    Dear Motorists:

    Lamborghini Chicago – Fox Valley Motorcars, and The Finish Line, have organized a Fall Color Tour on October 29 and 30. This weekend should fall in the midst of Wisconsin’s spectacular fall colors. The twisty roads are there for the exploring and we will take you to a number of places we’ve scouted out.

    We’ll begin with coffee and pastries at Ambrosia in Barrington at 9AM. From there, we’ll drive the route to end up for the night in Spring Green, WI at the HOUSE ON THE ROCK RESORT. There, we will spend the evening dining and reflecting on the great roads and colors we’ve experienced. You won’t see these sights driving up and down the interstate!

    The entry fee is $495 per car (two people). This will cover all meals through Sunday’s brunch, resort suites, and a special gift. Entrants will only be responsible for any alcohol. Applications will be accepted in the order received until we reach 25 cars.

    We hope you will be able to join us October 29 and 30 for the Fall Color Tour. We need a check for the entire amount of $495, along with the signed application, no later than September 29, payable to “Fox Valley Motorcars”. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me anytime.


    Sincerely,
    Michael Wogronic

    I was right up there yesterday with Chuck and the Alfa Romeo Club,an '02 Maserati Spyder,and my 308. We ate at the Frank Lloyd Wright-Taliesen Restaraunt in the Greeting center. It is perched along the Wisconsin River,and about 1 1/2 Miles from the House on the Rock. Very,very Beautiful area. And,indeed....Many,many Twisty Roads up there....:) Have Fun! Wish I could have gone along,but have Family Commitments that Weekend.

    Yeah,Mike....Looking into my Crystal Ball....Me thinks that you may be getting visited by some of the Chicago White Sox for some Cars in the Next few days....:)

    I was watching the return of the White Sox on TV this afternoon. And saw one of them leaving in a Silver Maserati Quattroporte.

    AND....Dennis McKinnon,of the '85 Superbowl Champion Chicago Bears was in line in front of me at my local Dominicks Grocery Store today. I said "Hi and that "the Bears could really use him back". He said that "Oh,No! All they need is alittle Prayer".... And he left with his Groceries in a Black SUV. Man,that guy is Still in Fantastic Shape!

    I want more pics of that burgundy Lotus peeking out from behind the Ferrari.....

    A Lotus Esprit is the ONLY car that has ever made me giddy to where I was almost short of breath looking at it. Happened last year up at Road America after staring at Ferraris all day long. I saw the Lotus and was in love. Literally stared at it from about 10 different angles and for about 25 minutes. I have never done that with ANY other car......

    Well, maybe my own Ferrari in my garage.....

    But if I had a Lotus Esprit in my garage??? :-O

    I drove my Nissan 350Z. My Lamborghinis alternator was fried a week before the trip so I had to take the Z. It did surprisingly well, Michael FVM can atest to that!! ;)


    p.s. Thanks for the warm welcome and invite Mike.

    Since nobody commented so far, could somebody please enlighten me, what kind of Ferrari that is?

    I think I have seen that car at FCA's Monroe and Oakstreet event and is a one of a kind if I remember correctly, but I'd like to hear it from the experts.

    At any rate it is a rare sight and quite frankly had I known that car was in the group, well I might have joined. If for no other reason that just to shoot tons of pictures (no offense to the Lambos, they do look nice in that mild fall sun). How did the Ferrari hold up with the Lambos? After all we're talking here a 40 year difference in car technology.

    He led the group. That car was insane!! He let up a couple times so that everyone could catch up. I believe the car is a 1957 Ferrari 250. Mike would know for sure seeing that he registered everyone. I was very impressed with the performance, especially for a 1957!!
