I went to the Iron Gate annual June Intl Auto Show Sunday the 23rd. It was not a great turnout. Plenty of lookers parked on the gravel lots but not as many nice show cars as expected. But there were threats of rain...

Saturday June 29 is the Chicago PCA cars & coffee at Labriola in Oakbrook. That one is usually well attended and the weather should be good (we deserve a break).

A couple i saw was
1. Hooters at 8225 West Higgins Rd, Sunday June 30 from 9 to 3. But it is a car & bike show, so I'm not sure who/what usually attends those..
2. A $20 car show Sunday June 30 at Sacred Heart School, 815 N 16th Ave, Melrose Park, but im not familiar with that show either.

The only other interesting ones in the suburbs i know are the weekly ones, Westmont on Thursdays and Downers Grove on Fridays.

Yes. I've owned Porsches for 49 years and been a PCA member for 36 years. But I am retired and do spend Winters in the Orlando area. Come on out to Labriola Saturday AM for cars and coffee. It should be a good event. Weather is looking decent.

SuperCar Saturdays car show is tomorrow at The Arboretum in South Barrington. May be a shower or two, but otherwise the weather looks good with temperatures in the 70s.

Has anyone seen anything else in Chicagoland this weekend?

Here's some event info...

NEW FOR 2019 Arrival Information
As you probably know by now, tomorrow's Supercar Saturdays event will take place at The Arboretum of South Barrington. Please see the map below and follow the signs to the event as you will need to enter from one specific entrance, all others will be blocked. .

Roll-in will begin promptly at 9:00 AM this is 1 hour later than in past years to accommodate scheduling needs of The Arboretum of South Barrington and will apply to all events held ONLY at that location in 2019. Please follow the Supercar Saturdays signs by turning into the Arboretum from either the entrance off of Bartlett Road or the entrance at the corner of Higgins and Arboretum Drive (see map below). If you choose to arrive early that is your choice, please do not expect to park inside the venue before 8 AM. Do not come in through any other entranceor you will find yourself at a roadblock and sent back out to the main road. Please on the maps below for more detail.

UPDATED RULES - Please Read

FAILURE TO FOLLOW STAFF INSTRUCTIONS WILL RESULT IN EJECTION FROM THE EVENT. If you break the rules you will be asked to leave immediately and without warning. If you break them a second time, you will be banned from all future events, period.
  • 1) NO SOLICITATION OF ANY KIND, no passing out fliers, no fliers or business cards on your cars, and no covering your car from top to bottom, nose to tail in decals to promote your or any other business or entity(except by the event sponsor)
  • 2) Be safe, respectful and tasteful ľ No Speeding, no racing, no burnouts, or other unsafe driving. THIS INCLUDES TEARING OUT OF THE PARKING LOT. We want the event site to be safe for all those attend.
  • 3) No standing at event exits or entrances for any reason; it is unsafe.
  • 4) No excessive engine noise people live near Supercar Saturdays venues, and we'd like to let them sleep in on Saturday mornings. THIS MEANS NO REVVING
  • 5) No parking in handicap spaces, they exist because people need them, enough said
  • 6) If you are a car dealer, broker, or otherwise sell cars as a profession or at a profit, click here for an additional set of rules that applies directly to you
POLICE PRESENCE WILL BE ELEVATED, INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR WILL NOT BE TOLERATED
Venue Map


We park cars at this event as they arrive on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information on the change away from the previously used preferred parking system several years ago, check out this blog post.

PLEASE NOTE: You will only receive one email regardless of the number of cars you registered. Also, due to the large turnout of cars expected at the event, we highly recommend arriving between 9 and 9:30 so that you're parked and ready to go by the time all of the stragglers roll in around 10.
