Chicago Area GTG 7/9/06.

OK! Back by popular demand, we will be putting together a GTG in Kankakee for July 9th. We are about an hour south of the city. I'm trying to get a parking lot at the state park reserved so we can BBQ and hang out for an afternoon. This is open to all cars though most will be in M-B.
Let me know if you are interested in coming,
As I find out more I'll post up here
here is the Mapquest

The 9th, the 9th- what the he** are we doing on the 9th? I'll need to check with the SO- but I might be able to bring the 190 down- that would be fun. Being from Texas I love BBQ- but only if we can have beer with it! Please keep us posted! Thanks!

tennessee? i'm not going to even ask. haha. sounds like a fun trip matt. you should've taken the 240 for the trip. i love my 300 for roadtrips. cruising at 70-80 makes me and the car very happy.
-matt your going to be at the meetup right?
all i know is i want to pickup my pentas so i WILL be there hopefully.

everyone be sure to check "events and gatherings" for more details.

-Steven

i went there cause my friend (the girl u guys met at the last meet up) she used to live in tennessee along time ago, so we went there to visit. it was FUN!! we had to take her 2001 Dodge Intrepid, smooth ride, but holly crap it has issues. i just got home seriously like right now (had to jump on the forum ) and this morning we left from tenessee, i didnt think i was going to make it home, this morning the car started chugging. if it went over 2500 rpm's. it usually dose it in city traffic, but it started doing it on the highway. i was seriously praying, but after a good hour or so, it finially stoped doing it. so it was fun with slow acceleration and no power. so the 2001 Intrepid with only 62000 miles on it is going to the shop this week heheh


as you can tell, i hate dodge and Crysler, we have owned way to many, and they all crap out

Hey Steven, we got the main Pavilion at the main entrance. About thirty guys have said they would be there so we should have twenty or so

I might have my "new" 220Sb on the trailer for the GTG

Sorry I missed it- was reminded that I "promised" to take the SO to go see "The Lake House." It wasn't as bad as I had thought- but would have preferred to talk diesel... J
