Are there any past memmbers of The Old Town Escorts Model Car Club from Chicago on this forum? This club was in it's heyday from about 1975 to 1986 and was a great club to belong to in its time.

Jim999,
Yes I was a member from about '75 to the end which was '86 if I'm not mistaken. I remember your dad well and he was a great guy. I was even at your house before your dad and mom (Marilyn) divorced. Your dad did a great job putting on the swap meets by himself at the Hillside Holiday Inn when the club didn't want to do it anymore. Craig and I ran the model contest for your dad at the shows. I still have a couple of his business cards that say Chicago On Wheels.
