NIce work Arthur on the numbers on the Bluesbra car! Ha! Digital and zoom is amazing! And actualy one and a half toll was paid by Country Bunker & 177Elwood, thanks guys for the help, if I had known for sure you were back there I would have said you too, but usually I couldnt see anything that far back, I just would say Get me and the next 3 cars that is like this one behind me, so thats Four total!
I remember last year The lady was counting And I said "Were in a hurry!" Ha! Or something to that effect.
I'd like to apologise for the bit of round about as well, we missed the 355 turn off cause, well Country was having fun! and I decided to go through DesPlaines because then I thought the 2 new guys with us can see the Mount Prospect Water Tower come into view and then pass the Police Station, I thought Arthur, CAthy and Lord Vadus would appreciate that, so sorry 177Elwood for the added gas burning to your Fourhundred forty cubic inch plant!
Sigmfsk Should have told the Cashier "Its not a Convention, were on our way to Chicago and it's payback time!" Ha! I suspect it would have looked like the movie all over w/ the troopers in pursuit of 4 monaco's this time!

Awesome pics arthur!! I like the ones of us leaving the toll booth!! Cant wait to do it again next year. Maybe we will have some more good luck on our side? lol
Nice vid john! Couldnt let the tranny leak stop me from having some fun! lol I didnt know my fun was gonna make us miss our exit though!! My bad!! haha
sorry about not making the location this morning!! I was gonna head out there after I talked to you. Hell I was even gonna go in the rain. Both arthur and I were pumped to do it... But chris told me he noticed a few drops of tranny fluid on his windshield from yesterdays trips ( he had been following me most of the trip, and his car got a nice tranny fluid bath from mine) lol So I didnt wanna push my luck!
I wish jake woulda came along.. I would of had a ton more pics!
I did manage to get a shot of the cars loading up for the ride home this morning, and a few others.
Man the poor car sure went threw hell on this trip. I had something fly off a big rig on the way home. Im not sure what it was.. Almost looked like a stick.. Anyhow there was a pretty good "thud". I get home to find my drivers side high beam light blown out! It also broke one of the tabs that holds the chrome ring around the light. Anybody got a spare?
Zac , any ring from a 4 headlight car will work . Think those parts places in town can get you one too . My car started running on 7 cyl in the lineup at customs , and was worse for the last 20 mins . Well at least " my lady of blessed accelleration " didnt fail me till I was home . Probably a vacume line leak or plug wire .... no biggie .
