Hey Tom,

Was just looking a couple of days ago to see if there was a date set. Unfortunately I'll be down in Georgia visiting my son that weekend so won't be able to attend. Hate to miss it, always a great time. See you around, maybe at Road America!

Hi Mike,

Yes I will see you up at Road America again. The track has had a lot of improvements over the winter I understand. Best track in North America, sort of like a mini 4 mile Nurburgring.

By the way, I talked them into bringing the Lancia Stratos to the show.

Hey Tom, I'm finally going to be able to make it back and bring a model or two. Great to see the show still running.

Good to see you back. Yes this show has been held for 40 years by the Ferrari Club. I think it was best when held at the Como Inn in downtown Chicago. Always had amazing Ferrari's on display. This year we plan on having a Lancia Stratos along with the usual classic and new Ferrari's and Maserati's.

Very nice real cars on display this year. The blue Lancia Stratos was a crowd favorite along with the Maserati 5000 and Ferrari Zagato 550 Spyder(one of 3 made). Also a 288 GTO and 288 GTO EVO were on display along with many other Ferrari's and a Alfa GTA Jr.

Hope some of you can make it back next year. Bugatti will be the special theme next year along with the normal sportscar/racecar classes

We are working on getting a display of original car design renderings for next year. This will be a rare opportunity to see these drawings and paintings done by a big three engineer designer up close.
