My company is actually spelled with an E. Autowerks of Northbrook. Find me on Facebook or google for directions and a map. Spread the word. Everyone is welcome. Most likely we will hold a raffle for all in attendance and I will be running the grill for lunch.

If I'm around I'll swing by, Ron set me up with my AEV heat reduction hood and tinted my windows for me.

You guys gonna allow foreigners to this party? At this point, my being in the area is at the 50/50 range, but I wouldn't mind stopping by and visiting with Illinois Jeepers.

I need to be on the north side of Chicago to recover some oriental rugs and other family heirlooms and if the stars align and the gods permit, that weekend would be perfect.

Now I have to decide on which jeep to bring - the one that Autowerks has worked on 2003 Sport modified or my newest addition 2013 Sahara which I pick up this weekend.

Decisions, decisions...

And I've been gone for 18 years. Back when I lived in Brookfield, I could have pulled a half a dozen places to meet. Now, not so much.

Y'all can come to my place and meet. Convenient location, right on I-25 @ exit 319. Close to the Santa Fe National Forest. 5 MILES to the nearest trailhead. 13 MILES to the nearest abandoned mine. About 30 miles to the nearest ghost town.

Oak Brook is somewhat centrally located. Maybe hooters, cheeseburger in paradise, brickhouse, or fudruckers would be welcoming. If others are interested, I would be happy to inquire.

Thanks. It was expected but it's still sad.

On a happier note, I got my new Wrangler yesterday.

Sorry for the late reply. Unfortunately due to my sons insane baseball schedule I cannot hold the even here on April 6(he has a game at 2:00).

I can however switch it to the 20th if you are all OK with that date. Hopefully it will be warmer so we can park cars inside and out. Let me know if this works and we can have an admin change the date in the original post
