Geneva Concours

Those of you in Illinois / Wisconsin,

Anyone interesting in attending the "Geneva Concours" this Sunday ?

It looks like there will be a PCA event and a classic car event :

Nick, I took 1st Place in the Geneva Concours last year for the Chicago PCA in "C" Class.

It's a great show. Lots of very nice Ferraris.

I'm not going to enter, I just want to go check out the cars.

C'mon, guys, the rain is finally supposed to stop Sunday !

Let's take a ride up to Lake Geneva and check out some cars :

Nick,

I do believe the event is in Geneva, IL (south on 59, west on Roosevelt) and not Lake Geneva, WI so the drive will be relatively short? I have my parents in town (they are going to the Bears game Saturday night) and don't think I will be able to break away on Sunday. I think we are headed up your way tomorrow night so we can discuss.

I used to live in Geneva, IL and went to this show several times. Great little suburb, and a real good event to see. Probably where I decided I HAD to have a P-Car!

Oops, my bad ! For some reason I thought this was in Lake Geneva, WI not Geneva, IL

Regardless, I'll be there Sunday if anyone is interested...

Nick, I may go now. The recent storms (and power outages) have forced us to cancell our mini-vacation today with the Boxster to Brown County Indiana. I'll call your cell Sunday if we go.

Nick, awesome! Great job. Beautiful day today. I went driving instead (340 miles) of Geneva. My car had been sitting for 2-weeks. We finally got power today. We had been down since Thursday's storms.

What is that last black car?

Sweet! Sign me up for the black car that looks similar to an Enzo.

Sorry you guys couldn't make it, it was a nice day...

Bill, glad to hear you finally got power and got a chance to take the Box out for a ride. I think the last car is a old Ferrari, but I'm not sure

I did a nice 3 hour ride on Saturday, took 14 all the way to 43 then down to 90 and back home

Don't forget about the weekend of the 29th :

Great Roads in Illinois Tour
