I saw a kona blue parked in Peoria a few months ago but I haven't seen one on the road yet.

Cool. What do you know about Blackhawk farms in south Beloit? Are there any tracks in your area?

I do not know anything about Blackhawk Farms. I am planning on going there and maybe Road America if my work schedule allows.

Road America would be fun. Blackhawk is close so I'll go there at least once.

I will probably end up there at least once, as I am planning on joining the Northwoods Shelby Club, and I believe they host an event there every year.

Did you pickup the CO boss from the dealer in Rochelle?

I have a Kona Blue Boss in Steward.

I had it courtesy delivered there. They had one back in April and refused to sell at MSRP so I found one elsewhere.

Steward is just up the road from me, I live in Compton. Rt251 & Rt 30 roughly.

We'll have to get together in the spring.

I bought it at Court Street Ford in Kankakee (Bourbonais actually). I have bought 5 cars from them over the years.

I'm up by Rockford as well, but I have a friend that lives in coal city that I will be visiting at some point next summer. So perhaps I will see you around while I am out that way cruising :)

Great. I lived in Coal City for 15 yrs. I sold my house to my son, bought another house only 8 miles away. I'm outside of Wilmington actually. Let me know when you come this way. I make it up to Rockford now & then. Used to race at the speedway in Loves park. If I head that way I'll give you a shout.

I went to the Fall 2011 Northwest Shelby Club race at Balckhawk Farms. Not a big turn out cold that day. There was one White Boss there---Lee

Have you been to the Autobahn Road race track in Joliet? The Chicago Mustang club had a car show there last Fall and we got to Trour the Track. We Had a Blast!

I checked into it and unless you can attend a club date they have no open track days. Membership only, and it's not cheap.

I read your post earlier today. I thought what the hell and I called the Autobahn & talked to the president, Mark Basso. He is a great guy. He invited me out to tour the facility.

A really nice place, clubhouse, observation decks, go karts with their own track, vendor garages, its like its own little town on 360 acres. I got to cruise the whole race course. It is a really cool track & facility. Now the uncool part. It is EX-PEN-SIVE. 35K initial membership fee, plus annual dues of 4K. So the first year is 39K, then only 4 grand a year after that. With that you have complete access to everything there 7 days a week. Basically can run the course from 8am to 7pm 6 days a week. They have trackside lots that are 100 ft. X 150 ft. for 200K. The place is very, very impressive without a doubt. I just don't have that kinda coin to toss around just for kicks. It would be nice, just not practical. Hey, I did get to meet Bobby Rahal. He has a HUGE 3 story garage/office/weekend getaway there. He came into the clubhouse as I was getting ready to leave. Seemed like a down to earth guy, just looking for an airhose to inflate a low tire on his big 7 series BMW.

I think I will have to opt for the one day track deal with MVP or that other outfit for a few hundred bucks for the weekend. Take care, Rob.

Rob that's exactly my impression. Can't touch that price. They had a package they offered me for like $5000 that offered a few select dates for track use, not worth it to me.

There are a few club dates that if you are a club member you can attend. That may be the way to go.
