      1979 & 83 (?) Chicago Auto Show. I think someone found them on the Chicago Auto Show site in some sort of archives.

      I might be getting a aircooled bus. I'll keep you guys updated. I'm pretty excited about it (no details, just a guy who passed away had a collection of 5-6 of them and wants them to go to a good home).

      Hopefully one of them is in good enough shape to justify taking home.

      I'll get more details once I go look at them.

      The father-in-law is doing legal work for the women, so he wants to take one to make it a "shop truck" (he owns howlawyer.com). He mentioned how I was a VW freak and in turn she was okay with me taking one as well. A little price of "on the house".

      I don't know much about the lady, but I know she doesn't want to sell them, and just get them to a good home. Once I get some details on what she has, I will likely be trying to find good homes for them.

      I have NO IDEA of what condition any of them are in. For all I know they are sitting outside in a backyard and are all rust buckets. Hopefully I'll get to check them out in the next couple weekends.


      I really hope one is a panel. I want a panel so bad.

      I might be walking into a yard full of rust too. Who knows.

      My father in law doesn't even need a runner, he can just park it in front of his office with a paint job, or vinyl wrap.

      I want something I can drive.

      Thanks Dan.

      Gotta get the garage cleaned out. Already got my GTI and after Sunday will have both my motorcycles there too.

      Anyone want a vintage early 60's wall oven?

      Can someone in Aurora help me out? I'm in Minneapolis and am interested in buying a car at a dealer there (Valley Honda).

      Just need someone to give the car a quick once over and look for any interior wear/tear, paintwork or panels replaced, etc....

      PM me if you can help! I'll pay someone for their time.

      Thanks!

      I'll host a BBQ or something at my house if you guys are willing to drive out (kinda far, I know). Otherwise as long as I'm not busy, I'll make it out to wherever a quality GTG can be had.

      Hey guys,
      This might be inappropriate.... but I work at a Engine & Chassis company in Woodstock, IL; we're having an Open House event tomorrow from 11am-3pm and you're invited.

      We build chassis for anything. Our off-the-shelf stuff is for classic muscle cars, but we can adapt our G-Machine Chassis to fit any car. Yes, we can put a full frame on your unibody car (without adding noticeable weight). You can body-drop your car as low as you want and still have perfect geometry that's proven on the race-track.

      Anyway.. here's the info and event link:

      Schwartz Performance Open House
      11am–3pm
      1115 Rail Dr
      Woodstock, IL 60098

      FB page: www.fb.com/schwartzperformance
      FB event: www.facebook.com/events/196159973844403/

      Google maps:
      http://goo.gl/maps/O48U

      Some of our shop cars:
      1981 Trans Am w/ 1200hp twin-turbo 6.9L LS9 and our G-Machine Chassis


      1969 Mustang w/ 624hp Supercharged 5.0L Coyote engine and our G-Machine Chassis


      1965 Tempest w/ 550hp Naturally-aspirated LSX and G-Machine Chassis


      1972 Gremlin!!! With body-dropped on a G-Machine Chassis


      Sorry for the shameless self-promotion...
