Director's Message


Welcome to the website of the West of the Lake Region of the Cadillac LaSalle Club. We are the region of the national Cadillac LaSalle Club that serves Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. Our purpose is to promote the preservation, restoration, and enjoyment of Cadillac and LaSalle cars, and to provide members with a source of information and assistance with their Cadillac or LaSalle. Our region was formed in 1985 and continues strong today with well over 100 members.

Meetings are held the last Tuesday of every month from March through November at Heritage Cadillac in Lombard. Throughout the year we hold car shows, picnics, tours, and other social events. In June we hold an annual all Cadillac and LaSalle car show called the Heritage Classic. The event is held at Heritage Cadillac and has averaged about 70 cars each year. Picnics are held once or twice per year and occur at different locations throughout the Chicagoland area. Driving tours generally occur in the fall and have included car collections as well as visits to historical buildings. Check our Calendar of Events for upcoming activities.

Membership in the West of the Lake Region requires membership in the national Cadillac LaSalle Club. Dues for the region are $20 for the year, which runs from April 1st to March 31st of the following year. Anyone who joins after October 1st will be considered paid through the following membership year. Ownership of a Cadillac or LaSalle is not required.

Should you have any questions, feel free to contact one of the board members or myself. Thank you for visiting our website. We hope to see you at one of our upcoming events soon!
