There is a group up in the Crystal Lake area called C.A.R.S. in miniature.   Thats the closest that I'm aware of.

Most of my money goes for bow-ties, bikes and babes.  The rest I just waste.

There's also the Lake Michigan Model Car Club that meets in Bensenville. I belong to a couple of model car clubs north of the border in Wisconsin. If you want something really close to home, I think that you're out of luck. I've been going to one of the clubs for 11 years now and make almost ALL of the meetings and it is 'bout 40-44 miles one way and I've always had a good time.
