Hi Folks,

I've been busy and away from these boards for quite a while (that means no issues with the SDL, in fact, it's never run better ) and I'm very disappointed that I won't be able to make the GTG this weekend. I will be driving Smokey down to Berkeley for the Cal - UCLA game Saturday night, so I'll have to catch the next one.

GO BEARS!!!

I already have a set of rOnals but I wouldn't be suprised if another member is interested in them. Just the tires alone make the price worth it and I agree, they look great on w123's.

Goldenbear, where are you driving to Berkely from? We are meeting at 12 which I would assume (but don't really know) is before kickoff so if you were going through sacramento you could always stop by. If not we'll have to wait till the next one.

I'll try to assemble a roster later this evening, I'm still getting mad at my paint and I needed a break.

I reside in the Fair Oaks area. I'll be leaving early for a family GTG before the game, so I need to be in Berkeley by 11am. Had I perused this board a month or so ago I could have fit it in...BUMMER!

My friend might be able to join along if he can get his bumper fixed today. He has a 81 SD. But if he cant get it fixed hell just tag along with me and see the other cars.

Is everyone still In?

I'm hoping to make it, however the insurance company closed before I could get the call in. So the 280 SEL will be a no show. Hopefully the 300 need another run if I can get out of the house. Lot's of upkeep on the grand kids here.

Got all my trim on. The car gets another quick wash before I leave. My buddy may be able to make it as well. Almost there...

GREAT TIME HAD at the Sacramento meet today

The Sacramento GTG at the Towe automuseum was a FANTASTIC success!

Thanks ESPECIALLY to Justin, Zack, Nate especially who really pushed to make it come together!! 2 1/2 hours of chatting and tire kicking then lunch at Tower Cafe for more chatting, then the locals went to a pick n pull party.
A fine day!!

There were SO many cars there I did not even get to see them all!!

I'm sorry I did not get to meet and talk to everyone!

Nate - Your 300D is without doubt CONCOURS!! Looks even better than in your sig. Truly, in burgundy, it looks showroom new, interior, paint and engine compartment. I have never seen one that beautiful. What a gem!

SirNik - Great story about your '84 SD! You need to tell it here with pictures!
Can people picture a custom exhaust made from cyclone fence pipes?? Incredible job

Zack, was wonderful to meet you and inspect your euro 123D 4 speed. Great find! and thanks for the welcome

Garrett from benzworld with his cool euro 300D, a beautiful car. Great to talk to you and hear about the unique euro features on it and your trip to Germany that included parts hunting there

Networkboy, Great sharing speeding and ticket stories with you at lunch

Jeremy5848, Likewise, great to meet you and hear of your N. African and Euro adventures! You came a long way

GreasyBenz, Hey Ruben, your paint job looks AWESOME, I saw the pictures but couldn't believe the car in person. Debadged it looks really mean. And wow, for a diesel it really HAULS A$$ from the stoplights LOL Hope your trip back to the bay area went well!!

Dieselchatter, With the mint black 190, Hope you enjoyed the meet - You drove all the way up from ONTARIO, in Southern California, just to be at the meet, hope you enjoyed the trip and back today as much as I did!

To those I met and didn't mention, THANKS for being part of this, and everyone else, THANKS for coming, these gtgs are REALLY FUN!!

Let's see some more pictures put up. This was G R E A T!!!

Jim

As everyone has said today was awesome. Lots of really cool people, cool cars and a great time had by all. I sure hope everyone who went had a good time and for those that missed out, we will have to see you next time. I took 150-200 pictures + some video so I'll get it uploaded as soon as I have the time.
