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.

Sweet should be fun!! look forward to meeting you! -Matt

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.

mpoberg 03-24-2013 10:12 AM

Heck ya.. jeep blood is jeep blood.

cahill4225 03-24-2013 10:39 AM

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...

mpoberg 03-24-2013 12:56 PM

The new one. You can get mod ideas! I will be sporting a 12' jku Sahara. ;)

Man, northbrook is a drive from Plainfield but I got it penciled in on my calendar. Sounds like a good time

Wow. Yeah I'd say I'm a bit closer.

mpoberg 03-24-2013 06:31 PM

If nothing else we can meet and talk jeep! ;) we can plan a spring run too! :)

speedguy 03-26-2013 09:00 AM

I'm in. Looking to plan some trips with others.

mpoberg 03-28-2013 03:36 PM

Looks like we need to cancel the event for now. We will try to come up with a better date. Sorry All! :(..

stryke-force 03-28-2013 05:48 PM

Keep us posted!

Why?

mpoberg 03-28-2013 06:04 PM

We lost our meeting place. :( unless we want to find a new spot. I just moved here. I have no idea where to go? -Matt

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.

mpoberg 03-28-2013 07:33 PM

Anyone?

PecosRiver 03-28-2013 08:20 PM

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.

mpoberg 03-29-2013 09:04 PM

Looks like it might be a bit of a drive from chicagoland..lol

PecosRiver 03-30-2013 04:48 AM

Just a bit longer than normal.

speedguy 03-31-2013 01:10 PM

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.

mpoberg 03-31-2013 02:09 PM

Count me in

PecosRiver 03-31-2013 05:18 PM

NOW I can't make it. Funeral requires me changing my travel plans. Dead uncle.

mpoberg 03-31-2013 05:20 PM

Im sorry to hear that. Happy easter.

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

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

speedguy 03-31-2013 10:17 PM

Congrats!

Autowerks racing 04-01-2013 08:34 AM

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

stryke-force 04-01-2013 05:55 PM

Will there be beer?
