    Wrong, my friend. I win this one. 3 miles. I PM'd Doc. I'll let Doc drop the the info on the car, but its way cool.

    But if Zenor wanted to collaborate on this one, have him PM me. If you and Tully wanted to meet up for this one, I'm game. Remember, Dog 'n' Suds is only a few mile away.

    When I lived in Chicago, it was called the Volo car barn....70's:rolleyes:
  9. I live west of I can't help You up in the Chi-Town area. Last time near there was Route 66 NHRA event earlier this year.

    Any other ILL Hambers.....would be great to make a friend from hear. This year
    I made it to the 10 th Annual Fred Gibb Reunion ...see
    to learn about the Father of the ZL1 69 Camaro legacy. Amazingly from a
    little farm town dealership with 1,400 population. Even the city police cars
    have the Fred Gibb Reunion painted on their sides permanently.
    When I was a teenager....We used race Our Super Stocker against them which was owned and driven by Our Roman Catholic Parrish Priest....a 440 Wedge

    I have been to many car guys websites.....this one hear is the MOTHERLOAD !

    Drop a line when You can.....too many hours at the practice needs some

    Thanks everyone. Appleseed has agreed to go look at the car for me. If anyone else wants to go with him all the better. I think you would enjoy seeing the car even if I don't buy it. I'll keep ya posted if I pick it up.

  17. In case you guys don't know, There's a Skips reunion car show and swap meet Sunday at The Lake Co. fairgrounds at rt45 and rt120. 8am-3pm. Most vendors and cars start packing it up about 1pm, though, the s+++heads. I'll be there selling 'til 3. Just to the south of the main entrance. Look for big straw hat and white beard. Norb

    HAHA, I know...I know. How am I going to maintain my reputation as a man child who refuses to grow up if you keep reminding me of the responsible thing to do. LOL

    The car in question wouldn't be a twin engine dragster by chance would it?
    They have some pretty interesting cars come up once in awhile if you can get by seeing all of the movie cars they have been collecting the past few years.-Drew

    Anyone interested in meeting up this weekend? I'm thinking Saturday or Sunday. As I told Doc, I'm no expert, so a few more eyes would be a good thing. Like I told Django, Dog "n" Suds is only 3 or 4 miles up the road. PM me guys and we'll see if we can get the ball rollin'.
