Free admission for children 6 and younger when they accompany a paying adult.


doe anyone else find this phrasing funny?

Translation: Pay for Andrew (2 1/2) and do not accompany him does that mean he can just roam around all day unaccompnied because I paid for him.... that is the cheapest babysitting I ever seen!

Just got home from the Auto Show. I normally park under McCormick place east (next to the lake) and leave the coats in the car. But this year we parked at the Hyatt walked 30 feet to the elevator and the rest was inside. So a few seconds of cold and an entire show with OUT lugging a coat around. Parking was $24.00 for six hours, but they have tickets on the pay machine to validate, so then it was only $18.00. Hell of a lot closer and a lot less traffic. Try it out and see how it works for you.

The Fiat/Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep area was cool they have the ride along and the Call Of Duty Jeep ( with some Girl with bad implants) there. The 2012 srt8 is on the turntable but the 2011 Charger is open on the floor. Its a good show this year.
PS whoever said something about the Clubman you will like it, I did.

Take Care
Chris

Sorry forgot about the after market stuff, you know toys for our cars. It sucked! Not much of anything, just some rims and one booth with over priced lights. I was looking forward to a better display.

I really do I just wish they would use a new engine, they been using the same engine since mini came back to the usa, all they keep doing is adding more boost to it, I'd love a 2.0-2.5L turbo in there vs the 1.6L if it had one of those i think i would be a subbie/evo killer

I was watching the Chi. Auto Show on tv. You can vote for the best car and the new srt had 17% of the vote. Not bad.
