Details.......

OK Benz enthusiasts, most of the details have been worked out.
Please see post #1 for the details.
I will also add a map of the route in a few days.
I will also start a separate "Roll Call" thread, so look for that as well.

20 days left!.......Dennis

Roll call thread.......

The ROLL CALL thread can be found here.

I'd like the ROLL CALL thread to be the ROLL CALL ONLY.


If you have any questions or comments, please use the main thread found here.

I'd like to make a suggestion that we push back the meeting time an hour to 8:30 and depart at 9:00.

Many of us have an hour drive or longer, and that is awfully early to get up on a Saturday morning.

UPDATE: We have the rare opportunity to visit an additional OUTSTANDING collection after the Nix collection. I just got confirmation today, and it is all set up. This collection is like nothing you have ever seen before, and likely never again. It too is a surprise, and you will NOT want to miss it. It will blow your mind!! Plan on spending most of the afternoon (you will need it) to check out these collections. It is less than a mile from the Nix collection.

How does the new map differ from the old one?

It looks the same.

I think I'll meet you guys at the first stop at the Starbucks after you leave Crystal Cove. I'll be there between 8:15 and 8:30.

Look for the fire engine red 280SE 4.5 with new personalized license plates that read "1 RD BRRN".

Suginami, I keep reading about your Red Baron in post's and am really looking forward to seeing it. Sounds like a beautiful car. You've inspired me to drive my W108 car as well. I'll watch for you. I'll be driving the W108 Binz Limo.

Michael

You have a 108 Benz limo? Eeeeeexcellent.

I filled up the tank to the Red Baron this afternoon, so she's gassed up and ready to go.

I'll shine her down and clean the glass tonight.

Late update with directions.......

Attached is a PDF with the directions for the cruise- Do not rely on just the Google Map, only for general direction. I will have these directions printed and pass them out before we begin.

Please arrive @ Starbucks early for visiting with the other drivers, but be ready to leave promptly at 8:00. Have fuel in the car and some water and snacks - we won't arrive at B.J.'s until 1:00, 12:30 at the earliest.

We have a number of stops along the way for folks to catch up. The stop in the middle is at Angels Gate Park/Ft McArthur military museum, as well as the Korean Friendship Bell. We will spend 1/2 hour there to see the museum.

Some drivers will join the cruise along the way. If you wish to know where we are, you can reach me on my cell phone (626) 824-1726 for updates.

We should have a pretty good turn out (I'm guessing 15-18 cars).

Please reserve time in the afternoon to see the 2 Private Collections that Rich has arranged for us to see. I know you will not be disappointed.

See you at Starbucks in the morning.......Dennis
