Default Corvette Owners From Illinois Chime In!!!

Thought I might revive an oldie for a walk down memory lane and give a chance for newer owners to say hello!

http://forums.corvetteforum.com/grea...-chime-in.html

In the next few weeks I will be rebuilding the Illinois events sticky for 2014. If anyone has information on upcoming events (yes I know about MCACN) or cares to do some volunteering please let me know.

Here is to a safe and pleasurable season!

Elmhurst here (when I'm not traveling for work, which I have to do far too often)!

I've owned my Vette since Dec '11. Moved to Wheaton June '12 and over to Elmhurst June '13.

A little more info for the hell of it. I'm a 26 year old Mechanical Engineer who currently works as a Steam Turbine Field Engineer. I'm in Kenosha, WI doing a major inspection on a 600MW turbine right now.

Default Speed

1/2miles a great start but the michigan mile is close enough for a shot at real speed with enough room to stop. I am doing both,and finally can leave the radar detector at home.

La Grange Park...looks like first one after skimming through all 10 pages of the old thread.

Crappy pic I took this past weekend hoping someone could use it to photoshop some wheels on it for me.
