    I wasn't able to make it. We have some family in town and telling them 'I am going to a car show' when the weather looked like it did, they would think I was lying through my teeth! I was able to take my car our for a little drive during a break in the weather.

    I have nothing against red, but Chicago has a fair amount of non-red cars that I was pretty impressed to see. F50 in Black and Silver, LaFerrari in Rosso Barchetta, an MC12 (I know it isn't supposed to be red anyway) in Black, the Enzo pictured above.

    And yes - I need to get that fog light bulb replaced!

    Moderate turn out at rise and drive this morning

    A nice red 458 and a bicolor California

    Parking was screwed up as the minivans from the Ninja studio next door piled into the lot ahead of the event

    Not sure who runs it. They meet at the Panera in Vernon Hills. They have a Face Book page.

    I will try to go. I sort of went last time, but didn't arrive until 10:00, and there was no one there. It had been raining earlier, so I don't know if anyone actually had been there earlier. It's supposed to just be chilly, but no rain Sunday.

    Kinda thinking of going to the Vernon hills C&C. Mustang interior just arrived. Not sure I can do the seats in one day, but if not I’ll bring the 365.

    Trying to get my son to drive the mustang and I’ll bring the 365. I haven’t done seats in about 20 years. Watching some install videos from TMI now.

    Image Unavailable, Please Login my car had comfortweave just like the Shelbys, but Comfortweave is $400 per yard so TMI does a herringbone patern instead to mimic the deluxe interior. Vinyl on the edges fabric in the center like the originals

    Of course. I always design my home interior based on my car interior ;) Wondering where to use the lambs wool covers from the 365. As for the black leather...I can dream
