Unhappy No Events ?

I remember we used to have regular So. California Meet & Greets .

Last week I spent four days driving the Desert back roads from the Mexican border to Nevada including Joshua Tree and Death Valley National Parks amongst others, drove from 220' below sea level to over 4,000' over several mountain passes, all in my 1982 240D with 365,000 + miles on it and loving every minute in spite of the broken lower spring box in the driver's chair .

I thought old Mercedes' were "Enthusiasts" cars.......

I cannot be the only one who drives one daily in all weather......

A few classic Mercedes will be getting together at Super Car Sunday, at the Westfield Promenade in Woodland Hills on May 6.

Thumbs up Super Bowel Sunday Meetup

Thanx ! .

I just missed a small gathering of the faithful last weekend, I was in Death Valley, in an old Mercedes Diesel of course....

I'll try to find out where that mall is and make it .

You're welcome! Where are you in SoCal? There's lots of weekly gatherings (not specifically MB but you'll see some there) all around the LA, OC, IE areas.

Saying there's lots doesn't help if no one knows they're happening .

I'm off to Phoenix this Friday .

Google "cars and coffee" in your area and I'm sure you'll find some which happen every Saturday morning, for the most part. I don't know where in SoCal you are so I can't tell about any of the ones I've been to.
