    Wounded Warrior Benefit Car Show - May 22 - Gurnee, IL

    Hello fellow No. IL and So. WI FFR owners. Car show for a good cause coming up in a couple weeks.

    I plan to attend as long as the weather cooperates. One of my friends with a FFR 33 hot rod is going. Anyone else interested?

    I am game, as long as my title comes in before then, that would probably be my 1st long ride, rather than a 5-10 mile put around the midway area.

    Hope it works out. Weather next Saturday, at this point, looks like 82 and 30% chance of rain. I'm sure it will change 20 times between now and then!

    Looking forward to meeting you and seeing your build.

    Awesome,

    I think we can if we arrange an arrival time and maybe meet up quick somewhere close and then all follow each other in.

    We can meet in the parking lot of Steven's Restaurant on the NE corner of Washington and Milwaukee if that works... I'd say just meet at my house but my neighbors already a little pissed at me . There is a new coffee shop there (riverside cafe) so we can get some java before the event.

    I have another cobra coming to meet us on Saturday. His handle on the forum is
    Thinkcobra he’s just over the border in Wisconsin. He has a 20th anniversary he built. So as of now I think we have 3 cobras a 33 and my truck going. Should be cool to have 5 factory fives at this show all parked together.
    Anyone else want to join us more the merrier. Rob

    Cool! I sent Jay a message yesterday and tipped him off to the event. He was going to check his calendar to see if he could make it---good to hear that he can join you guys!

    It was a great time to meet and greet, also see some builds. Too bad I had a tire issue which I figured out, just waiting on FFR to verify the correct valve stems and ordered a new tire from Discount tire. Should be back on the road by Friday if all goes well.

    Great day for a good cause. Over $2,000 was raised for Wounded Warrior Project. We had 8 FFRs and 1 Superformance. Even a top 10 car.

    That ECC show should be cool. Probably some pretty crazy cars with hydraulic suspensions there!
