I'm liking that idea.. pics of the cars with nothing but mountains for a backdrop.

Too many cars is NOT an addiction..

I'm down to 2 W123's.. Wonder what's next?

Heres a shot of the two lots on the mountain, the second one might be better suited for us, more space and not usually a whole lot of cars. Plus its on the side of the mt with the stone steps to the top so it will be easier if anyone wants to climb to the top.
I like that. Never been to Sugarloaf yet. The 2nd one looks good to me.

It might rain that day. Will there be a rain date?

Ok guys this is evolving a bit since most of it is being coordinated over at *****************, so I'll try and keep you up to date on the specifics:

Meet 10am at Sugarloaf mountain
around noon, we will caravan over to mbshop and benzworld member "Powerpig"s home in Sterling, Virginia where he has a wide variety of foods prepared for everyone.

The Virginia part is kind of boring.

Right now they're calling for a few showers with 30% chance of precip. We've done freezing cold and pouring rain GTG's before with success, so I'm not too worried at this point. If the forecast changes for the worse, we'll look into a rain date.

Hey John.

This is my first get together. Is there anything that I have to pay? Maybe for the food. Do I have to be with the caravan or can I just come to Sugarloaf MT? What happens when everybody is at Sugarloaf? Do everybody just talk about their cars any mechanical problems and just meet everybody there?

Everyone pretty much just meets everyone else and geeks out over each others cars. No pay required, although if you would like to bring some food, you are more then welcome, but whenever Powerpig cooks, there's usually tons left over.

Here's some photos from previous ones our area group has had:
