Southern California Group

Can anybody direct me to some Southern California MB Diesel aficionados in my region. Anyone from the Orange County, San Diego or LA County members of this forum. I wanted to bounce off some ideas and maybe meet just to talk shop. Thanks.

I am coming down to goof around and meet some girls this weekend. In Pasadena


Just because I won't be driving a Mercedes Diesel doesn't mean I don't like them. I really do.

I'm in Leona Valley near Palmdale in Northern LA County. Have gotten together with some at MR MB's shop In November last year.

I was thinking about maybe a So Cal Drive, not just diesels, but all Classic's maybe sart off in Valencia at Valencia MB and drive Bouquet Canyon(28 Miles) to Elizabeth Lake Road. Maybe drive into Leona Valeey to Casa Guerrites(sic) for lunch, then ELR to the 14, the 14 to Angeles Forest Hwy to Angeles Crest(HWY 2) then down into Flint Ridge LaCanada and then disperse or???
