Thanks, everyone. Doing good and treatment is proving effective.

Here are a couple of pictures from the car show yesterday. It was held at the Historic LaSalle St Auto Row, in Aurora, IL. This is a nearly forgotten 1-2 blocks of street, a few blocks off the main downtown area.

It was originally part of the Lincoln Hwy where it jogged North-South from one East-West street to another.

Starting around 1905, many small Auto Dealerships were built along these couple of blocks. While most of the buildings are either empty, being used for other businesses, or being used for storage, the building architecture has survived in very good shape. I was even able to locate the O.D. Lawson Packard Dealership which was located at 121-135 S. LaSalle St. Currently vacant, the building's front facade is very similar to other small Packard dealerships I have seen.

Some of the three-story buildings still have their original working auto-elevators to move cars to the 3rd floor for storage.

Enjoy!

The buildings on that street look awesome. It's impressive that they are in such good condition.

Love the sign you made for the car. I really need to look at doing something similar.
