Congratulations on your "new" car! And welcome to the group :p
Depending on where you live in Illinois there are quite a few group members around the Chicago and Springfield areas. Or if you happen to live closer to the Wisconsin side there is a great group that meets monthly in the greater Milwaukee area. One of our members is also a Kadette fan and would probably be of great help to you and your car. Keep us posted on your progress and let us know if we can be of help. :)

Bought mine in Seattle a little while back with just 26K on the clock at the time. All original, including paint and Solex. Flew up from Texas, drove back through 7 states with only two small problems, both fixed on the road. Ran out of gas in Idaho at 2.30AM with my exit in sight (didn't realize tank was 3 gallons smaller than my GT!) and had oil gusher from the failed OP sender just north of Helper, Utah.

That little car really grows on you!! If you need help, I'm here.
