Yes Warren, that is me with the 2009 Bentley.

I got REALLY late notice of this, from one of the sponsors of this charity event (lunchtime email, the day before, I am a favored customer at www.toplineautomobile.com near the SF Airport) so I couldn't find much time to properly notify other Mercedesshop friends about this.

I have a few more pic's I will try and upload to here.

Jim, thanks for posting those photos. Way back in 1968, when we lived in Hillsborough, there was a car show in Burlingame right at the base of the mountain, which must be the same show, and my father and I went to it. There were many nice cars there including some 300SL's, no pics though. He had his 220SEb 4 door then. Back then I went to Burlingame HS.

Matt, for shame!!! What a horrible thing to say to a personal friend of mine.

That is an outrageous racial insult, not funny at all; you should publicly apologize for saying that!!!!

How could you do such a thing after visiting him personally???!!
