Chicagoland MG Club: Driveline April 2015
Upcoming Event
Spring Tune-Up Party
April 25, 2015

Don’s Auto Aid (Goodyear) has invited the club back for our annual spring tune-up party. This is the same location we were at last year. Here’s your chance to put your MG up on a service rack and give the underside a good inspection. Smelling salts will be available for those who faint after seeing their car’s condition. And the Warrenville paramedics will be on call for anyone with a heart condition. Not available will be 20w50 oil and filters, so bring your own. You can also get a wheel alignment (bring your own specs) on state of the art equipment and wheels balanced, including wires. If you partake in these services, I’m sure you will show your gratitude with a generous tip.
The scheduled date is Saturday April 25, 12noon until 4PM. With up to seven racks available, we can get a lot of cars done. First come, first served. MGs have priority over members’ other LBCs. Check with the Pit Boss (Cowboy) before starting any non-routine maintenance projects. All work must be completed.
Don’s is located at 2s781 Rt. 59 in Warrenville, about an English mile north of the East-West I 88 toll road. When we’re done at Don’s we will proceed to one of the local brew pubs for a pint and some vittles. Which establishment is yet to be determined, but we’re aiming for Two Brothers or Rock Bottom.

Spring Brunch Drive
May 3, 2015

With March weather dipping back into the polar ranges again next week, it may be hard to imagine that there will be a Spring again this year. And with that come the three Spring Events in the month of May.

One of these events is the annual Spring Brunch Drive hosted by the Vintage MG Car Club of Chicago. The final plans are being worked out so no information is available at this time. Stay tuned.
