Sorry about PM'ing you guys(Im pm'd all the Illinoians i could) but no one was really looking here so I had to get some attention somehow!

If you guys are on other forums or anything make a post about this (have them roll over to FF if they have any questions)

Later, Shawn

Thanks for the heads up, Shawn. I just might be able to make it. I'm brand new to the Focus scene and it'll be nice to meet you guys.

Later,

Mike

Good, Glad some people are gonna be able to come!

Avenger- I dunno im taking out my spare tire and stuff :D

Is everyone down with Hooters in orland though? I was just thinking its hell driving there, and parking might be kinda cramped if we get alot of people (we might have to park a little bit away if we want to stick together assuming we have more then like 10guys, since i dont think you can reserve parking spots, lol)

I'm down...As long as I'm not apartment hunting in Dearborn that weekend...but I can make sure to do that another weekend...I haven't done anything performance wise to my car but I think it'll be fun to drive it on 66 anyways...I'll see if my buddy will come, he might sick out surrounded by foci with his '72 Buick GSX (455 ci V8 500+ ft-lbs)...but it would be fun to watch that beast tearing down the track...

Orland Park is kind of a pain to drive through...maybe we should throw up some suggestions...I'll try and think of a couple...

its cool....huh...maybye we could meet somewhere close to northwest indiana so its like a 5 min drive for me ;) j/k I don't think either me or derek mind a drive...there is a hooters in scherrillville or merrillville by the street we gotta take goin down there anyways, but its kinda small....theres also like a hell of a lot of restraunts over there and theres an exit from 1/65 over there as well so if some people wanted to take the expressway... well if any more suggestions lemme know

between orland park, indiana, and bradley/bourbonnais...I gotta say orland is the best option...Indiana would have most of us driving away from route 66, so that might not be the best option...same with BB...even though I am coming from south of BB, I think most people would end up driving past 66 to get down there, so then they'd be driving back up to get there...Just a thought...

Ya you got a point, like avenger did, I just said bradley cause its a 5min drive :D But if we eat at orland that wont be much of a drive to 66 isnt it like 10min from orland to 66?

-Shawn

Edit: I figure in another 2-3 weeks we will figure out where to eat.. So it wont seem like the G2G is so far away(time wise), lol

Its not import day or anything but ive been there before and theres a VERY well rounded group of cars. Ya you dont officially race somone its just for testing out your car, But if like 2 of us got together at the tree we would race.
