Chicagoland MG Club: Driveline June 2017
Upcoming Events
Mid Summer MG Party
July 1, 2017
Slot racing with car guys, with a day at the beach!

Come join an MG Mid-Summer party July 1st from 1pm to 5pm at the home of Scott Fohrman at 637 Sheridan Square in South Evanston. Enjoy a barbecue of burgers, dogs and sausage while racing on a 4 lane 18x 8-foot slot racing track that crisscrosses the table 4 times! The track features huge elevation changes, silly scenery (look for the nude sun bathers or the teens overturning the outhouse) and with drinking and racing allowed, it will be a fun time.  The plan is to have “crash and burn” races until 4 pm and then form up for a “Team Enduro", with your teammates spotting while you drive. Very exciting and usually chaos! Prizes will be awarded!

If racing is not your thing, the house is less than 1/2 a block from Evanston’s South Ave. beach. The large soft sand beach extends into a long shallow out into Lake Michigan, making the water warmer (usually) and fun for non-swimmer to get wet. Admission to the beach is $8 for adults and $6 for kids under 12. Plenty of room for changing and showering at the beach or at the house.

Parking is in our parking lot/alley/driveway to the west side of the house until full, then on Sheridan Square with a 2-hour time limit or better still, on Sheridan Road or anywhere west of Sheridan Road in the quiet neighborhood to the west.

Feel free to explore the 100-year-old house which has been undergoing a 10-year restoration. Parked in back will be a 1932 MG J2, a 1958 MG Magnette, a 1965 MGB V8 and perhaps more!

Please call Scott with any question on his cell @ 847 212-9388 and look forward to seeing you!

Garage Tour and Ray’s Morris & MG Picnic
Saturday July 22, 2017

The garage tour out to Ray’s Picnic will start at 9:00 am from the garage 211 E. School Lane, Prospect Heights, IL 60070. Emma and the MGC works in progress are there for you viewing pleasure while were having a coffee and some early morning snacks.

The main stop will be at McCabe Auto Restoration on 860 Tower Road in Mundelein, IL 60060. The company is very well known for their fantastic work on Ferrari’s and other high-end cars. We’ll get a tour of the facility by Mr. Skip McCabe

From there we will continue Ray and Mardee Costa’s house on 4115 Bennett Ave. in Gurnee, IL 60031 for Ray’s 4th Morris and MG picnic. Tables are set up, under a couple large canopies to provide shade, in their back yard (or in the garage in case of rain). The picnic is from 12:00 noon until 3:30 and hotdogs, hamburgers, barbecued chicken breasts, rolls, beer, soft drinks, etc. are served. Donations of side dishes and deserts are very much welcome.  Although this is a picnic for MG and Morris cars, all British makes are welcome. 

If you are coming, please RSVP to 224-399-9531 and leave a message.
