Ok you crazy Illinois people, I laid the idea out on the table so I need to konw who and how many of you/cars are going to show up if I orgnize this. Please post up and let me know so I can get ahold of some people to make sure it is ok for us to do this. I don't want to tell everyone to come just to get kicked out of where ever we meet up. anyway let me know

Hi... first time poster to this forum.... anyways.

Are you talking about setting one up for just the AF people, or if you're looking for one that we could meet at, then there's always the Twin-Cities Cruisers's cruises they have every month (last year was back at the K's Merchandise/Ruby Tuesdays's lot, was at Toys'R'Us for a few years). I want to say it's the 2nd Saturdays of the month (Apr-Oct).
ahh... http://www.twincitycruisers.com
That would be a pretty cool place to meet, that's already set up and going!

Just thought I'd toss it out there.

When do we plan on doing this so i can make arrangements with some friends of mine.
Is this going to be an import free cruise, or mixed(domestics and imports)??

Ok here is my thought, if there are going to be a substancial ammount of people, and is sounds like there will be a good ammount. Then I will setup something just for AF people/ AF peoples friends. The twin cities cruisers I don't think would be all to favorable to imports which I have nothing agenst, just I don't think it would be their cup of tea. As far as when I want to do this, preferably some time after may, I have the nationals and alot of other buick realeted stuff going on in may. I was thinking like mid june if that is cool with everyone.


Give me some feed back on this so I can work this out so everyone can attend. I have called some places in bloomington to allow us to meet at. They want to know the ammount of people there will be so I kinda need a half way accurate head/car count.

I will be out of town from June 18th to July 12th; but, if you can find a place where everyone can get together in there, please do so, even if I am not in attendance.

hey andy, i made most of the cruses last year and the mix of cars and trucks has gotten much more diverse. imports would be no problem also trucks and suv s with spinners are also represented. its pretty much turned into a "bring what ya got" kinda cruise. nice to see other peoples obsessions. ----- sometimes!!! ;-) keith

I stopped at the Advance Auto, across from where they have the crusies, the other night, and the Twin City's Cruisers had a flyer up... purdy sure it listed April 10th as their first cruise... had two themes "Meet the Cruisers" and I can't remember the 2nd one.

I'm gonna try to be there, but I don't know in what vehicle. Depends on if my Torino is out of the body shop before then, or if I get the SS's carburetor and windshield fixed by then.

just last night we had probably 40-50 imports out crusing in Bloomington/Normal... there were some mustangs and a couple trucks there as well.

Well, my Buick is far from being done. I still have the lower intake to do, and a lot of body work to get done. Probably going to take me all summer. So if no one has a problem with it i would like to take my dad's 79' Z28... The name Z28Josh doesn't come from me claiming to own one, just the fact that i love these cars, to clear that up. I'm one of the two people he lets drive it because i've helped him do some of the engine work and he knows that(aside from my recent crash) i'm a good driver. I just dont want anyone to the think i'm a poser for driving that car instead of my Buick.

Us Central Illinois people aren't going to feel out of place are we, will we be welcomed by these people? I think this would be cool if i could get some local people here to meet up with you guys.

josh, all kinds of people with all kinds of rides go to this thing. some cant get over the fact that you dont drive a chevy v8. to each his own. (well i guess you may drive a chevy v8) these cruises are ok because you can see something you like and then talk to the owners. Car shows on the other hand are way too cutthroat for me. I just like to sit back and shoot the shit with people interested in talking about his ride or my ride. If i'm there, track down the 86 Grand National with "FREAK86" plates.
