G2g?

What kind of event is this (other than a Mercedes gathering), and where is it held at?

I have never attended a Mercedes enthusiast GTG so I'm up for it. It seems like the Midwest can never organize anything. Come on people! We can't let the east and west coast guys have all the fun!

I have two options for you:

1.) The Chicagoland MB Club is holding a Concours of Mercedes at the Oak Brook Polo Club on Sep 9. Admission is $10.

2.) I'm a moderator on a 190E-specific site, and we've planned a GTG for Sep. 16th. Exact location is yet to be determined, but will probably be somewhere around Naperville or Downer's Grove. All would be welcome.

I don't visit this site often (though I should), but I'll try to update you when final arrangements are made for the 16th. If I forget, somebody give me a nudge at prime16-at-190revolution.net.

No kidding.

I could get down to Chicago in about 7 hours. Have an old college buddy to stay with and make it into a long weekend.


We should get something together along the 190 group. Post on other forums, plenty of MB'ers in the area.

If you can come down from twin cities, I guess I can go. The problem is which car to drive?

The one pictured below I drove to the get together last year.

Take the 6.9!

When "Prime-16" knows the location/time, maybe the mod can create a sticky. Also, post on some the other Merc forums.

I emailed Prime, but it bounced back. MTI knows him, so I'll let him know...

I'd head down Friday early and leave Sunday after the gtg. Besides Kuan, I don't know of any other Minnesota MB'ers. There are a handful in WI.

The 6.9 is a year away from being able to be taken anywhere!

You can see its progress

The 73 280CE will be the next to go in my garage, then the 78 F150.
