RideMakerz (05/27)

Ridemakerz MINI Cooper


We had a big crowd of 25 or so people including several kids (and many adult kids).  It was a great evening of building and modding cars and hanging out with MINI friends.  Huge thanks to Ridemakerz for having us for the night, and Francis for coordinating and organizing the event!!

Send links of pictures to steve@chicagominiclub.com and I will add them here.

Also, check out the RideMakerz Flickr Site and feel free to join the group and share your photos with them.


Come on out to Ridemakerz at Woodfield Mall for an exclusive party just for us!!

Every person who comes out to build a car will get that base car for FREE!!! That’s right, it’s not a typo!!!

The only thing we ask is that you mod your FREE car like crazy!!! that will be our way of saying “thanks” to our friends at Ridemakerz for their generosity to us and our club.

MINI friendly parking is located at the southeast corner of the mall by Sears (lower level). Walk through Sears, take the escalator upstairs and walk over. Please arrive by 6:45. we’ll enter the store togther at 7pm.

Let me know if you have any questions. Hope to see you there!!

Where: RideMakerz  5 Woodfield Drive Schaumburg, IL 60173

When: Wednesday May 27th  Meet outside the store at 6:45 so we can all enter as a group at 7pm

Why: Just for fun!!  RideMakers is giving us a huge thank you for business we’ve done in the past.

What Else:  You must let us know you are coming by adding a comment to this post or our Meetup site so we know to expect you.   We will probably be stopping somewhere close afterwards for  some quick eats if you are interested.

  1. WOW! this is great. A free base car and I still have a gift card, I won at the Mini Christmas party. How can I say NO.

  2. I’ll be there for sure. Might be a couple minutes late unless I can leave work early, but I’m planning on modding my base car. You can never have too many RC MINIs!

  3. OK to run a little late?
    I will get home at 6:15 and then go about 40 min drive I would need to pick up Katelyn.

    Hi Scott! send me an email to let me know when you think you’re going to arrive. We can exchange cell#’s so you can let me know when you arrive. thnx!!

  5. Karen and I will be joining you, It will be our first club function as that will be our official entry to the club as new members.
    We look forward to meeting everyone.


  6. I will be there. I work right down the street. I can’t wait to meet the mid west mini folks. Thanks for putting this one together. Be on the look out for a black 03 with union jacks everywhere.

  7. Hi everyone!

    Incase of inclimate weather, I’m parking in the parking structure in front of Stir Crazy Cafe (to the right of Sears on 1st lvl). I will be wearing my Black Hills Run t-shirt that has the CMMC logo on it. See you WED!!!

  8. Thanks to everyone for coming out! We had a great turnout and I hope everyone had a good time. It was really cool to see the store full of MINI friends.

    Thanks again! See you again soon!!

  9. Hey Francis,
    Thanks for setting up such an awesome event and thank you Ride Makerz!!! The turnout was way bigger than expected. I’m thinking about 30 -35 cars were made… EVERY CAR ON THE WALL WAS FREE!
    I cant believe we got a $42.00 Limited Edition Mini for free. WOAH!!! We built two cars loaded to the roof rack, R/C, extra lights, exhaust, chrome wheels, painted custom tires, headers etc. etc and it was VERY reasonable. Wild Savings and a lot of fun. I enjoyed this trip even more than Mini Takes The States visit. The personal attention from Ride Makerz made all the difference!

    Great to see everyone, and also great to see new faces as well. It’s always fun to hang out w/ MINI friends.
    BCNU soon,
