Default Chicago 996 Group??

I am new to the Porsche marque - been a BMW enthusiast for the past 20+ years. Just bought my first Porsche - a 40th AE 911, #415. Looking for a Chicago 996 group that might be interested in getting together for drives, tinkering and general hanging out. Let me know if there is a group or any interest in starting one..

Funny, I'm picking up my 996 next week, and I live in the Horner Park area and was just thinking about posting something similar! I just moved here with the family and don't know anyone else around here, so looking forward to meeting some folks via cars.

Hey there, I'm in Schaumburg (Wise and Salem) and always looking for others to meet with and drive with to shows and what not. The local PCA has quit a few events so make sure to join so you get their email and calendar of events.

Chrome and Coffee is at Iron Gate Auto Condos in Naperville this Saturday (7/13). Always a pretty good show and turnout.

Wilmette. Lots of tools and a Durametric. I’f you look at my history I have addressed many issues over the years. Always willing to help another owner.

Super close neighbor.

Hope to have my black 996 parked outside Horner Park more often than not. (wife gets the condo garage spot, sacrifices.)
