Hello from Illinois

Hi everyone, just getting back into cars, been into Harleys for years,
bought a nice 69 LM1. My reintro into cars greeted me with a head gasket problem, so I'm halfway thru the repair now. Health is not what it used to be so it takes me longer to do these jobs now, but ill get thru it. Just wanted to say hi, and i like my car, fun to drive, feel like a kid again. John.

X2. And the MCACN show in Rosemont in the winter is a great place to meet up with TC and CRG members. I've met with Roger and Jerry (jr68) and others the past few years.

For anyone in the area, Old Orchard shopping mall in Skokie has a big show every Monday evening.

Re: Hello from Illinois

Welcome to the fourm, I grew up in a small town south of Rockford in Dixon. I use to sell Camaro parts at the St. Charles or maybe Wheaton swap meets back in the 80's just the extra junk I had. Now some of that stuff is a small mint

1968 RS 327 12 bolt, M-21, Hurst inline Ramrod shifter, and old school Centerlines
