Looks like Thursday the 14th will be my day at Bloomington Gold. Any of you guys going to the show that day? It will be my first time there and I am really looking forward to it. Anybody in the Milwaukee, Racine, Kenosha WI area driving down that morning? Maybe we can hook up for a cruise down there.

If you can go friday or saturday, do it. Thursday is kind of a bare-bones operation in comparison. Many of the vendors don't even show up until friday. We will be rolling into town late thursday afternoon, but not going to the show until friday. For your first time going, I highly recommend finding a way to go friday and/or saturday. Don't take thursday as an accurate representation of the whole show. Just my 2 cents. Either way, have a great time! :thumbsup:

I had planned on going Saturday, but my son surprised me with US Grand Prix tickets for father's day weekend. We are going to Indy for qualification Saturday and the Race on Sunday. Friday is Relay for Life Cancer walk (of which I am a big supporter and participant for our Legal Eagles team). So, by default, it is Thursday. Sorry to hear about the vendors, I am really looking forward to seeing all the stuff. I am about 75 miles from St. Charles...maybe I can squeeze a few hours in on Friday, but it will be tough. Thanks for the info!!! Dale

sounds like you've got a busy weekend! cool gift from your son. I don't mean to make it sound like there won't be anything to see or do on Thursday. that's not the case.....just in comparison to Friday and Saturday, it's not as big and not as active...there's much more to get into fri. & sat.

DITTO Ghostchild regarding Thursday and good luck with the Relay for Life. My daughter is employed by the American Cancer Society so I'm very familiar with the Relay. They do a 12-hour overnight Relay down here but it is on Bloomington weekend so unfortunately (or maybe fortunately!!), I'll be in Illinois....

I guess I'll be there all 4 days. Come see me at the Adam's tent and check out the DC C6 and the DC Z basking in filth until Adam works on them! :laughing:

It looks like I will be there only Friday. But if that changes, I will let you know. It can't get here soon enough! Dale

Look me up! I'll be there every day, so I'll be on the lookout for you on Friday. Check the Adams tent - I'll be there on and off.

I was talking to this scruffy looking youngster :laughing: , and he didn't know what to do with his pretty little blue car, so he gave me the key fob ..

Come by the Adam's tent during the show and see how well it cleans up after driving through NW Illinois bug colonies!

I'm a busy TV star man!

LOL... I got a hair cut yesterday, 10 minutes after Steve left my house in a cloud of C6 tire smoke!

He went sideways for about 400 feet before straightening it out. :laughing:
Well, I can explain ...

My poor, underpowered C4 takes so much effort to get going, that when I hopped into the LS2 powered C6, and got into that grabby clutch (and very sensitive throttle), I just couldn't help but make smoke!

I also discovered how to make it stall today ...

My caravan buddy had to make a quick stop to reorganize his interior after a particularly harrowing curve, so I turned around to see what was up. He was safely on the shoulder, while I wound up in a gravel covered section of the road. As I was attempting to feather my way back onto solid road, I gave it what I considered a judicious amount of throttle, which the traction control system then interpreted as "you've bagged your limit, boy!", and gave me a red flag ... when the car lurched, I let off the throtle, and the little red light on the push to start button lit up ... a quick press of the button solved that little problem, and I successfully negotiated my way through the gravel by pulling off in SECOND gear.

That isn't quite the way I remember it. My recollection is a wizened old man standing next to his nifty looking '72 saying something to the effect of how much he loves to be heat soaked in his un air conditioned car.

I remember a mumbled phrase about "if you ain't hot, sweaty, uncomfortable, and about to die of heat stroke, you're not living the Corvette dream, Sonny!"

And after that magnificent gift I bestowed upon you, too!

Here's a pic of the DC Crew that showed up on Thursday ...



and here's a shot of a nice looking C2 ...
