Curious when you all are getting together again. I'd like to meet local MB enthusiasts and possibly learn something in the process.

I just agreed to purchase my third W123. It has a few needs so the parts search begins.

I think Johnhef has abandoned us. He hasn't posted anything on this site for a long time.

alternative

An alternative might be a strippers weekend at Dee8go's new house. I'm closing on it on Friday . . . Of course, I don't have any old cars to strip, so we might have to settle for paying a stripper to come and entertain us.

Just a thought . . . .

My concern is if we park in your new neighborhood, will your new "friends" strip the cars for us.

I checked the demographics for that area and they were way below the national average for all kinds of crime. Car theft WAS a little on the high side, though. If you give the neighborhood youngsters some money, they'll be glad to watch your car for you, though.

In Body-more you have to give the youngsters some money AND the keys to keep an eye out for you.

Where did you buy that this would be a joke OR a concern even?

Anymore GTG of this sort in the works?
