Default "Supercar Saturdays" in Glenview

Last Sat (May 2) I attended the first "Supercar Saturday" meet in Glenview, IL. It is held at the site of the old Glenview Naval Air Station, where a redevelopment includes a very picturesque townsquare with surrounding shops and restaurants. The event is planned for the first Sat of every month from May through Oct (with any rain-outs rescheduled for the 2nd Sat).

It drew well over 50 cars, including Lambos, Ferraris, Maseratis, Porsches, Audi R8, BMWs, Bentley, Ford GT, Vipers, Vettes, and others --- including 2 GT-R R35's (my Gun Metallic and gashero's sweet Super Silver). It was good to meet you in person Wayne.

I was thinking that one of the next upcoming Supercar Saturdays (perhaps June 6 and/or July 4) would be a good opportunity to gather many of the Chicago area GT-R's. We could also collect the Naperville and nearby area folks in advance, for a joint cruise up to Glenview. I'll be happy to help coordinate it if you let me know who's interested.

Details and pre-registration are available at www.SupercarSaturdays.com. The event is 9 to 11 am, with arrival/parking between 8 and 8:45 am. They hold "premium" parking space (around the town square) for select pre-registered cars until 8:45. The remainder park along the main street centered on the square. But cars are parked in the order they arrive, so if we want a Godzilla "paddock" we need to arrive as a group.

The first event was nicely organized and executed, in a pleasant setting, with lots of fine cars and friendly owners.

BTW, on May 2, after the first event, a bunch of the Lambo and Ferrari folk and I had lunch there and then cruised down to the Autobahn Country Club racetrack in Joliet, where the second leg of the One Lap of America was being contested that afternoon. I got to meet and speak with the drivers of the 2 GT-R's entered in the race. Great guys with great cars. The Freedom GT-R had an off day (with the car going into "Limp Mode" at one point). But the Cannonball GT-R had a great day. It finished first overall (and set a track record) for the wet skidpad in Indy in the morning; then it finished 2nd overall (to a GT2) in the afternoon for the time trials at Autobahn. It finished the day in first overall. The races continue for a week, with the entrants having to drive their race cars overnight to each subsequent track event. You can get updates at CannonballGTR.com. I checked it this morning and the GT-R was sitting in 2nd overall behind the GT2.

Hey, all you GT-R owners in Chicagoland, lets gather at the SupercarSaturday in Glenview June 6.

If anyone wants to cruise up there together from the Naperville or Lisle area, please let me know. And don't forget to pre-register for preferred parking (at www.SupercarSaturdays.com).

Hope to see and meet you there.

Welcome to the board. I highly recommend nick at umbro tinting in schaumburg. He has done a couple of Gtr already and his price is very reasonable on top of excellent job and lifetime warranty.

Do you have the contact number for Umbro Tinting? I live in the city but am willing to drive out to Schamburg to get it done at a good place. By the way I just got my new plates so if you see a Pearl Ivory with the plate "GDZLA" give me a shout.

Nino (Nick) is a good friend of mine and does great work.

You can reach him at 847-912-1869. Tell him Ivan sent you.

His site is here http://www.umbrawindowtinting.com/ and here's a GT-R that I detailed a few weeks ago on the same day he put the tints and the guy he works with, Brian, put on the clear bra...

I'll be at SupercarSaturday once again in Glenview on July 4. Hope to see as many of you there as possible. Try to arrive early (say 8-8:15 am), for a better chance to get parked together, if desired. Weather's predicted to be great, so it should bring out LOTS of nice cars.

Hey bud, I plan on going if nothing big comes up. I also found the CD with the photos I promised you before so I'll either bring that or email them to you tomorrow sometime.

Yes, for sure, I'll be at SupercarSaturday Aug 1 with my Gun Metalic GT-R. I plan to arrive very shortly after 8 am. If you can get there during 8-8:15 it will increase our chance to get side-by-side parking, if desired. See you there.

Sounds like we should have at least 4. And more if gashero (Wayne) and OneBadGTR make it, as they have in the past. But I think Greg from GT Motoring is off racing this wkend though (his S2000, not his GT-R).

Yes, it was very nice to meet all the other fellow owners. And nice to have 5 there:
John (Cajun Godzilla) - Gun Metallic
Joe (jshap1) - White
Obie (???) - Black
Kenyata (???) - Super Silver
Joe (JoeCaMotto) - Red
Maybe next time we can have even more, e.g.
Wayne (gashero) - Super Silver
Greg (GT Motoring) - Black
??? (GTRdoc) - Titanium
and others?
Hope to see as many of you as possible in Sep.

Tom (tagrin),
The Supercar Saturday meets are 8-11 am on the first Sat of each month, May thru Oct (or one week later if a rain-out); so the next one is Sep 5. To pre-register for a reserved parking space, just go to www.SupercarSaturdays.com.
Hope to see you there!
