Midwest/Chicago GTG

Any interest here for a midwest GTG? We are possibly planning a Naperville, IL. for the first Sunday in May. Any interest?

I posted no further information here because of lack of interest. However there are several other forums that did show intrest, and we are getting together Sunday May 4th at Busse Forest preserve (by Woodfield Mall) around 1pm. You are welcome to attend, the more the merrier.

Yes, we did have a GTG last summer (actually three). There will be more as the summer progresses. Sometimes people from this forum just show up so I always post here just in case.

Some one should organize this. If my work load lightens, I would be willing to in the future [not bloody likely] But we really should do a Mercedesshop GTG this summer.

Mercedes museum

Knauz Mercedes Benz has a little museum at his Benz dealership in Lake Bluff Illinois It has some neat old Benz car's Gullwing's etc. and some other neat car's that he sell's at his huge automobile complex like BMW Panoz Mini Cooper Land Rover etc etc etc. Many cool restaurants and touring road's in this town as well.
Just a thoght but how about any Sat or Sun this summer. I could ask Bill Knauz about any special treatment we might get!

I live in McHenry IL

I would like to attend any forum gtg.


I dont think that my old diesels would be of much interest in any other car show.

Hope that we get a gtg sometime soon.


take care

I apoligize fellow enthusiasts...we have been organizing or GTG kind of by ear. We have had 3 actually in the past 4 weeks. We (4 or 5 190E 16v & an E320 as well as the ocasional M3) have been going to the Downers Grove car show on Friday nights. However these shows end next week, and we have no plan at this point to attend either of the remaining two. Where does this leave you guys? Well, for the past two years I have been organizing GTG through this site, bnzsport.com, and 190 Revolution. Lately because of time constraints I have just been emailing or calling those who have always showed up. This has backfired as now I see that several people had posted here, and I did not check. I feel bad because I love to meet fellow Mercedes AND euro car lovers...So I will check and post more frequently. If you would like a personal email invite...email me at chandler96@netzero.net. Thanks!
