No MB meet for me

So today is the Texas MB meet, and the only major thing preventing me from going was a sometimes dragging rear caliper. I ordered one from ******** 2 weeks ago. I came in last week ,and it was for the other side.
So I ordered one again on Monday via 2-day shipping. Well, Fedex delivered it, but not to me! So I call them Thursday evening and they are looking into it. Apparently the driver dropped it off at the wrong address.
They called Friday morning and said it's on a truck. It's now Saturday morning, and I still have not received it, so there is no way I can make the meet :-(

Sure you can! Fix all them Benz snobs! Rent a Prius and park it in the midst of them!

My Fiat 500 or 124 Spider would likely have a similar effect :-)

Which 500 do you have?

I've got a 72 500L. All 18 (or is it 17?) horsepower... I think I passed a cyclist once, but only because he was fixing a flat at the time...

I wish I knew, I have a couple of those calipers knocking around. Two W108's showed up. Both 6 cylinder cars.

Sorry, mine is a 2012 :-) I have to have something to balance out the w108's 14 mpg!
I learned to drive on a Fiat 126, which was basically a Fiat 500 with a bit larger engine, I hope that counts :-)

Dang, I should have thought about asking you...
