Good news. How far away from Pontiac IL do you live? Aren't you in Iowa?

4 hours Been years, since I attended, but wow - some super fine cars, attend this small town event. The hotels often are booked out, just 4 total.

Hmmm...google says I'm about 5 hours away. Being in IL is a HUGE turnoff to me, but I hope many others have a good time there.

Coulda been Tulsa and you'd be just like Herman Kain. You act like"real" people don't exist. I assure you IL ain't no commie land. They grunble just as much as everyone else.

Uh, I said nothing about IL being "commie land". I just came here to ask if the wind storm caused you any damage....I only saw news of it today when a farmer commented about how bad it was in Iowa. ____________ As far as IL, southern IL is a very pretty place with very nice folks. I abhor their governments treatment of my US Constitutional rights. I went to school there, lived there at that time, and do business with several folks/companies from there. It's a SHAME the "democrats" that "run" Chitcago drag the folks of Southern IL down the same drain that they've created. Mrs O'Leary's cow had a good idea...

Derecho hit a wide swath, I worked 90 miles North Fridsy on U of I campus, except for swirls of dirt znd tree limbs on street parking, was not very obvious. Cell service bad, 45 towers affectd w/ mycarrier. Had tobrecert to land lines and a phone for the older parents we were setting up. It worked great. 112 mph at Iowa City. The,Cedar,Rapids znd East had the,worst, about 120 miles North of me. Paibful to see huge 10 foot bumper crop corn smashed flat to earth. Man farmers have taken it last 4 years. Tough on thrm. I must,sell 2019 corn soon, this is actually bumping up grain prices, as supply drops a wee bit.

You mention selling corn, do you farm?

I own small one, too small to operate, split the crop with another who puts in the farming work. We had a highway going to kill us off with eminent domain. Nedded a place to move as a contingency. Highway now getting buiit. They did take all my parking lot, but did not get their way in killing me, so far. I can see Russia from my doorstep and it is spelled D.O.T.

Since you mentioned commies, Russia, and farming I want to provide a link and ask you to read the second paragraph and provide your opinion about it. IMO it proves communism has been around in these states for several decades.

I will look at, but avoid the response. This is a car format. Only dialogue about the other stuff because of the current events like challenge to find anything car -release wise that we can still enjoy. Not a fan of many gov't policies, and I am way more conservative than you give me credit for, but who isn't when they have built businesses from the ground up and been successful. I really hate when others tell me how much it is going to cost me just to open my business doors and compete with corporate America even though they can never bring the genuine experience a dedicated small business owner can do. I do hope you consider the Pontiac event. The museum is phenomenal for a small museum. They amassed all the archives from Pontiac, so you can reference pretty much anything you want to dig into. That was a donation from POCI, directly. The cars and quality of exhibits are better than you will find in many 5 star museums like the Henry Ford, or Peterson. But I show my bias. Just go for a quality fun escape of a weekend around some pure Pontiac enthusiasts who relish the best of the best cars that came out of Detroit. When you visit this Pontiac museum, you get a car show, a cruise, and a small town experience you would wish your own state could put on. But you have the Corvette Museum, so you know all about that.

Man, on one hand I'd like to see the show, but on the other I have no interest. I would rather drive my car(s) than look at others, but none of mine are road worthy now. I'm still raising our kids, "remodeling" our house (which we paid off this spring!), and trying to maintain my mother's estate. Cars are off the back burner.
