The location is conveniently located between Harlem Ave. (Rt 43) and LaGrange Rd. (Rt 45), just to the south of I-80. The owners are gracious enough to allow us to host the meet at their shop. They are also offering discounted rates if you want to work on your car during the meet. Small projects (oil changes, tire rotation, etc) only please!! There's plenty of parking spots for our cars. Be sure to bring your folding chairs and if needed, a canopy! There will be a BBQ (burgers, hot dogs, etc) and we're asking people to please pay $10 to cover the cost of food. At roughly 5:00pm or so, we will cruise to downtown Chicago for photoshoots. We have multiple locations that we will work out. For those with DSLR cameras, please bring them!

Meet Rules:

For the Chicagoland Ford Fusion Meet, there will be rules to follow. First and foremost is RESPECT:
1. Respect for the location - other local car shows and meets use this location. Let's not ruin it so that we can keep coming back for future
2. Respect for Rules of the Road - we don't need local law enforcement arresting anyone.
3. Respect for the community. No personal insults, no bullying, no douchbaggery! Everyone has different tastes (and opinions) but please keep your opinions to yourselves. Let's enjoy the meet and have fun!

Everyone please watch this video as it applies to all car shows/meets:

Thanks everyone! Hope to see you there!
