I had a pic of Tab's Porsche, but heck if I know what happened to it. Sorry about that......
Looks in the pic like someone's checking out Al's rear end!

It was good meeting everyone. I've had a lot of thoughts about buying Land, getting a 420SEL and dropping a V8 SBC in my w108.

With all the talk of A/C, I thought I would post some information on some of the topics that we discussed.

Here is a link to getting R406a (R12 replacement)

http://www.autofrost.com/x3feat.html

Some information on the camping A/C unit that we discussed.

http://www.kooleraireac.com/Igloo_Coolers.htm (for $40, someone has to try this!).

Finally, here is the Rover

Snakes Alive!

I was about 5 minutes from being home when I looked down by the seat controls and saw that plastic snake's head popping up.

Dang it guys - I could have had a wreck

So I guess I have the gag plastic snake - I'll have to be sure to bring it to the next GTG so we can be sure to scare someone else.

Now how on earth did that thing crawl from my car to yours?? Must have been because it was so close......
Believe me, it was better than the ones on the front porch yesterday!!

Yeah that gash in the front bumper cover is a cloud, too.

Here's one more of the W108:


And one more of Tab's Porsche:


Hope to see all you guys and gals again soon. Speaking of which, don't forget about the All British/European Car Day at White Rock Lake on June 3rd!

I'll be at the all British and European, maybe with my MGB if I can get the engine rebuilt in time.

Else, it will be the W108 again.
