Fourth Fridays @ Ideola's Garage

What's It All About
  • Every fourth Friday of each month this year, we'll be hosting a casual get-together for motorsport enthusiasts of all persuasions.
  • The shop will be open, the lift will be available, as will the tire machine and wheel balancer.
  • Bring Your Own Beverage(s). Bring a Dish to Share. Bring Your Own Stories.
  • Fourth Fridays will run from Noon to 9ish.
Out of Town Guests are WELCOME!!!
Flights to O'Hare are typically cheap and easy to come by. For anyone interested in attending from out of town, I will pick you up personally if possible, or arrange for transportation.

We can accommodate up to three couples at our home, more in warm months for anyone willing to camp or stay in our pop-up.

Directions
Ideola's Garage is located on the west side of Dean Street about 2.5 miles south of the historic Woodstock square, between US-14 and IL-176. Click here for Google Maps directions.

This past Friday, 27 January, we hosted our inaugural Fourth Friday of 2017.

We've just announced our next event, which will be on Friday 24 February.

Our February Fourth Friday will be featuring Deanna's hand made Pierogis, accompanied by oven-baked Keilbasa and Saurkraut.

Bring a polish-themed dish, dessert, or beverage!

Also, Tyler Ayer will be showing off some of his cad designs, and rumor has it, we'll be working up the design for our soon-to-be-released VR sensor bracket, which will be part of our CIS-to-EFI conversion kit for the 924 and 931.

We will be live-streaming the unveiling of our latest project build tomorrow night around 7PM CDT. https://www.facebook.com/ideola/

If you're planning to attend, we're doing a good ol' American Memorial Day-style BBQ-chicken cookout, so bring a side dish or dessert to share.

Nice. Looks like the lower/deeper GT-Racing FG front we race one SP2 cars.

Went look at a similar 924T (2015 pic) a couple years ago to purchase but turned out it was a bad guards job over an ugly factory brown. Passed on it.

Very generous thing you have going on there on the monthly meets.

Cool stuff.
