I just wanted to say HI to everyone in the Chicago area. I just moved here and I've seen a lot of Fits around town. I know some of you must be lurking on here!

Thumbs up Welcome

There are a number of Chicago fits on the site and they have been pretty active. Glad to have you in the region! We've had several Indianapolis area fits head up for Chicago events.

I knew it! I have only been in Glenview, IL for 2 weeks and I already have seen way more Fits than in Orlando, FL. I'd like to be at the next Fit meet or car get together. Anyway, here are a few pics I snapped before driving from FL to IL. You can see how heavy the rear is! Suprisingly I did not experience any rubbing at all. It must be the +45 offset FTW. lol

I am not suprised you havent heard of them. The town is so big, it is hard to get all the news.

Hey ASquared150,

I read in one of the other posts you were looking to buy some black konig heliums? Hit me up with a PM if you are still looking for some since I just found someone selling the heliums with the red stripe for a good price shipped.

dude lake geneva! my family used to drive up there every summer (we'd take two cars, my moms ford taurus and my dads awesome '85 Saab 900 Turbo that he had originally bought for rallying) and go to Lake Lawn Lodge. Sadly that tradition ended when my brother went to college - never quite figured out why though Lake Lawn Lodge was awesome.

EDIT:
i forgot it's called Lake Lawn Resort now, whatever.
