Head count
Since I know more than three or four people are going to the TX diesel shindig, I'll post this as a new thread.

I need to get a head count of all of the people that are planning on attending at the Fall TX shindig.

Place: Cedar Hill State Park, Cedar Hill TX - "Small Pavillion"
Date: Sunday, November 17, 2002
Time: Place "officially" opens at 10:00 AM. I personally plan on being there earlier to get started on setup.

I will have signs that guide people to the spot - park permitting.

So far I have Larry, TXBill, and me.

I wanna take the place over and generate the same level of curiosity, if not more so, than last spring by passers by. :D

I am planning on being there, and helping in any way I can.

Looking forward to it.

Looking forward to meeting some fellow owners. that is If I can find time to repair my 300SD by then. Major body work is not in my line of work, but I will try.:rolleyes:

TCCBass 09-19-2002 12:07 PM

I plan on being one of the cars. HOPEFULLY I will get a chance to have the 300SD detailed and photograph it and have it SOLD before then. If will be a great chance to show it.

If so...I'll be there in a gas car...wishing for a diesel...

TCC Bass made me think about something. I will probably be in a gas car. I hope I don't get it keyed, or diesel fuel poured in the fuel tank!:(

Have a great day,

Diesel Power,

I plan on being there and may bring a guest. I'm looking forward to the second shindig.

Also, as last year, if there is any thing that needs to be supplied, let me know. Last year I brought the some ice and the utensils, cups and plates. If you'd like I can bring those.

'87 300SDL

Yes, as airfoil says, any supplies or anything that are needed, please let me know.

Have a great day,

My brother (from Fort Worth) is in town this weekend for a wedding and I'll find out if he plans to attend. I'll let y'all know as soon as I find out.

500E Gang are there
Albert , CY , Randall

LarryBible 09-20-2002 12:54 PM

Looks like business is picking up. With the 500E's there, does this mean we're having a burnout competition? If so, the diesels might lose that one.

Glad you're coming,

aldedmon 09-20-2002 01:10 PM

Traction Control
Hey Larry,
You know the Diesels might actually take the 500's in an all competition on this one. That blasted traction controls is worse than a set of leg irons:( . I for one have not dropped the 10 Large for the ASR defeat and probably wont be doing so anytime soon. Looking forward to seeing everyone soon

LarryBible 09-20-2002 05:02 PM


I will show my vast 500E ignorance here. Do you mean there is not a switch to disable the traction control system on these cars?

My C has ESP and there is a simple switch on the dash to disable it for those Sunday afternoon road races.

Looking forward to meeting you in November,

aldedmon 09-20-2002 06:11 PM

No Disconnect switch

I will be in Houston for the GTG. I will try my hardest to make it. I do not know the area at all but I am sure I can follow someone to the event. You can count me in.
