Hi SkyBaby! Hope things are better today for you.
I have been in 4 shows since we last talked. I get a big kick out of them.
Information to find them is scetchy but there.
First Google -- Try Car Shows Illinois or Rockford. That may help. Car Cruises also, always include at least the state.
Here is one as an example:
http://www.hubcapcafe.com/calendar/illinois.htm

There are many and some are more up to date than others.
Once you make one -- you will start getting more info from the others in the shows... Local papers and storefront posters as well...
If Rockford has a summer fest or you see other fests etc -- check for shows.
In general Car Cruises are free - most Shows will require a small entry fee. Not always teh case but a rule of thumb.
You've seen my pictures at these shows -- the SKY often gets overwhelmed with lookers. Be prparred to answer questions alll show long.:thumbs:

Once you go to one, then they drop flyers to all the other ones. I bet everyshow I go to I get 10 - 12 more shows. Pick out the ones that fit your schedule and go.

I have started to make seom pretty go friends, that aren't Sky owners, but own Vette, and muscle cars!

Yes if you go somewhere where you know some one for your fist show, you will find that they are fun and very car/owner friendly. I was lucky as there is a cruise not more than a mile from my house all summer - every Saturday...:D

Rockford Cruise Nights

Skybaby:

Hope you continue to feel better.

Beef A Roo (World Famous Rockford fast food franchise for the un-initiated) tends to have weekly cruise nights. I've seen them on South Alpine and at Riverside, but I don't know the night that they're scheduled.

There are always a bunch of car shows at the Boone County Fair Grounds and Boots & Bonnets have been having shows at the Poplar Grove Airport.

I'm sure that you can find the schedules on-line.

Unfortunately, Jeep Grand Cherokees don't leave much of an impression so I've stayed away.

Car Shows

I also went to a cruise-in that the place across the street from Saturn of Rockford holds every Saturday (if my failing memory serves). I was at the retailer doing an event with our club race car and saw tons of nice street muscle roll in there. The dealership said they have hundreds of people try to get in there every weekend in the Summer.. Anybody in Rockford area help with an exact location?

DSqr, by the looks of your autosig, it looks like it won't belong before you have your own Sky to cruise around in.

You should try to join us in Bloomington on 8/12. It would be a great welcoming party.
