    hey you forgot me Ferrari Rick. I gave my money to ANdres at the Chi Auto Show.

    I also need details, location, time, direction, are we doing food afterwards or before? I know a great BBQ place in Arlington Heights - famous Dave's. When will we have time to discuss FCA event in Indy.

    CIR has a great bar and restaurant upstairs, so we'll just eat there (for those who want to). Good opportunity to chat.

    Hey,Rick!....(You never got back to me about Vettefest!...) They have Good food right there at the Karting Place. More than just "Snack Stuff" or "Bar Food". A Really great selection. Famous Dave's is alright. I have 2 close to my house. 1 at Yorktown Shopping center. But,without HighJacking this thread. I can say that "Charlie Robinsons" in Oak Park is better....:)

    See you guys Saturday. Iffy as to whether or not I drive my Ferrari there...have to see what the Weather will be like when I wake up on Sat. A.M. And,the Trophies have turned out really nice....Check out the www.focmidwest.com site ,then click on "Karting Event" from last Year,and you can see what is in store for this Saturday....:)

    Not me, I've been unemployed for something like 25 yrs. now.

    Just got off the phone with Billiam. Sez his friend is coming from Indy.

    I told him he better make sure, cuz a local would probably like the spot!

    See ya all Sat., or should I say, I'll 'half' see all of ya Sat.?

    Funny part is, I'm one of the photogs; this should be interesting......:)

    David, I got your phone message and yes, I'm planning on being there.

    I will be with you guys too, heehhe Getting ripped that is.... hee hee... Wish i could be in the duking, but still don't think my Cardiologist would like that right now. He threatend to put me back in the hospital if i went snowmobiling a week after surgery. I told him it would have been no big deal, i would have just popped about 10 Vicoden before hand and i would feel NO pain.... HAH!

    Had the Ferrari out today, hope it's nice on saturday, i will drive it then too....

    Yes Skippitie,
    Some of us have to work....

    A short 15 hour day, I don't think that I can handle any more of the 21 hour days right now. 10 hour days feel like I had the day off! :D

    The weather forecast is now calling for rain on Saturday... which is a lot better than the snow originally predicted.

    If it rains, I'll still drive my Elise (provided most of the salt is washed away by the rain tomorrow...). I might even have my new CF driver's seat, SS brake lines, and 5 point harnesses installed by then (they're getting delivered today :)).

    Still sitting on the fence on whether to drive or not. Got a chance last weekend to install the CF license plate and door sills. Looking sharp.

    I'm going to watch the weather closely over the next couple days to make my decision...

    I should actually clarify that when I say "if it rains", I mean "if it drizzles slightly". Standing water doesn't mix well with my tires ;)
    Nice!

    Hopefully the weather will hold up so that both of us can drive.

    I will not be in the 365, she won't be ready for a while, as her trans is in the back of my mini-van at the moment.

    I was considering putting the V12, trans and diff into the mini-van, it would make it a one-off, Midship F-powered grocerygetter....... whadaya tink??? :D
