I hope people can spare an hour or two to be with friends during the holidays.

Hi Clicker et al,

December may be too busy for people - but John and I will try to be either in Schaumburg or Skokie. I love our get-togethers. So let's do it.

LOL... I stand corrected! Parking isn't a problem anywhere...

We always have the meets at 11:30 so we can find parking.The Schaumberg location is across the street from Woodfield and they have plenty of parking also.

Has anyone had to buff out scratches on a body panel? My smart got bruised by an inattentive driver, and the insurance company is being a real pain. They want me to "paint" the fender (uh, no, no paint, thank you). The scratches aren't deep, but I don't want them left unattended as it affects the value and the looks (they catch the dirt first) on my otherwise great car. Anyone had it done, know what it costs, or know who knows how to do it?

I am new to these gatherings, and hope to come (although I am casted on my right foot, and will have to talk a family member into driving me!). I will tell you that in a non-holiday shopping rush it can be hard to find parking at Old Orchard CPK in Skokie. I don't know what the December crush would be like, but I suspect it would be frustrating... I also don't know where the CPK is in Schaumburg, so maybe that will have similar challenges.

Karen and I will be there in December...whichever one you decide to chow down at.

Hi everyone!
I went to pick up my interior plastics for another mod and I met someone who REALLY wants to meet the group so I thought we would squeeze in another meet! Let's do Sunday,Dec. 13th at the CPK in Schaumberg or Skokie.
The person's name is Tom and he buys and restores smarts.His web site is you were on E-Bay awhile ago he is the one who was selling the shell and engine.
Let's try to make this one a big meet to say goodbye to 2009 (finally!)and welcome in 2010!

Great meet yesterday. Hard to believe this was last meet for the year. Was great seeing everyone and looking forward to next meet next year. Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and a wonderful Holiday season.
