    Yes and street legal. Makes you wonder why the larger car manufactures can't produce anything under 2000 lbs. Weather looks not as good today. I would not be surprised to see a few peeks of sunshine this afternoon.

    Rather slow year at the Milwaukee Concours. Now we know why they did not publish the displayed car list!!! Still a few good ones including a Bugatti, several vintage Indy and a very nice Alfa Romeo long wheel base 2.3, maybe the most expensive car on the lawn.

    I thought the show was pretty good - however this is what I would rate as my first true concours.

    I brought some non-car people and they loved it!

    Is the Ronald McDonald car show happening this year? I went to the website and didn't see it listed as an event.

    Glad you had fun. It was down a little this year with only 1 vintage Ferrari. I hope Geneva is good again this year. That event is also free and set in a lovely little town.

    For October 28th nothing, but Fuelfed has the Winnetka event on Sunday October 29th from 9AM-11AM. That event is very nice and every month with some rare cars always showing up.

    Is the 288 GTO EVO a Chicago car? I wasn't planning on going to the races today but seeing that there might be worth the drive!!

    Minnesota Collector but taken care off by Continental so it's often around. I have seen it 4 times since it landed in the Midwest.

    Geneva Concours is always a great event and the weather so far looks great. The Fuelfed events have always been good but I assume most would head over to Geneva.
