Drove down with fiance'* family, flew back a day early to go to a friend'* wedding in Chicago. My parents came to it also, so they drove my fiance and I back.

While I was in Chicago, I saw a 92 SE with SSE wheels and tails and no spoiler. It was an interesting look.

Could have been a car thats part of the Illinois State Bonneville Club, some of those cars are pretty tricked out.

Sounds like a good time was had by all...

That thought crossed my mind. If I had a chance, I might have talked to the guy, but we were in the way to the ceremony. We were in a hurry. My parents were supposed to bring my clothes and forgot. So I had to make a REALLY QUICK trip to Ford City mall for pants, which they didn't really have my size, and North back up Cicero Ave to the Church. It was sssllloowww goin'. The rest of the trip was pretty smooth. Got searched at the airport. The first guy at the security line gave us these yellow cards with red polka dots. I was like "Whatta we win." He was like "Possible strip search." me: "So, a first class upgrade is out of the question?"
