Default Cruise Night (Imports), 8.22.2002, Crystal Lake, IL

Crystal Lake, IL / Thursday, August 22nd / 6PM-9PM

Okay, so every Thursday night throughout most of the summer downtown Crystal Lake has a pretty large car show. It's mostly classics and vette's, but anyone is welcome to simply bring their car down and show it. There are always a LOT of people there every night, and afterwards there's a few bars downtown that we all hang out at.

Each night there's is a different theme, although it's basically the same car's week after week. According to the posted schedule, Thursday August 22nd is Import Night.

Last year I went on the so-called Import Night, and the total import turnout was me and one other civic. I brought my car there this past thursday for the hell of it, and someone else brought their stock NSX, that was it for imports. This year I'd like to organize getting as many nice imports there as possible, to show my towns and the attendees there are more than 2 nice imports out there .

This is an organized event, but it's not a typical show with judges and prizes. You simply roll into town as early as you can (after 7PM it's hard to find parking) on thursday night, pull up a in a parking lot in one of the designated spots (banks, 3 blocks of street parking, etc.) and hang out.

As I said, all are welcome, but please only attend if you can act responsible. The only Honda I saw last week was a black Si that came into a parking lot later on, revved the engine and then peeled out, promptly getting pulled over by one of the many squad cars sitting downtown.

Let's prove to some of the 'older' crowd that many of us have nice cars that we work hard for just as they had/do and we aren't like some F&F punks.

Directions from the East:
- Take Rt.14 NW into Crystal Lake.
- Look for a Best Buy on the right hand side, the next stop light will be Main St.
- Go right (North) on Main.
- Go to second stop light, and turn left on Crystal Lake Avenue.
- Go to first stop sign, and turn sharp right on Grant St.

Directions from the South/Southeast:
- Take I-90 to the Randall Road exit.
- Take Randall Road past Rt.62 and into Crystal Lake.
- Stay right on Randall which turns into Rakow Rd and road merges to 1 lane.
- After the curve right, go left at next stop light which is Pyott Rd/Main St.
- Head north and you'll see a Best Buy on your right just past Rt.14.
- Go to second stop light, and turn left on Crystal Lake Avenue
- Go to first stop sign, and turn sharp right on Grant St.

Later on I'll post exactly where we are going to try and park, as I get an idea how many people plan on coming out, so let's get a few nice car's out there....

I'm surprised nobody from CL is jumping in on this. I'm there about 3 times a week, and I can't ever get through town without seeing a WRX.
