Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

The driver I saw was most definitely female, though. Not to mention she was heading West right by the Highland Park Hospital. Still you?

Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

Well, spotted another one today. Whew, I'm starting to feel like my car isn't so rare anymore. hmm Anywho, one might have called this a "close encounter of the 9-2X Aero kind." Was just about to walk into my place of work (Highland Park Library) when a black Aero, no sport package (just like mine, woo), rolled into the lot. I walked toward it, in hopes of getting in a couple words about this site and the meetup on Friday, but the driver just sat inside and wouldn't get out. I didn't really have time to wait for him to do so (not to mention I didn't want to look like a total creep), so I had no other choice but to walk inside. I work almost everyday, and I'm sure I've seen this guy inside the library before, so if I spot him again, I'll be sure to give him the URL.

Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

Well good try man. I know the feeling.

Was at a car get together of all sorts a couple weekends ago. One lone WRX rolled in and I drove over there by him.
Thought he would be all over my car wanting to check it out, but I had to go up to him and be like, hey can I check out your car?

I think he thought I was just a random "Snaab" til I informed him of the subaru connection. How could a wrx owner not know this? I knew about the connection far before I bought the car.

Oh well, everything turned out ok.smile

It's funny. I feel so awkward when not so many people actually utilize the internet. I would see so many Preludes when I had mine and I'd go to chicagolandpreludeclub.com and post up that I spotted somebody. Never got a response from anybody. I'd finally catch up with them and ask them why they didn't say it was them and they go "Chicagolandpreludeclub.com eh? I'll have to check that out sometime" and then I realize, not all people use the internet to search for other owners in their immediate area. Felt funny. I still live to far west to see any of you guys. Being in Aurora isn't the best place to be. I guess I need to drive to Chicago more often.

Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

It's very close to I-88 which you would take from 294 I believe, which you would take from Chicago. Get off at the butterfield exit. Or you could take 55.

Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

Unbelieveable! A 9-2X Spotting in my own 'Hood!

Spotted a Satin Gray Aero @ 8.30 in the morning on Friday morning on Elston (right by Tony's Food Market) near Irving Park Road.

I was pulling out of Ridgeway to Elston in a burgundy Maxima along with my friend (owner of the Maxima) heading to work.

Who was it?

Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

I saw an Arctic Silver 9-2 today around 3:45 this afternoon on sheridan road near Loyola.    I couldn't tell wether it was ans Aero or not.  But there was another one in my neck of the city.

That wouldn't have been me at that time of day but I am in that area almost every day on the way to and from work.

Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

Maybe it was earlier than 1.00, were you wearing glasses?

The car was heading south on Cicero, away from Old Orchard Shopping Center.

Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

I wear sunglasses, but not eyeglasses.

Wasn't me.  I would be heading north in the AM and south in the PM.

I won't be going by that way this afternoon.

I have sinus Dr appointment near UIC at 3:30.

I'll be on the lookout for you since you live just southeast of me.

I live at Kimball and Foster.

Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

Today I saw two of them on my way home from work,  I saw a silver linear heading north on 41 near Pauly Acura in Highland park around 4:20 and then a silver Aero heading north on the edens near tower road.   It seems like Silver is the most common color.

Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

I believe I saw a 9-2x heading south bound on Old McHenry Rd. just south of Rt. 22.  I am not 100% sure as it was dark but I know it was a new Saab by the lights/grill.  Immediately after passing it I saw two deer on the side of the road starring at me but I think they were just trying to get a second look at the Saab, but whoever that was and I are both lucky we didn't come a minute later when they decided to cross the road.

Re: Chicago 9-2X Spottings

I've seen  a total of two 9-2x's. One on Route 60 just east of 94--looked to be a white Linear. And then today. Kind of blown away--a black 9-2x Linear in the parking lot by Caribou Coffee on Grand Avenue in Gurnee. I parked right next to it, hoping to run into the owner. Never did. But it did scare me. The Linear had some very noticiable scratches and was in need of a wash. It's going to take a lot of effort to keep mine looking new.
