By the way... what's a cruise night?
Nick, if you need/want someone to go with you to this meeting (you said Thursday, but I'm assuming you mean Friday/today?), I'm more than willing to go. I am planning to arrive in Pontiac around 4:00 PM today. That'd be sweet if we don't have to pay the $10.00, but than again it is for charity, so I don't mind either way.
A cruise night is essentially the same thing as a car show, except there are no awards. Everyone just hangs out, checks out cars, etc. It's a little more laid back than a show.

Holy blast from the past Batman! It'd be great to see you again Josh! It's been over 3 years now since our Chicagoland meet at Busse.

We may do a trip to Starved Roack state park, participate in the Cruise Night, and will have dinner at Pontiac Family Kitchen.
Like I said, I just want to make sure that we will indeed all be parked together, otherwise... what's the point? Hopefully there is no miscommunication, etc. and it won't be a problem.

Will do Tim ! Will you please bring your service manuals with you? I'd like to check them out in person and see whether they'd be worth buying or not. Thanks!
So, I detailed the interiors of both Vibes and washed mine yesterday. I will be washing my mom's today. Than I will get my Vibe loaded up, get my stuff packed and I am hoping to leave Sandwich around 2:00 PM which will put me at the Best Western by about 4:00 PM. My mom and dad will be coming down tomorrow afternoon in my mom's Vibe.
I am bringing my Craftsman 154-piece mechanic's tool set with me in case anyone needs to do any work on their Vibe. I will also be bringing plenty of bottles of Ice Mountain water and a small cooler. I'll also be bringing bug spray and sunscreen, along with plenty of car cleaning products, including a small vaccuum that plugs into the cigaretter lighter. And last but not least, brand new Husky floor and cargo liners for any 2009-2010 Vibe owners who may be interested *hint hint*.
I'll see everyone later this afternoon and/or tomorrow! Vibe woo !
