M.B.E.G. 2nd Annual "SoCal Summer Coastal Cruise" Saturday August 21st 2010

Mercedes Benz Enthusiasts Group presents
the 2nd Annual
"So Cal Summer Coastal Cruise"
Saturday August 21st 2010


If you attended our last cruise along the coast, you know we all had a great time, and this year we plan to step it up a notch or two.

The starting spot this year will be STARBUCKS COFFEE at Crystal Cove at 7:30 a.m.

We will leave promptly at 8:00 a.m. and drive North along the coast and end the cruise at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse in Woodland Hills.

Like last year, we will visit a "collection" (the "Nix collection") or two .

We will have a few stops along the way for drivers to catch up or join the cruise. Lunch will be the last stop before heading to see the "collection(s)".

As always, ALL Mercedes Benz automobiles are welcome, however we would like to see more older vintage Benz's on the cruise, so invite your friends.

Start waxing the old Benz and mark your calender for the third Saturday in August!!!

See you soon.......Dennis & Richard

Looks like I'll be free that Saturday.

It'll be a nice cruise to take my new '73 280SE 4.5 "The Red Baron".

Yes I will be there as well. I think I will bring the newest member of the fleet: 1985 Euro 280E (yes it's a GASSER, sorry).

Subscribed. Though I don't know if I can make it yet. May be able to meet in OC but the drive appears to be going the wrong direction as I'd be coming from San Diego.

Rich, I've been saving kitchen oil for you. Probably less than a gallon so far...not that it'd be much use for your new ride.

You should do what it takes to be there, as it will be awesome! You won't want to miss it.

Not much use for the new one, but I have 4 others that it will!

Last year's Coastal Meet/Drive was great! I will try and make it, as I will be in the process of moving, but it will give me a great opportunity see my dieselheads and escape the heat of Fresno!

Is this the car that had the "paint shaker" under the hood?

Yup, that's the one! She has gone to a good home and is getting a heart transplant... should have sold her for more than the $450, but was running out room and my neighbors were getting tired of the car parked in the driveway! Will be looking for another one or CD or SD in the fall.

Count me in! Should be great!

Rich, can't wait to see the gasser (welcome to the dark side). I'll also send this out to the N. County group.

Matt, this sounds great, you should plan on going.

I remember that car. It was in very very nice condition and would be a great ride with a new motor.

I was not able to go to the last coastal drive, do you have photos from that? What did you guys do? I went to the Route 66 drive and Irwindale Speedway laps which was great.
