Depending on the day I might swing by. A couple of years ago I tried to be very active but with me starting a company and some other major changes in life I cannot be depended on facilitating the meets.

I was at quite a few of those last year. Good draw of cars for a tuesday night for sure. Just off 355 makes it easy to get to as well.

Thats a haul but easy to get to. How late does it usually go and what time does it start?

It starts early. The "old times" get there at 4:40. Most people come in between 5:50-6. Starts to clear out around 9. A group of us usually are there late. Many times we jump on 355 and head to 55 or 80 where the roads are wide open and in the open areas.

The promoter does shows all around the area. He has a show almost every day of the week. I can't remember the name. I will try and find it and post his schedule.

You live close to Lukes in Elgin, correct? The people down here drive up to Lukes. Similar drive. I just hope work allows me to make it up to Lukes more this year. Only made a few last year. 60-70 hour work weeks leaving little time for social life during the week.

I think its BGV motorsports who does it? He has a show at Nicodinos in Bartlett on sundays that we hit up and I guess now they have turned it into an import show for the first part of the day

It was always hard to get people to show up because of the night. You had Augustino's at 59 and north ave, Cozy corners, and I think something down in Plainfield all going on that same night.

Hey everyone, I'm new to this site (regular on ls1tech)...how many people actually show up to the Portillos location? I live only a few minutes away and would be interested in swinging by.
