I plan on making it

If everything goes right, I'll bring the wife and kids. My mom said that She might go as well, she's got a 97 E300 D.....

ABSOLUTELY! Heck you dont need to bring the Benz to be there! Earlier this week I was thinking my Benz was going to be in the shop. I lucked out.

Come one come all! Bring the family. Real informal... jsut to get to know each other. Heck, nothing like standing in a parking lot looking at cars and talking.

Next one will be more organized!

Pictures

That was a great turnout and it was great to meet some other people. I can't wait to do it again.

Here are a couple pictures I took. I could not fit everyone in one photo so it is in two.

Also took a picture of all the rear ends for those that went to Golden Corall

Sorry the compressed pictures look so bad. I can't remember how to post them where they open up bigger.

WOW!! What a great event! Thank you to EVERYONE that showed up. What a great group of people, and 240Dizzle your kids are angels.

Lots of great ideas and sharing of what we are all doing to our cars.

We are going to try to do a beach event yet this summer, a fall mountain drive, a few breakfast get togethers (real informal) and maybe even a few "wrench it days" at my location.

I will get to pictures as soon as I can. My son Nate and I are off to go look at a SD for him :-D !!!

Oh And Sargent... thanks for the free go juice

Thank you NCBenz for getting this meeting together. Wife and I had a great trip up from Charlotte and enjoyed talking with everyone and seeing all the great cars. I really like the Blue Ridge Parkway Drive idea. The beach get together would also be fun. Thanks again.

I know for a fact my folks won't let me drive to the beach but I'm going to Appalachian this fall (first year in college, yay!) so I'll be free to do a mountain drive any time. Please let me know when that one is, I'd definitely like to go (if invited).

For the good of the trip though, depending on the mountains... I'll probably have to be courteous and let all the 240d's pass me on the way up

Looks like everybody had a good time. I wish I wasn't in tensioner rail hell today so I could've come.

Maybe next time!

Had a great time as well. A little sunburnt, but all is well. Took a slight detour through Durham on the way back, but we enjoyed the ride through the "scenic" part of town. If the quality of pics sucks, I need to figure out what site I have an account on and have pics posted on. I thought it was photobucket, but not sure. Anyway, here's some more.

Sorry about that. I saw you pull off there and I'm like: "crap..." Nice meeting you though and I still laugh to think you have a car named "Butterball"!
