Just wondering if any of my in state brothers are going to be heading to the Auto Show. As much as I hate Chicago's gun control laws, its a sweet ass city. Personally, I think I would be the greatest in the world if we took Daley out of the equation. So who's going?

I'm going to be there next weekend. Biggest auto show in the world .

I've been going every year since I was a little deej86. Always look forward to that time of year.

Illinigunner: Just curious what part of the state are you in?

Why the hell would you pay to look at cars you can see in the dealership!

Because some of them will never make it into production, and some not for several years.

Good luck finding a Ferrari dealership to see the new FXX.

Never heard of the FXX, but I like the Superamerica

I'm not interested in Ferrari, but I would like to go to the auto show anyway.

Tim,
don't drive there. Take Metra to McCormick Place instead.

I went twice in high school for my vocational Auto Service class.

It was cool, but I always found myself hanging out around the American truck displays (CHEVY, Ford, Dodge).

I must really be a Redneck if those were the only things I cared about

I remember grabbing every poster in sight, not because I liked them, but because they were free.

I guess me too.

Since I already have a new truck, and have no intention of buying another new one or trading this one in any time soon, the auto show means a lot less to me this year than ever before.

It's an easy drive if you do go. I've never had a problem finding parking or with traffic.

I guess I'm lucky that way.

Easy drive where I am, it's just a PITA to deal with traffic. You only pay $1 for parking at the Metra, albeit it's in Harvey, and 5 bux for the train. Instead of paying 20 bux for the parking at McCormick, and don't even get me started on how much it costs to eat there.

Park in the Ghetto. Don't leave anything in sight in the car. Put your game face on. Bring a lunch.

Sheesh.

I usually park at US Cellular field and take the free shuttle to McCormick place. They only do this on the weekends iirc.
