    Hope to get fully moved real soon, who is in the area and when/where are the good weather car shows/cruise-ins?
    Gonna miss Florida!
    Anything I need to know about my 66 and Indiana rules or regulations?

          Crown Point is a good place to live... Many good stores and places to visit...

          There is a nice gated neighborhood with homes on a lake called "Lakes of the Four Seasons"... We had a weekend 'cottage' there and was a nice place to hang out and water ski, tubing, fishing, etc.... We since have sold that home and no longer go there... If you decide to look at homes there, I heard that there was a foundation issue with some of them, so be careful and inspect if you want to buy one... They have a parade on 4th of July and many people throw parties and have a good time... We had many good times there...

          Google Maps

          There is also a water park with water slides east of Crown Point off of Route 30....

          https://www.deepriverwaterpark.com/


          There is a drive in close by Crown Point called "Blue Top" that is a local cruise spot, however whenever I went there wasn't much turn out - maybe I have bad timing....

          johnsen's blue top drive in highland Indiana



          Crown Point is only about 45 min to 1 hour away from Joliet with both NASCAR oval track and route 66 drag Racing, and a dirt oval with demo derbies... Fun to watch and participate...

          Route 66 Dragway:

          Route 66 Raceway - Route 66 Raceway


          Route 66 Speedway:

          Chicagoland Speedway - Chicagoland Speedway

          Route 66 2018 Schedule:

          Route 66 Raceway Announces 2018 Schedule

          Dirt Oval:

          Dirt Oval 66 - Home Of The Dirty "O"


          There are also some good events in the southwest side of Chicago that you may like. Many towns have their local cruises during the summer cruising season....


          There is also another good Mopar transmission guy in northwest IN called 727 specialist:

          727Specialist



          I'm only 45 minutes from Crown Point in the south west suburbs of Chicago, we can meet up sometime if you're nearby....

            When I worked up there I rented a cottage a cedar lake. The crown point jail right in the center of town, is where dillenger carved the gun out of soap and escaped.

                Thank you krazykuda and Dana for the info! I will be checking out lots of what is listed and would love to meet up with members on here after I get my stuff moved up and settled in.
                I looked at a rental near the CP Community school and the lady said that a little waterpark is being built next to the football field also, but with it only being me, it's going to be work and my 66 to entertain me for the time being until I can get out and about with new friends.

                  Pretty sure RT 41 dragstrip is right down the street in Morrocco. Last time I was there it was pretty rough. Was rebuilt not too long ago. Been hearing nice things about it.

                  Lots of shows and cruises in the area practically every day of the week during the summer.

                              Lol, If it's on the road in these parts it'll be in the air. Especially when you're behind traffic.

                                Yeah fortunately I've had the Cuda in the garage since it came off the trailer after first bath the following day. I want to get the insurance and tags swapped to Indiana before I get too excited about taking it out on the streets again so I don't get in trouble somehow. It seems like anything these days there trouble around the corner even though it's fully legal. I ended up renting a place near Broadway and 61st. Can't wait for the 60's or warmer weather!

                                Well, the somewhat dream job I moved up here for took a different corporate direction.... I will be missing out on all of the car adventures you guys let me know about because my next employment will be in Lynchburg Virginia. I'll be leaving next Thursday. Hopefully there's carshows and cruise-ins there too along with more FABO members and MOPAR fans.
