Hello all Shelby Cobra owners -

First - Happy Holidays and Happy New Year.

I am new to this website, but an avid auto entusiast. In WI and IL, many of us have shared information and created a little email list for meeting and then cruising down together to a car show or other related event. We are always looking to add to the list so and it would be awesome to add a number of Shelby Cobra's to our cruises. If you are intersted, please send me a PM with your email address. Last year, we all met and cruised down to the Gurnee, IL car show. I look forward to seeing everyone at the next get together cruise in 2007 (Dates to be sent shortly). I have listed the guys who joined last year. It would be great to get 100 cars or more following down the freeway to an event in IL or WI. Plus, as I mentioned, it would be great to add the new Shelby Cobra members cars to join our rides.

Again, if you know anyone who would like to join the cruises, please send me a PM with your email address and I will add you to the list. Or email me at [email protected] with your email address and the type/year of BMW you have.

Moderators - I did not see a space for regional data on this forum so I posted this in the General Area. Please let me know if this was wrong and where I should have posted it.

I look forward to including all of the Shelby Cobra owners that are intereted. Awesome car to say the least.

Regards,

JG853

2007 dates are as follows:

Dates:
(1) Friday - June 15, 2007 - Meet & Greet Cruise the Gurnee Car Show
This first event will be a meet and greet for group introductions and to get to know everyone. For the members that will join the cruise from WI to IL, we will meet at the Milwaukee County Park & Ride Lot -College Avenue in-between 6:15 PM and 6: 45 PM. We will then leave the park and ride lot and go to the Gurnee Car Show at promptly 6:45 PM, following each other in a line down the freeway. For those individuals that will be meeting us from the Chicago and Northern IL suburbs, I will provide a meeting spot in a subsequent email in Gurnee so we can all pull in together, somewhere in around 7: 30 PM. After the show, if the group wants we can cruise somewhere together and get something eat.
As I mentioned above, I will send out a subsequent email message to everyone as we approach this date with more logistical information. Within this email, I will also create a spreadsheet with everyone who is joining the cruise. Given that timing is important for this event, it will be critical that you inform us if you attending and where you will be meeting (Either at the park & ride in Milwaukee, or at a TBD spot in Gurnee). Obviously, the weather on the Friday, June 15, 2007 has to be nice, but everyone please save this date. Please feel free to invite your friends that have neat cars to join as well.

(2) August 2007 - Generac Power Weekend - Road America Champ Car Race
Depending on what the group wants to do, we will either attend the Generac 500 / American Le Mans series race Saturday or the Generac Champ Car Grand Prix Sunday. The meeting spot will be the Milwaukee County Park & Ride Lot - College Avenue again, and will follow each other to Road America and all park together. For those individauls that live closer to the track , we will determine a spot a location that we will meet you at near the track so we can all pull in and park together.

(3) September 2007
- Fall Cruise 2007 - Date TBD (Open to suggestions on where to go)

Again, if anyone is interested, please send me an email ([email protected])with your email address and I will add you to the list. (Updated list below).

Not really - I think the title says Shelby owners. In the body, I am not sure why I put that. My mistake.

Anyway, your invited to bring your Shelby GT 500. I hope we get a bunch of them. I know the individuals that decide to particiapte will have a good time. The cars on the list speak for themselves. As mentioned previously, it would be excellent to have a number of GT500 members participate and I look forward to meeting everyone.

Update

I have split the Cruise / Show Dates into two sections below. I hope to see everyone at the first car show (May 12, 2007) and then the first cruise (June 15, 2007).

If you want to be added to the list, please send me an email to [email protected] with your email, make/model/year of car. The list is well over 300 at this time.

Regards,

JG853

2007 Cruise Dates:
(1) Friday - June 15, 2007 - Meet & Greet Cruise the Gurnee Car Show
This first cruise will be a meet and greet for group introductions and to get to know everyone. For the members that will join the cruise from WI to IL, we will meet at the Milwaukee County Park & Ride Lot - http://www.dot.wisconsin.gov/travel...e/d2/pr4030.htm (Lot 40 - 30) in-between 6:15 PM and 6: 45 PM. We will then leave the park and ride lot and go to the Gurnee Car Show at promptly 6:45 PM, following each other in a line down the freeway. For those individuals that will be meeting us from the Chicago and do not want to join the parade down from Wisconsin, we will meet off of Rte. 132. Basically, take rte. 132 off I-94 to the 2nd stop light which is Gurnee Mills Circle West. Turn right and go North thru the stoplight and the next stop sign about 1/4 mile total to the parking area on the right ( You will see the Gurnee Mills movie theatre to the right). Z06 Bob will be in this parking lot so you will see him/his beautiful black LG Z there as well. The plan is to be at this location by 7:20 PM - 7:30 PM. After the show, if the group wants we can cruise somewhere together and get something eat.
As I mentioned above, I will send out a subsequent email message to everyone as we approach this date with more logistical information. Within this email, I will also create a spreadsheet with everyone who is joining the cruise. Given that timing is important for this event, it will be critical that you inform us if you attending and where you will be meeting (Either at the park & ride in Milwaukee, or at Gurnee off of Rte. 132 (As described above). Obviously, the weather on the Friday, June 15, 2007 has to be nice, but everyone please save this date. Please feel free to invite your friends that have neat cars to join as well.

