Actually I like them all. If I had my "druthers", I would do one a month until I have been everywhere, and done everything. We all know that that is not possible. My brother (IMDJI) talked about going to the Peterson Museum, or maybe the Justice Brothers Museum and then to Irwindale Speedway again. Actually, he is the real organizer. He did the Route 66 and Speedway Cruise all by himself (including the pre-run of both ends), so he is the expert IMO. I just want to get some ideas to throw at him so he can plan a great run (with or without my help).

GTG

Okay, that being said, how about a first unofficial get together here in SD N. County. More of a meet and greet so that folks can get to know each other before doing a run in the future. Truth be told, I would love to have a monthly thing for folks with older cars to get together in the N. County. (N. County seems to get treated like the red headed step-child and it seems like a good time to put an end to this). So how about a Coffee & Donuts meet someplace on Saturday the 27 of Feb? Is that enought time to let folks out there know?

I personally have other plans that day, but you should start another thread and make it happen. I think just a meet and greet would be a good thing.

Rollguy,
Thanks for getting things started. I think your idea of a monthly GTG drive is awesome! Sorry to hear that you can't make the 27th. For sure just a date, not set in stone. Maybe March 6,7,13,14 would work for you. I'm sure everybody would love to see your veggie Benz's. Per your request, I will start another post to get something started for the end of the month or first weekend in March for a meet and greet. (I think it would be a good thing as well)
Please count me in for whatever event you get going.

Michael

Sound like fun again.

Can't wait to see Jim B put another 1,000 miles on his 560.

I will keep checking back here. I live in Palmdale / Antelope Valley / High Desert.

Willing to drive as far as Temecula / North San Diego.

I like the South of L. A. , north of S. D. idea.

The most recent GTG's have been open to any MB. The first one I went to was only for Diesels (mostly 123's), but the ones after were open to all. My brother and I have put on a few, and I/we believe that they should not be for Diesels only. I think they are more fun when there is a wide variety of 'Benzs there. I would like to see more newer and older cars at the GTG's.

I'd love to see a bunch of the older vintage cars personally.

How about something south of LA but north of SD? Or East of both? Maybe joshua tree, temecula, or cleveland national?
South of LA and North of SD sounds like Orange County

My 72 gets 15mpg at best but I'm willing to show her off with all her daily driver blemishes, if available.

There's a place called "Beach Burger" on Beach Blvd in Huntington Beach. They have certain days where VW's gather, sportbikes, hotrods, ect. The menu has a good variety and it's location is very nice because the PCH around here is very nice (especially coming from South OC up to HB).

There's also
http://www.friscos.com/
(City of Industry Waitresses are usually cute and between 18-22 years old )

Downey, CA has a few classic car get-together/car show/ diner type events (weekly) but its been a while and getting to / from there is a bit of a pain (without the young, cute, short skirt wearing waitresses to make it worthwhile)

Post Places To Eat

I'd love it if you could assemble one post with these and other places to drive to , I'll copy it and print it out , Spring has sprung so it's that time again...

Agreed , open events tend to be more fun right until the high dollar newer cars that don't ever drive anywhere begin to show up . that always kills off any event .
