    I was in Crystal lake up until about 5 years ago. Was far better than where I grew up in Des Plaines.

    Welcome!

    Did you live in Crystal Lake back when the car show was downtown? Remember a back halfed '82 AMC Concord wagon? That was me!

    A little before my time. I was born in ‘84 and started riding bmx in the late 90’s. The “mid school” stuff has started to become collectible now which is crazy.
    Don’t think I ever went to a show in crystal lake. I used to frequent the barrington and Cary shows though. I lived in Crystal Lake from 07-13.
