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.

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.

I plan on being there...in 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 not...it 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,

Thumbs up

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.

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.

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,

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

aldedmon,

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,

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.
