wow, been a while since I dropped by, with work an all. Great to see so many folks in the bay area now. I would love to do this, Marin 1/20 sounds awesome!

Cheers,
Scott

'92 300SD Blk\Blk 140,000, almost finished re-installing a reworked head(some new valves, lifters, guides, seals...). I tested compression before we tore it down and it averged out at 450 psi in the wet test, I'm hoping that solves the rod bender issue for this engine. Wish me luck.... will there be an official date set for Marin?

Yes we need an official date for the marin meet. I would imagine a Saturday or Sunday might be the best for most of us here.

here are some dates I'll throw out on the table... (all weekends)

13th/14th
20/21st
27th/28th

Saturday the 13th is probably out for me; I have a meeting that morning. Could show up someplace in the afternoon but would prefer another day.

Good idea to have a prime date and a rain date.

Jeremy

Hi-
I was on the diesel forum and caught this NorCal thread from the corner of my eye! Are you taking any newcomers? I have a very light sch in late January. I will have another Mercedes by then as I am actively searching for either a mid 1980's 300 td, 240 D or a 180D right now. Just sold my 300 SD last week. Just too big for my lifestyle.
I am very excited because I went passenger on a Alfa Romeo tour (Veloce) convertible in Sept. around S Cruz mtns and it was scary and fun at the same time. Would like to do that again, in MBZ style!

Frankie

My dad said he wants to join this one for sure. My friend in his SD is still up in the air about it, he wants his car repainted before he goes so if its repainted he will join in as well.

EDIT: all the dates work for me as long as its kept to a weekend.

Hi greasybenz,
Did you just find out about this get together recently? I saw it last night.
You PM'd me a few months ago about questions I had about my 300 SD.
How is your Fatty wagon coming along in this cold weather? 35-40 deg!

I sold the 300 SD a couple weeks ago and am looking for a smaller diesel MBZ around the same year. Hope to see everyone in January!
Frankie
