I did a search and didn't find a spotted thread for IL. I apologize in advance if I missed it, otherwise here it is!

2 weeks ago: At the gym I spotted a black GTR on silver/polished lip wheels (21"?).

Last night: My wife told me chatted with a very nice couple in a black 2010 GTR at the gas station. She was happy to meet humble owners (we rarely see any GTRs around, and most of the time just get taunted by base model mustangs/chargers when we drive)! Personally I think she's happy to be a part of the GTR club... much like Costco. Then again, I love Costco...

I always see a black 2012/2013 Going east bound on Army trail rd in Wayne around 7:40am everyday.

I wonder if they know AMS is about a mile from there :)

Yeah someone I grew up with made similar comments about his car. Then it blew up after adding a turbo kit and he ended up selling it LOL

I live in Schaumburg and have a '09 SS. I'm always on the lookout for other GTRs, but never have seen any in Schaumburg. I have seen 2 black ones in the Roselle area and a white one up north near Wauconda.
Tomorrow is not promised.

Hey Mark, I think thats my white GTR you mention up by Wauconda. Is it the one with the GTR logo and stripe down the side? If so, yeah thats me :) I havent met you but I did talk with your brother at Thorton's last summer. Seems he borrowed your car to run up to the store (any excuse will do, right?!) Had a few teen boys creaming their boxers when they saw not one, but two GTRs at the gas station. Do u ever go to the Chicago Garage car meets in Carpentersville?

My brother told me about that last summer. Lol. No, I don't go to the Chicago Garage meets. There is a local Chicago group I meetup with, but it's primarily because I also have a M3 ('03). BTW....my brother drives a Lotus Evora now. People also notice that car as much, if not more, than ours.
Tomorrow is not promised.
