    Hey guys, I have a couple of questions about the upcoming 2008 auto show.

    1. Is there any possible way to see the cars as they are being unloaded, or is that roped off. If you can see them, what date and where.

    2. Do either Lambo or Ferrari have booths this year?

    3. Will Lambo Chicago come?

    4. I hear Dodge is unavailing a car this year at the Chicago show, I think the new Charger. When is that happening?

    I hope to see your Ferraris on the streets now that it is getting warmer!

    Thanks,
    Daniel C.

    Ferrari/Maserati will not be there, I don't think Lamborghini will be either. Dodge is launching the production Challenger.

    LOL :

    Are there any Test-Drives and If so can you die?

    Nobody's gonna die. All moving vehicles are driven by professional drivers. See the FAQ category, Chrysler Group test track, for full details.

    So is there a day that most of us can be there together? This worked out great a few years ago. Andreas, are you going this year?

    I wouldn't necessarily count on that. All 20 of the Reventons have been sold to individuals already and I don't believe anyone in the US has taken delivery yet, and Lambo won't use a customers for show. Also, Lambo was at NAIAS and had no Reventons there.

    I didn't plan on it with Ferrari not being there, but now that at least Lambo has a booth I could be persuaded. Meeting up with you there would be reason enough.

    Will know more which day(s) might be best for us soon. Carolyn and I try to attend together each year if possible. After the first weekend of the show probably for sure. Lincoln's birthday is on the 12th. Just double checked the Chicago school calendar. That is a school holiday. That will probably be reason enough not to go that day. Thinking now Monday, Wednesday or Thursday.

    Who else is planning to go this year, and may wish to meet up?
