    The rumor going around is it will be at Progress City In Decatur il, That is where they have the farm progress show every other year. If this is true there will be plenty of parking and two interstate exits to make it easily accesable.

    Hot-rodders hitting the road?

    Hunnert Car Pile-up apparently moving to Decatur for 2010

    Representatives of the Hunnert Car Pile-up are expected to announce Monday they are moving the event from the Grundy County Fairgrounds to Decatur.
    The Chrome Czars’ most-recent hot rod show, held at the fairgrounds on Oct. 10, 2009, drew so many people, traffic was backed up on Illinois 47 in both directions for most of the day. Available parking spaces at the fairgrounds were taken, with people parking along Illinois 47, at Saratoga School and in any other open spaces.
    Chad Hill, a member of The Chrome Czars reached Friday at Red Orchestra, a graphic design company in Chicago, said, “I can’t say anything until next week. Give me your number and I will call you next week.”
    However, a comment attributed to Hellfish in a thread about the future of the Hunnert Car Pile-up on the Web site includes, “Morris just cannot handle it, and apparently, don’t want to given their lack of support.”
    Hellfish is the same pseudonym used on the Web site for the individual who should be contacted about “Sponsors, Vendors, Bands and general questions.”
    The 2009 event, the eighth annual and the fifth at the fairgrounds, drew about 1,200 cars and an estimated 12,000 spectators. About 230 volunteers were reportedly working at the show.
    Event organizers, at the time, said attendance appeared to be much higher in 2009 than it had been in previous years.
    A posting from last October on the Hunnert Car Pile-up Web site, reflecting on the 2009 show, stated, “We got simply overrun by spectators. We ran out of parking quickly, all nine football fields worth of parking, filled to capacity. There were too many people and cars everywhere. The ambulance couldn’t get in or out. Traffic was backed up for miles. It was simply unsafe. Then people started parking on the highway, causing even more traffic delays.
    “Around 2 p.m., it seemed as though half the hot rods decided to leave, making a bad situation worse. This caused an even bigger backup.”
    Don Meyers of Seneca said traffic was much worse in 2009.
    “I take the back roads and wind around, but I had trouble getting there. The year before, I had to wait maybe 15 minutes,” he said Friday.
    Chief Deputy Kevin Callahan reported the two deputies paid for by the organizers requested assistance from regular traffic units because of the number of vehicles.
    The Chrome Czars’ Web posting goes on to address concerns raised during the weekend, straight out denying talk that Pile-up #10 in 2011 would be the last.
    To the question of whether the show would be held in Morris again, no direct answer is given. Instead, the posting says, “This year was hard on us. We were cursed at, spit on, had mud thrown at us, and even had people try to start fights with us. We heard a lot of hateful comments and dealt with more irate people than we’ve ever seen in the previous 7 years combined.
    “It has given us a lot to think about. It is, however, much easier to remember the jerks than the nice ones. For every complainer we heard from hundreds of people who begged us to keep the show going and that it’s worth suffering through the hardships. We have not had an opportunity to discuss the future yet and where the show will be located, but we would all like to see the show continue.”
    The show consists of hot rods, cars and motorcycles from 1964 and earlier in as close to original condition as possible.
    Car owners pay $20 to park at the show and spectators pay $5 to enter. Organizers donated $25,000 to nine charities after the 2008 show.
    The show started in Sycamore with fewer than 100 cars and 200 spectators, but because of its popularity, after three years, it needed more space and moved to the Grundy County Fairgrounds.
