That weekend looks ok to me. What, besides gathering and showing off cars, is the idea? Is there a shop or part suppliers locally who are interested? I know the local MBenz car club also meets regularly.

I am in Longwood, and a short hop to anywhere in Central Fla.

Count me in! I guess I better do a good job washing the car beforehand !

I have been in the process of planning gtg in central Fl. for a while. I am going to invite the guys form some other forums, www.benzsport.com, and the MBforum.org (or something like that).
However the weekend of the 23 is not good for me I am going to a autocross put on by the Tampa Bay section of MBCA (the STAR mag). I would like to do it either a week or two after the superbowl.
I have been looking at places to have the gtg and I have found 2 good candidates. An empty parking lot on the corner of Alafaya, and University. Or there is a closed Builders Square on 50 (Colonial).
I thought we could meet on Friday and go to the drags, however I know some people can not make a meet then because they work. We could have some people meet at the drags on Friday and have a parking lot gtg on Sat.
Anoter option would be to have small gtg in the Outdoor mall on Alafaya. The fist Sat. of every month there is a small car show in the parking lot. It would be cool to show all our mercedes off.
Let me know what you guys think, dont be afraid to email me.
Subman

If anyone is interested in the autocross, you can email Scott at suits@ij.net(this is not my email but the organizer of the autocross) let me know if you go.

Can the "new guy" come too?

Hi guys and gals,

Just registered, and I haven't had time to take a good look around yet, but from what I've seen so far, this looks like a really great forum (must be brain-dead not to have gotten here sooner!?).

Anyway, thanks go out to Peter (ebennz) for the invite over.

I live in S. Florida, but I'm in O-Town a couple times a month on business. Even if I'm not scheduled to be up in Orlando on the day of the meet ... its only a 3 hour drive anyway (well, all right, maybe only 1 hour using the AMG).

I've been trying to get a 'Florida' meet together for a while now. Orlando seems like the most 'central' place to hold it.

An idea:

Lots of meets have taken place in California with members of MBworld.org. They usually get a local MB dealership to sponsor the meet, and give test-drives of new models to the people who show up (just a thought ... a pitcher of beer and a bucket of wings at Hooter's would be fine with me too!)

Only thing is ... I can't make it the last week of February. How definate is the date? A run to Daytona to catch the spring break hotties would be nice too!

Love to make it if I can ...

Benzies Meet in Orlando!

As for the meet:
There is a great park off of Aloma close to Rollins where the Brits met last year for a show off gathering.
Let's do the same.
Propose these dates:
weekend of the 16th or 23rd Feb!

Just bought a 97 E420 and 98 BMW 740il. The benz runs like the wind; bimmer is stodgy but soaks up the road better.

Would like to see and hear from all Benz owners in the area about the old and the new!

Best,
John Henry
