dunlap raised whites 235 60 R 14s are mounted and balanced with lots of tread left. Located in Channahon. Just making space in my garage.....
I have been perusing the online car sales websites and discovered something rather strange. I would find a car on a site, listed for a ridiculously attractive price, beautiful pictures, wonderful description for sale in a particular town. I would cut and paste part of the...
Well, here we are again a week or two before the annual show. Are Corvairs Muscle cars? Studebakers? My point is....it doesn't matter. This is a fantastic show, and, as members of the Local Chicago Vintage Mustang club, we ought to think about getting in it next year. Although I'll agree...
