Hey all, I went and checked out the Plainfield Cruise Night yesterday. Wow, a LOT of cars ... I took pics and will post them later. I have to say tho, I did not have the guts to park in the "special area" without reinforcements... I think en masse, we will be fine. I'm new to this whole car meet thing and didn't want to upset anyone, so if I'm just bein silly...please let me know.

Blue, do you want me to post details on the track day info you posted above? I like my new avatar too, fitting for the windy city eh? Even tho that's not really why it's called that, but semantics. bah!

Anyone else want me to update the first post here with any info, feel free to PM me if I'm not on the ball!!!

Yeah, I'll get your specifics on those track days once I get home from work tonight. Also for the car meet thing, gearheads are some of the most openminded cool people to be around. That being said they do not like ricers and/or trash talkers. Its not a big deal to them to have new people unless they are close minded, which is a very small amount.

Plainfield Cruise Night Pics

Hey folks,

Here are some of the photos I took while wandering around the Cruise Night. Think this seems like a good time? The nice thing is, it's already organized and we would just have to come up with a pre-meet place so we can cruise in as a group. I'm pretty familiar with the area, so I can figure out a good place to meet on Rte 59.

Any thoughts???

I want something less expensive, like a $5K track car that I can do time attacks (solo I) in without worrying about destroying a $20K car like the RX-8. I might just buy another car for the track, we'll see.
Buy or build-up a spec Miata... probably the most bang for your buck.

Yeah - size can be a problem, but I've seen pretty tall guys fit fine in them when fitted with racing seats. Being just 5'6'', I pretty much can drive anything :D

I wish I would have been able to keep mine... just not enough room for all my toys

Exclamation Rock n Roll McDonalds meet

OK folks here's some new info:

Tuesday 9/13 (9pm-11pm or later) at Rock n Roll McDonalds - 600 North Clark, Chicago

This McDonalds is the newly redone flagship of Mickey D's in the city (it's futuristic looking now, you kinda can't miss it). Racewar is heading this one up, so if you have any meet-specific questions, ask him?

Speaking of which, Racewar, I know they used to be really harsh on using the parking lot...are they still? Can we actually meet there?

I'll be there!
