Arrow Houston, TX Area Winter 2009 GTG, Sat. Jan 31, 2009

Houston, lets have a meet! Saturday, Jan 31, 2009. 4pm at Prince's Diner, 11460 Fuqua St. Houston, TX 77089. Nothing formal, lets just have some burgers, fill the lot with good looking cars, and drool over each others rides. Come one, come all, whether old, new, diesel, gas, AMG or whatever, we don't care, we just want you there.

Dude...sweet

I'm there! But... Why not diesel only and old school only? And how's about a downtown spot in the future? I have a perfect spot... Lotsa parking, great view, pizza... Think about it?

We will allow the random gasser into our midst, especially as many folks have both. We will of course look down our noses with pity and disdain, but they are welcome!
Some of the gasser versions of our cars are the nicest on the forum. [Mercy, etc......] Why would we want to exclude them?

I think I might drop in. I no longer own a w123 diesel, so I hope to see some good ones there. I hope to see more diesels as well. Diesels rule this board. Diesel Discussion has the most posts and activity on this board, so we should represent ourselves.

+1 on inviting everyone.

Its nice to see a W123 240D parked next to a Kleeman E55. Its the 3 pointed star that brings us together.

Over a span of nearly 5 years, I've been holding these get togethers for all MB owners, and they LOVE it. It's all about the love of the marque. Why mess with a winning formula?
