Chicagoland MG Club: Driveline April 2017
Upcoming Events

Spring Tune-up
Donís Auto Ade

Saturday April 22, 2017 12 noon Ďtil 4PM
2S781 Rt. 59, Warrenville

For the fourth year Donís Auto Aid (Goodyear) will be hosting the annual tune-up party. This is your opportunity to put your MG up on a service rack and see your car from the bottom up. Squishy brake hoses? Soft motor mounts? Suspension bushings looking a little sick? Nowís the time to find out before the driving season arrives in full. Of course Iíll be there to offer expert advice for any problem that may surface. Well, I can at least tell you who to see about it. Cowboy and others will be there to help out.

There is a Car Quest just up the street, but it would be best to bring your own 20w50 and filters. As Donís is a full service garage, all work must be finished so that the racks are open for business Monday morning. Tire mounting, including on wire wheels, and alignments will be available. Donís is located on the east side of Rte. 59 about a mile north of the E/W tollway. Afterwards itís off to Two Brothers Brewery for refreshments.

2017 Spring Chicken

May 7, 2017

I hope you have saved the date of Sunday, May 7 for this yearís Spring Chicken Run. We are almost a month earlier this year, so we hope the global warming continues.

We will be starting at the same place at the Deer Park Town Center shopping mall on the northwest corner of Rand Road, Hwy 12 and Deer Park Blvd. in the same lot as last year, next to the Starbucks. It is easy to see once you are at the strip mall. There is also a Panara Bakery just across from the Starbucks.

The center of the mall where we meet is on the west side of Hwy 12 for the new-bees that will be joining us. We will start the Drivers Meeting at 10:00am. The drive will be approximately 1 1/2 hours and we will end up at the same local watering hole as 2015, where you can order lunch from the menu. Yes, they have chicken along with other items.

The spot is Cruisin, located in Gilberts. The address is 11 Galligan Rd, Gilberts, IL 60136, for those that just want to join us for lunch. Their web site is: There will also be a few challenging questions for the navigators to answer along the way. Jana and I look forward to seeing you at this yearís drive. Please let me know if you will be attending so we can provide the information to Cruisin.

Home phone 847-566-5075 or email Hope you can make it to this yearís SPRING CHICKEN RUN!!
