    NOTICE: At this time the Chicagoland MG club is moving full steam ahead.

    We all know that Covid is still a thing to be concerned about especially indoors. Please vaccinate! We are all too old to learn the entire Greek alphabet.

    They have reserved their usual date and buildings in hope that Covid related group restrictions will be behind us. So mark your calendar with this "Save-The-Date" information. Vendors and shoppers alike should monitor this site for any updates about the Swap in March 2022. Past vendors have been directly contacted.

    https://www.chicagolandmgclub.com/swapmeet/

    Since 1997 the CMGC swap meet has been held at the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton, Illinois in early spring. The site is an indoor heated facility that is centrally located approximately 30 miles due west of downtown Chicago. There will be a food vendor on site and an ATM in the building.

    The North St. Paul History Cruze started on a Friday night in 1996 with about 25 cars near the intersection of 7th Avenue and Margaret Street. It has grown and now draws 700 to 1,800 cars each week that park along a half-mile + stretch of 7th Avenue and fills many adjacent parking lots. The street is closed to other traffic for the night and a fair-like atmosphere prevails with street vendors, music, and food.

    The Cruze runs each Friday night from early June to late September (6:00pm - 10:00pm) rain or shine.  During the summer only six Friday nights are reserved for a "Car Club of the Night".  This year the MMGG has been selected and assigned August 19th as a featured Car Club. 

    The featured Club has a new reserved "premier" show-lot location. The lot is located on the east end of 7th Ave on the southeast corner of the intersection of 7th Ave and Charles Street. You enter the show-lot from Charles St.

    The lot can hold up to 20+ cars so please contact me (Paul Lyon, plyon1962@gmail.com) or signup on the website “Events” section if you will be attending.  The Main Street show-lot will open at 5:00pm. As in previous years I will need some help directing attendees into the show lot and help picking the top car of the night. 

    More information to come. 

    Best wishes, Paul Lyon
