Chicagoland MG Club: Driveline February 2013
Upcoming Events

17th Annual All British Car Swap Meet & Autojumble
February 24, 2013

The 17th Annual All British Car Swap Meet & Autojumble will be held on Sunday February 24, 2013 at the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton, IL from 8 AM to 3 PM.

This event now includes all marques of European sportscars and motorcycles; it is conducted with the goal of providing a meeting place for buyers and sellers of used parts, new parts, accessory items, tools, memorabilia, and just about anything else of interest to the European sports car and motorcycle enthusiast.

The Swap Meet is organized and conducted by our club alone although it has the enthusiastic support of all the other British Car clubs in Chicago. As in the past, we are again expecting approximately 100 vendor booths to be occupied when the doors open to some 700 – 800 shoppers. Since it’s beginning, this event has proven popular with British car enthusiasts from throughout the Midwest. Buyers and sellers alike travel in from a multi-state area in search of parts, services, regalia and memorabilia items.

Gate admission is $5 with free parking; Chicagoland MG Club members who volunteer to help produce the event are given free admission: we need member help for Saturday evening setup, Sunday registration/onsite management and Sunday cleanup. A sign up sheet will be available at the January and February club meetings, or call Victor L’Heureux 847-516-3093. Vendor space available through preregistration. Also, a volunteer is needed to man the CMGC club parts booth.

This is a good time to remind everyone that we have a club store on line that carries merchandise just for us. The store is located at and if you go there you can purchase custom items of attire with a color matched Chicagoland MG Club logo. You can further personalize it with your name or something else like “Safety Fast” in block or script letters. The other option that we have available to us is to go to and look for British car items to purchase. Some of their items can be personalized with our club logo.

Membership Dues are now being accepted for the 2013 membership year.

Membership dues were due January 1st. Check the top of your mailing label for the year date—if it doesn’t say ‘2013’, you haven’t paid yet. Early payments save the CMGC staff a lot of work and worries, and saves the club some printing and postage costs. You can pay the $25 dues by mail to the club PO box, or at a club meeting.
Don’t take the chance of missing out on not receiving the next issue of Driveline because you delayed in submitting your dues.
