I had hosted a Tech Session a long while ago.
I can provide Technical Assistance to C-Class Owners.
Tech Sessions I am used to attending provide a place to make small repairs but this is a Public Park and that is Verbotten.
But I can see no problem with changing out Air Filters, Lights, Power chips etc.

PM me if you need help or assistance.

I know we could pull the motor out of a car in a park. But some problems can be solved with a adjustment or just by using a few screwdrivers or wrenches.

Its mostly older cars, like W123's, W126's, R107's. No powerchips in these. Im not saying that newer cars aren't welcome im just saying last time there were alot of older MB's with some newer MB's mixed in.

I'm thinking of attending... hope it's worthwhile especially for us more than 100+ miles away. Any suggestions? agendas? A big turnout would be great! I used to attend the Northeast GTG's with my euro w123 300TD in PA and MD when I lived up there in 2005. Good times, lots of good cars, good people too...

I replied to your PM on shopforum. We expect upwards of 30 cars, trust me dude, it won't be a waist of time. Its over a 100 mile drive for me.

Today's Meet & Greet was great.
It was a busy day for me because 2 hours earlier I was in the monthly Lake Mary Euro Meet and there were easily 80+ Cars there, Italian, German, British, American.
Our M&G at Downey Park was better than I anticipated. We had great weather and a darn good crowd.
Strange enough, I was the sole rep: for the C230 Kompressor!!
That's ok. Seeing the old Diesels was well worth it!

I look forward to our next Meet & Greet!

tschuss,

I live in a subdivision and should be able to have access to allow cars to park on the grass behind my house ( my house is located behind the park). I have a good sized back yard for hanging out and grilling, wifi for shopforum access. Some tools.

Perhaps do some form of quick lunch, pizza or hams and hots and caravan after to a local place for dinner.( week before this I have my Delorean Club Tech day that I am planning and coordinating as well!)

Tentative date is September 27th, 2008. A Saturday. I still need to get the go ahead to have it here from my mom as well as the HOA prez to use the park for cars to park on the grass behind my house.


Those interested add your name to the list and spread the word to everyone else on the forum... I am always trying to outdo the last gtg. Plus I can have my personal mechanic come out as well for inspections and any questions you have. Everyone remembers Pierre
