Arrow Fourth Texas Mercedes-Benz Get Together-Saturday, June 27, 2009

The FOURTH Texas Mercedes-Benz Get Together is coming soon! Caravans leaving from Austin, the DFW Metroplex, and Houston will once again converge upon the midway point between Houston and Dallas on I-45 known as Centerville on Saturday, June 27, 2009 for a day filled with automotive fun! Let's get as many cars and people as we can to come to the meet and show them how we do meets down here in Texas, . It doesn't matter what kind of Mercedes-Benz you have, old, new, pristine, ragged, diesel, gas, Sprinter or whatever, we want YOU to attend so that we can have a diverse cross-section of cars and enthusiasts to enjoy the day. Got family members, friends, or neighbors who drive Mercedes-Benzes? Tell them to come on out! Caravans departing from each city will depart at a time that gives them a 12:00 Noon arrival time in Centerville. We will have reserved parking and a BBQ lunch in a room reserved just for us at the world famous Woody's Smokehouse on the NORTHBOUND side of I-45. After everyone has eaten, we'll head 4 miles south of town on old Highway 75 to Fort Boggy State Park for the Show and Shine! Unlike previous years, there is no longer an admission cost for entry into the state park. (added 5/7/09) We will hand out awards based on People's Choice for best Vintage Model (Pre 1980), Best 1980s Model, Best 1990s Model, and best 2000-present Model. Bring the camera, PLENTY of water and some sunscreen to the park because it WILL be hot, not as hot as the July meets, but still hot. Come on and have some fun with fellow "BenzNuts".

Just might!

You know, if I can afford it. I might actually try and make this! I've been dying to go over to Texas to chill in San Antonio, and hey, this can be an awesome GTG to go to if i'm in Texas!

I'll keep you updated!

I will of course be cruising down with the DFW convoy. One of my most favorite parts of one of my most favorite events.
Now, which car to bring........

How about the Batmobile? As long as your A/C is working fine, and you have tint, the black in the summertime shouldn't be too bad.

I'm leaning towards that. The AC seems to work really well from what I can tell, much better than the W123 chassis. My only conflict is the wagon population is usually under-represented, but I guess the OM606.910 W124 is represented even less.
Well, it doesn't matter. The day is awesome, and I'm there to see MB buddies and their rides anyway. I know what mine look like......

My goal is to bring a newly painted trigger down to the GTG, but if that falls through, I guess Ol' Turbo could hold its own.

I will load up the wifey in the coupe and head to Centerville - its on the calendar. I tried to talk her into driving the 300E to follow me, but that didn't go over so well so I'm only bringing one!
