i used to follow the previous site quite closely. But kinda lost track after losing access to “my” pre-Bluesmobile after my retirement almost 13 years ago. Found this site kinda by accident today. Maybe my middle initials will remind some of who I am.
We started here after Blues Central went down, I loved that website and forums but it just went down one time and stayed down too long. I was getting e-mails asking what's going on but I had no answers so a few of us decided the best thing to do while we waited was to start up with a free forum website (proboards) and here we still are since 2011.
There's been lots of great Blumo builds since then, those are the folks truly keeping the legend alive. Some great builds right there in Chicago and one of our members is trying to get a gathering going again this year revolving around the Mount Prospect cruise nights. His name is Brian and you can see his info in this thread here ...

I’ll have to try and make the gathering in MP if it happens. Yes, that was Greg and I heading home on I-55 after a show I think near Joliet. We had the lights on. I think we were probably doing about 70 at the time. Dave Weaver took the picture. Greg’s car was a police package with a 440, the MP car is a civilian Monaco with a 360 but we put on a Edelbrock four barrel and manifold, hotter cam and 440 mufflers and tailpipes on it. I have construction pictures somewhere that maybe I can scan and upload.
