Very light turnout at the Back Lot Bash today. I didn't make it yesterday, nor did I make it to MP due to a nasty head cold I seem to have caught. Hope to be back in full action for next weekend.

Tried to hit the last Park Ridge show tonight, the wife had made plans to meet one of her friends from work and her husband there, but they wouldn't let me pull into the lot. I guess they were out of spots? So we went for a cruise instead.

Rosemont had a few of the regulars after 9pm when Park Ridge ended. I'll be at MP tomorrow but not with the car as I won't make it early enough to get decent parking.

We haven't been to many shows the last couple weekends unfortunately. Did hit RM last night....full lot and perfect weather. Weird that they wouldn't let you pull into the lot in Park Ridge. Anyway, was just at sub express for lunch and noticed the MP show goes into October which is pretty rare. I'm sure we'll be up there the next few weekends till they all shut down for the year.

I won't be going back to Park Ridge again. Pretty ridiculous that they wouldn't even let me cruise through, it's not a judged event with registration hours so this makes no sense. When MP is full they never shut down the lot, in fact I've sometimes gotten a spot just by cruising through right at the moment that someone is pulling out. Oh well.

MP was huge tonight as usual, and yes it goes until October 1st. I did see one 4th gen black WS6 TA, 2001 or '02. I just saw it cruise past while I was talking to someone, so I didn't really get a chance to look it over. Sounded stock, but it did seem to have a tick from perhaps a bent pushrod.

The last Skokie/Old Orchard event is on Monday. I plan to be there as well, not sure what time though.

Saw a Pewter WS6 TA at the Skokie show tonight, thought it might be Taprxxt for a moment but then remembered that his has chrome ZR1s. This one had stock '01-'02 Speedlines. There were some other 4th gens, but I didn't make it through the entire show, ended up talking for quite a while with a guy I hadn't seen in years. After that, most of the show had cleared out.

First time I've been back on here in a while ... winter sucks. This past week of 60-70 degree weather was nice but I didn't take the car out. Can't wait to get back out to the shows again ... it has been too long.

The weather has been fantastic! Mine are still in storage too, it just seemed too early in the year to call an official end to winter and get either prepped for service.

Looking forward to the on-season though.

Ryan,

Can you explain "prepped for service?" Why do I have the feeling thats basically wipe down with micro fiber and put car in reverse to drive out of garage.

No wiping is necessary, they've been covered for the last four months.

I spontaneously hit some shows here and there, probably would be in my 2010 Camaro with 15's on the back:



Though my chopped '51 Merc is getting a carbed 5.3 LS, and if it runs decent I'll be driving it a lot this year:

Great to see you still have this one John. Didn't know it was still part of your lineup.

Thanks I'll be out with a 99 white formula black ZO6 rims and a cat back. Just getting back into the Fbody scene.... It's been a long time.

SPRAYED 01 and myself were at the first Skokie/Old Orchard event last Monday. That's the only show I've been to so far this year, I missed Mt. Prospect last week due to wrapping up a project on the '71. The first Park Ridge event was last night, I'm sure it was busy there too.

Nice. I'll be there most weekends with a 2000 Pewter WS6 ... friend also has a black nhra formula that will most likely be there most Fridays. Next week is the RM block party that same day so part of Kirchoff will be blocked but the show will still be going on (assuming weather holds up).

I still need to make it out there on a Monday...this year will be the year! I was at MP last week...it was busy with a lot of nice cars but I just don't like that lot. Too narrow and fills up fast because of how small it is.

I was at Mt. Prospect tonight, from about 6:30 until the rain hit at 8:15 - glad I didn't bring the car. I didn't see either of you guys though. I did see a nice 30th anniversary Z28, and also Corvette Bob's new-to-him '94 Z28 in Purple Pearl Metallic (really nice car, only 29k miles) as he was leaving. Mostly I was at the far end of the show, close to the exit with my usual group. Sorry if I missed you guys, but I didn't check back here prior to heading out so I didn't know to look for you.

We were there for about an hour and a half, down near the end of the lot, my formula and his TA, didnt bother backing in just pulled in forward. We took off in a hurry when the rain started, good thing i live less than a mile away so got home before the streets got wet lol. I always fail to get pics of our cars in the lot but this is right before we got there..
