I'm not going, but Ira who's in my club is. He was kind enough to ask me if I needed anything for him to look for. I said yes! Crossfire emblems! I figured that if you could find a new pair in GM boxes, that would be the place. I sure hope he calls me with prices. I've emailed Paragon and they say they've got them. They must be like the only company who does. lol

So long as money holds out I should be going. To go to Bloomington prior was kinda hard, but now when its just a short 45 minute ride from home you bet I am going! I have a friend from Michigan who will probably drive her '01 C5 down unless she plans on bidding at the auction. For me I will trailer and try to have my car judged for its first time here. Hope to see you there!

Definitely going. Can't bring my baby though, while I'm down there I'll have to find a place to buy high octane fuel since she needs 99 octane and I can't make it there and back on one tankful. |bouncy|

Rich,
I do know of a gas station that sells 100 octane racing fuel near me if you wanted to still take your car down to Bloomington. It is located in I believe Bensenville. If you or anyone else is interested in the station I'll get the address for you.

Hiya Nikki,

Care to share any of that info with the rest of us? And if it isn't in the Vette Events Calendar yet we should definitely get it posted there.

Thanks!

Jim,
All of the info for Bloomington Gold is on their website.
www.bloomingtongold.com
I am planning on being there at least 2 days, Thursday for workshops, and Saturday for the show.

Ok, thanks. I'll check it out and also look in the Vette Events Calendar for it. Until then here's a clickable link to the Bloomington Gold website.

Hi Nikki,

Yes, I would like the address of that station and a rough description of their location.

Rick,
The address is as follows;

Clark Oil
101 W. Irving Park Rd
Bensenville, Illinois

The station is located just west of York Road. Was just there on Saturday. Racing Fuel is there although it cost $3.45 a gallon. It is also 100 octane! Luckily my car can still run on good ole premium (93 octane) |thumb| . I know my pocket wouldn't like to pay for the racing fuel since I drove over 20K mile on the 73 last year. It's tough enough paying for premium! |haha| I hope this helps. If there are any more questions please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks for the address. The 110 octane stuff up here is $3.95. It's not too bad though since I only use 4-5 gallons a tankful. It's an extra $10 a tank (difference between $1.85 for 93 and $3.95 for 110), and considering the substantial performance difference I think its worth it. The major downside is that I am limited on the distance I can drive and I don't believe in putting a gas can in the car.

(for anyone else considering trying high octane fuel you won't get the full benefit unless your engine is built and tuned for it.) |thumb|

I also plan on going to the show. I will be there Saturday. That is if all goes well and the Harley I will be driving down from Ft. McCoy gets me there. Hope to see some of you there.
