Yeah, identify the people who attended by their user name, front row and back row, left to right.

It would be great to put a face to the name.

Besides, I want to see what a real red neck looks like. :p

Front row, left of center with blue pull over shirt is Donnie, behind him with blue button down shirt is Cap'n, mikemover is right behind Cap'n and to Cap'ns left, kneeling is yours truely, that's ck42 over Mikes right shoulder. Tobias is to Donnies right. Those German beers prevented me from remembering everyone elses name. That is Bill standing all the way on the left and el pres kneeling all the way to the right.

Looks like y'all had a hell of a turnout. Wish I could have been there. What's the story on the silver 108/109 in the bay, belong to one of the attendee's or a customer? Would love to see more of it. I wonder if having all the cars there for the GTG will have an added benny of attracting more customers???? "Must be a dang good shop Mildred, you should have seen the place last weekend, cars wall to wall, but all serviced by 4PM".

Alan, that 560 sure does stand out in the crowd. The Euros look great on it.

You ALMOST got 'em all right, but actually that's me in the brown leather lacket next to Cardude and ck42:p and I had a ball (not just my head) talking shop with you guys! I'd work at MB Autowerks for nothing if I could just put a bed in that service area-I'd never leave that place and would have plenty of room for all of my babies to hibernate.

I actually just got a chance to see the pics and they're indicative of how great a turnout it was, thanks to Donnie,Lee,Bill and his wonderful wife and the MBA crew and El Presidente (by the way I noticed you wrote in my contact book that you're in Woodstock--I'm right in Kennesaw off of Wade Green so maybe we can do 3 dollar or something and thanks for the directions info on such short notice!)

Wow...I actually saw my baby in the pictures (of course mine was facing the opposite direction because I was showing some of the guys how I dressed up my engine and compartment. I can't believe I got a "wow" out of Donnie when he saw it so that is one of the ultimate compliments considering what he's done to that awesome 190!!! Dang that thing sounded good when he pulled up after me for dinner! Thanks for the compliment Mike T ( I almost forgot that you saw the 560 when you came down) and yes the euros have pretty much gotten the 560 many more compliments.

I wish I could have video taped the caravan from Autowerks to the resturant...people waiting to turn were just in awe when they saw all those benzes spanning over 20 years cruising the road together-it would have been more than twice that if we ALL rode at the same time but I'm sure the other half got the same stares. We even briefly opened them up (when we passed the place and had to U turn in the middle of the road to go back-Did you guys do that on purpose?) We definately have to do it again and it was a pleasure meeting everyone and putting faces and personalities with the "handles" we go by on the forum! Cheers everyone (thanks for your buddy's # too Mikemover!).

Alan

Alan, sorry about the mix-up. I've edited the post above to correct for my misdeeds

I'm in 'Woodstock', but about a mile from Roswell (Hwy 140) in the Crabapple area....other end of the county. But, yes, I'll head over your way sometime or better yet we could all meet at Andretti for a little racing competition! Perhaps at the next GTG.

Steve