On other point is that thanks to Larry, for those southern WI and Northern IL individuals that would like to join the cruise from WI, but do not want to drive up to Milwaukee at the starting point (College Avenue Park & Ride), we could add one other meeting spot in Kenosha. If you are interested in this, I need to know so we know how many people want to meet in this Kenosha, WI location. I will send the address after we gauge interest. This way, more people can participate in the cruise to the Gurnee, IL car show.


(2) August 2007 - Generac Power Weekend - Road America Champ Car Race
Depending on what the group wants to do, we will either attend the Generac 500 / American Le Mans series race Saturday or the Generac Champ Car Grand Prix Sunday. We can decided during the June 15, 2007 Meet & Greet what date we all would like to go. The meeting spot will be the Milwaukee County Park & Ride Lot - http://www.dot.wisconsin.gov/travel...e/d2/pr4030.htm (Lot 40 - 30) again, and will follow each other to Road America and all park together.

Hello everyone -

We are about six weeks away from our first get together, the May 12, 2007 Project Two Customs Car Show. With this in mind, I am trying to get a head count as to who plans on attending. Details are listed in the email that I sent last month (Within the 2007 Car Show Dates section). I know the weather has to be good, but I just want to let our friends at Project Two Customs know about how many we can expect from this group. I hope that a lot of people decide to participate. Please let me know by responding via PM. More details to be sent soon to everyone.

(Also, we are approaching our first Meet & Greet Cruise - the June 15, 2007 Cruise to the Gurnee Car Show).




Previous update sent to the distribution list:

A few updates that I can provide you with since my last email to the group is that we have obtained three sponsors for the cruises:
Bella Home Med & Rehab - www.bellahomemed.com
HP Performance Corvettes - http://www.hpperformancecorvettes.com/index.html
Project Two Customs - http://www.projecttwocustoms.com/

Also, I have split the Cruise / Show Dates into two sections below. I hope to see everyone at the first car show (May 12, 2007) and then the first cruise (June 15, 2007).

Second Event - June 15, 2007 - Cruise to Gurnee, IL

As many of you know, the Friday, June 15, 2007 Meet & Greet Cruise to Gurnee, IL Car Show is coming up. With this in mind, I am currently taking roll call for who is going to be participating.

Please note that I need to know if you will be meeting me at the College Avenue Park & Ride (Southwest Lot) or will be meeting us at Gurnee, IL (Details directly below).

I will be parked at the entrance of the College Avenue Park & Ride (Southwest) to check everyone in at this event (If you are participating in the cruise). This way, I can meet everyone as well, which I did not get a chance to do at the first event. I will need everyone at the Park & Ride lot by 6:45 PM, as we will depart right at 6:50 PM to get to the show. (If I do not know you are coming, I can not wait for you if you are late). I will be at the College Avenue Park & Ride lot at 5:30 PM so if you want to come early and talk to guys at the lot, please do so. I will work to get College Avenue blocked off by the Police department so we can all put on the freeway together and follow each other to the show.

Please respond to this email ([email protected]) with the following information (1) If you will be participating so I can mark you down on the check list, and (2) where you will be meeting us (College Avenue Park & Ride, or Gurnee, IL). The goal is to get as many guys on the cruise to Gurnee, IL as possible. I think we should be able to get well over 100 cars on the cruise. Hopefully, with your participation, we can get 200 on the cruise. It is going to be fun.

Obviously the weather has to be good for this event and I will be sending a few emails like I did the first event to let everyone know about the forecast. More to come as we approach this date.

If you would like to be added to the distribution list, please send me an email to [email protected] with the make/model/year of your car (As well as city in WI)

Sept 15, 2007 - Cruise and Dinner / Car Show at Kelly's Bleachers II
Many of you wanted more seat time in your car (Driving that is) during the cruise. Thus, with this in mind, Mike C. is putting together the map for the cruise. We will be meeting in between 3:30 PM and 3:45 PM at the Waukesha County park and ride lot 67-05 - http://www.dot.state.wi.us/travel/pa.../d2/pr6705.htm. At 3:45 PM, we will depart from the park & ride lot and be on our way). Everyone will be given a map of the cruise through a scenic area and we will conclude at Kelly's Bleachers II (Wind Lake, WI) where we will have a buffet dinner at roughly 5:45 PM. The parking lot will be blocked off and only we will be able to park in the lot. Buffet dinner will include prime rib / chicken / veggie along with potato and salad - Cost $14.95 per person (Soda included). More logistics in terms of the ride to come, but the route Mike C. is putting together should be a lot of fun. Wives, spouses, significant others, and friends invited. More details to follow.

Oct 6, 2007 - HP Performance / Zinovi Motors Open House
Fall cruise to HP Performance following open house/year end party at Zinovi Motors. More details to follow.


I am currently taking a roll call for the Sept 15, 2007 event. Please email me back if you are going to participate. Obviously the weather has to cooperate.

I look forward to seeing everyone on Sept 15, 2007. My hope is to get 150 cars on the cruise. It will be a fun event. If you would like to be added to the list, please send a PM with your email address and let me know if you plan on participating.
