    I don't know why the text is so jumbled. It says Hugh Ruthven's "The Finish Line" is now open for the Christmas season once again in downtown Barrington. Also, I apologize for the lousy quality photos from my phone. Anyway, very cool stuff. If you're familiar with his display at the Model and Literature Expo every year, it's all that but about 5 times more stuff!

    Here is the rest of the Fuelfed 2018 schedule. They seem to be trying to make the September Winnetka Ferrari and October event more formal. Put that on your schedule as it is always a lot of fun, and bring out the vintage Ferrari's, Maserati's, Alfa Romeo's, OSCA's, Lancia's ect. !!!

    Changes for the 2018 Milwaukee Concours d'Elegance . Now all they need to do is get the quality of the cars back up to what it was between 2009-2012, although 2016 was very nice.

    Event is Sunday August 5th 2018 in downtown Milwaukee.

    Next Saturday is the first event for Fuelfed 2018. The swap meet is located at the Last Detail.

    If you guys are looking for something different and interesting for this summer how about this little thing. I do not know the owner and cannot give any info on it but it sure would attract attention at the Fuelfed events!! The SZ's are finally old enough to import without modification so several have been brought over.

    I was planning to attend the swap meet but some family obligations are getting in the way. If anyone is there and happens to notice any 7 1/2 x 15 cromodora star mags (center spline style used on the 365 series cars) could you send me a P.M. ? I’ll invoke a hall pass and haul buns up there. Thanks.

    No Cromodora star mags that I could see. Maybe better luck at the Ferrari show next month. The Last Detail is a big shop on the north shore. They mainly do work on German and English cars with some American. Nice Aston Martin and 300SL along with a few other luxury cars. Also stopped by Lake Forest Ferrari. Alot more late model Ferrari's on the floor in it's very big Ferrari showroom.

    I stopped by and picked up some Rosso Magazines and a Ferrari 456 model.

    I wanted to chat with someone with The Last Detail about doing some work on my 97 D90 but I wasn't sure who was who. I will probably give them a call sometime later next week.

    Setting up for the FCA Model and Literature meet at Continental Auto Sports from a few years ago . . .

    This always fun event is this Saturday, March 10th at Continental Auto Sports, 410 E. Ogden Ave. in Hinsdale. Vendor set up at 7:00am and open to the public at 9:00am. All that's required is you bring your enthusiasm (and some money to buy things!) and enjoy all the cool stuff as well as the amazing hospitality from the awesome staff at Continental. Be there!

    Official Rise and Drive calendar for 2018. I am trying to see if they will listen and allow photo taking inside. If not I will not go.
