    Long time lurker, picking up my car this week! Are there any get-togethers near Chicago coming up? I see the party in Ohio but that is a little far. Would anybody like to meet for lunch in the next couple of weeks?

    Is that your garage or the place you purchased it from?

    Either way welcome to the Viper Nation!
    2002 GTS ACR, Mopar 3.73's, 20" HRE front & rear, Autoform LeMans Wing, a few other goodies

    It is said to never waste a day. Thank you SRT and Mopar for living by those words and giving us the products that get us out of bed in the morning.

    Oh. And red cars are slow and yellow cars rock!!

    Thanks! I think it might... I actually didn't sleep at all last night and I have at least 3 more days to go.

    I'm downtown - sucks for insurance, gas, parking, pretty much everything. I'm considering leaving it at a friend's house in Morton Grove and picking it up on weekends but I know I'm going to want to drive it every day. Still trying to figure that out. Hey - parking is free from 9pm - 8am so if I drive it all day I'm good right?

    This weekend I'm going on a road trip to a friend's wedding in Michigan But I'll pm you if you want to get together the weekend after!

    Slithr - thanks, yes that's the one!

    Just got the email about it. Unfortunately the 1871 opening is tomorrow and I was planning to go to that. Very unlikely I'll be there tomorrow
