    Come on down we are always open to new people, the chicago meets are almost cult like without the cult atmosphere.

    There is probably nowhere else on earth you will see shirtless bums on bikes, kegs and a mariachi band in the same place at the same time.

    CULT is probably putting it mildly at best. Lets recap the last few years: At least 2 installs during the meet, countless removal/reinstalls (not necessarily at the meet), shooting for the record on the world's longest ongoing installation (how many month was that back seat out of the car), at least a dozen breakages and half fixed by committee on the spot, two fires, one jump start, always at least two users on time at 11AM and at least two to be thrown out of the park at closing time. Never a drunk, never a fight, always too much food and drink, AND [HL]WOMEN [/HL]ACTUALLY SHOW UP(more than once in some cases) AND AREN'T BORED TO TEARS!

    this all still being held up at D&B's right? i got like 4000 of them credits to spend in the gift shop (^_^)

    I KNOW EXACTLY WHERE THAT POTHOLE IS!!!!!!! Tried to swallow my Mustang.

    Unless the cars going to be a trailered show car, I don't recommend doing the steering wheel airbag to TV swap - Illinois cops love ticketing for that. Boy do I know...

    Plus I'm almost used to Chicago drivers and you'll need that airbag sooner than later

    Got this pic published in the Cadillac Forums calendar (I'm June)!!

    Also got my summer wheels on and on my initial test drive I blew out the silicone protecting the spokes on both front wheels.

    Back to the factory they go. Maybe next month. So I have to limp to the St Louis Meet with three spokes and a factory wheel.

    for those who cant tell what the 3rd pic is, its the knuckle that the left rear strut sits in, and its 'blown up', the grade 8 or whatever bolt shattered, all i have left of it is the head, the nut and rest of the bolt prolly found their way into someones radiator

    Well, I'm planning on coming down.
    I haven't put in a system yet, but have been planning to for almost 2 years now.
    Hope I could get some good ideas, and maybe some helpful tips!
