Who here is from Chicago...

I'm just wondering cause recently I've seen a white 951 a lot and a red 924S in my area and was wondering if it could be anyone from this board?

How is U of I with the 944? I'm thinking about transfering there in next semester.

Anyone though still in Chicago or surrounding areas?

I love having the 944 down here. There are definately some alys that you cant go down due to pot holes, but besides that it is a blast... tons of open country roads just a few miles away. I had some, I am guessing drunk %&$^, kick the nose panel of my car and leave a big dent over a month ago. That is the only vandalism I have encountered though. There are actually about 6 944s on campus, and there are some auto-x events down here that they normally show up to. I would just suggest finding a garage spot to ensure your car doesnt get messed with.

I'm from Glenview, but I moved to Memphis about 7 years ago! I loved it up there, but my dad got a job here.
The family since moved on to NH, and I stayed with the 944. I like it here having no snow and being able to drive it at least 9 months out of a year, usually more like 10.5 months!

Wow, jakemu you live pretty close to me. My mom actually works at the LaGrange hospital. You should let me know if you are ever working on your car.

I'm in for a meet. When I had my 914, once a month we would meet for breakfast at the IHOP in LaGrange. I can talk to the guy that set that up and see when he's starting that again so we can have a bunch of Chicago area porsches.

Would you guys be interested?

Amazing that I saw your post. I have driven down your street for years. Saw the 914 many times, jsut went by two weekends ago and was checking out your gold 944 with matching wheels.

I am in Grayslake and my brother lives in HP on Judson. I would be interested in a get together.

I am on Rennlist but thought I would look around today.

I'm not sure where that is, and unfourtunatly I won't be able to look as I only have about 50 or so miles left on my clutch as of tonight. You know a place around the area that can replace it for a good price?

I grew up in Naperville. Went away to college, never came back. I have several friends who live/grew up in Deerfield.

Can't help oyu on the mechanic thing. I had someone in the city but they sold the business. I have done all the work myself since I moved to Grayslake. Can't say I could do a clutch though either.
