Is there still time to sign up for the shindig? I would probably bring my better half along!

Add to that...G-Benz and family (that makes three).

I will be 43 the day after, so I thought it would be a good way to celebrate my upcoming birthday!

My wife will accompany me reluctantly, as she has no interest listening to a bunch of guys discussing and viewing MBs all day long!:p

She also hates to drive (why did she get the SL?), so I will probably show up in the ML.

Taking my wife to this shindig will probably cost me...like having to help my wife host some cookware party or something...

Anyway, I'm looking forward to putting some faces with these names in the forum!

Is It TOO LATE?

New member here, Mike and Cathy from LakeHills, TX (SA area). Is it too late for us to come and meet people? We have two 240D's (74 & 79) and my 190D (85)

STYLED STEEL WHEELS

OK, So they won't fit a Mercedes.

We have 3 pairs of steel wagon wheels, leftover from an estate sale. Might be good for a landscaping project, like alongside your driveway, etc.

1 set is 3 foot diameter, second set is 3 1/2 foot diameter, 3rd set are 3 1/2 foot doolies.

Can deliver to the TX diesel GTG. Sell for $100 a pair.

Sorry for the OT topic, but figured I could reach some Texans who know what these things are.

Looking forward to seeing Y'all at the GTG.

P.S. Also have 400 teakettles, but that's another story.

No, it is not too late. Come on up, and enjoy the party.

Bill,

Don't give up on us now! This is a push, pull or drag event!

Has anyone looked at the long term weather forecast to start getting an idea what we will be faced with? I was not in favor of November from the get-go. I remember too many deer season opening days that were less than comfortable. I sure hope it works out okay.

I wonder just how inviting the weather will be for ice cream.

I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone. I'm now debating whether to bring my new car or my 300E. The 300E has turned into my work car with a cracked windshield and less than pretty paint, not to mention minor finish imperfections from hitting deer and small animals. I will be kind of ashamed to let anyone see it. But, barring serious emergency, I will see everyone on Sunday.

Have a great day,

Unhappy Drat! Drat! Drat!

With the rain we've had in the last few weeks, my "open" Sunday just got filled with make-up Soccer games, clinics, church practice, and other assorted rescheduled events!!!

Dissapointing for me! I will be there in spirit though! Save a virtual burger for me!

Isn't it coincidence that as soon as I am planning on attending the shindig the alternator on my car starts giving me trouble. Well I finally got the new rebuilt alternator on tonight. I am carrying an extra fan belt because the one that is one there now almost got shredded by another same rebuilt alternator I put on yesterday.......long story but I'll tell it to all who want to listen on Sunday.....the saga of the rebuilt alternators (now on number 3 I think in two years).

Almost forgot to mention, I've already got all the plates, cups, forks, spoons, knives, napkins and small bowls.

Count me in!!! I'm bringing Blanche. May have to leave a little early for an event back in Dallas, but I'll be there!

Bill, I will contact you to see what I need to bring!

It looks like I will not be able to drive the 300SD.
It is in the shop getting the transmission adjusted (argh!)
And I have told the shop to take their time and get it right.
It is clunking on the downshift from 2nd to 1st.
Either way, I will be in a Benz, and we are looking forward to this.
I am hoping that we have some awesome weather.
I will be going to Sam's and getting a couple cases of drinks, so if anyone wants to request any kind of soda, now’s your chance.
