Oh man - I just saw this post. I live in the area. I just got a 1985 230e euro spec with a 4 speed manual. It is a TX car. I don't know a lot about it (I may be in over my head) and would love to meet up with anyone in the KOP/Exton/West Chester/Chester Springs area.
Thanks -

10th Annual Southeast PA Benzfest
Saturday, August 19, 2017 - 11am until ?

We can start at 11am and go until whenever.

I'll do Burgers, Smoked Chicken Breast, Smoked Brats, Roasted Veggies, Quinoa Salad, and beverages including some home brew, soda, and water.

We'll have 5 categories of prizes again and Donkey Punch will be providing live music!

I live about 1 mile from the Montgomery Mall to give you an idea of where I am. I'm between Allentown and Philadelphia. I'll give my address via PM to everyone that will be coming.

Let's start getting a head count so I can plan the food accordingly.

Any food or drink that you bring to add to our spread is appreciated!


Anyone that still needs the address, send me a PM and I'll get right back to you.

The Mistress and I will be there in the CLS, unless I find the right deal on a GTS before then. Can't wait to see everybody again! Hopefully, we'll have good weather this year.

Had a bad feeling this would end up on the day I'm in Cleveland, and alas, it did. Will be the first one I'll miss in nine years. Not sure Bodhi will even be done by then anyway, seems to be the eternal project!

I'll be there. Was scared for a moment as our 10th wedding anniversary vacation was in the beginning of August, the week prior actually.

I've never been to a Benz get-together. Is it static admiration for our cars or can we do a fun road loop or even better some tire shredding?

I wouldn't expect any tire shredding at Chads. If you look at the pictures of this get together from prior years (this thread contains several years) you'll get a feeling for the atmosphere. Show up, park, maybe lift your hood and then walk around, eating and chatting. You'll meet folks from all over, swap/buy a few parts and eat great food. It's a few hours of driving for me but I usually stay at least 3 hours or longer if I don't have anything I have to get back for.

Love the caps! I've been admittedly silent with rsvp this year, it's been in the air. A family baby is due (ironically i had to miss the picnic for that wedding a couple years ago) and aside from that I'll be traveling back from Florida on work either that day or the day before. Never stops...always a good time always the worst weekend lol
