Summer Central FL GTG/drive

Ive had a lot of interest in doing a summer GTG or drive down here in orlando. Is any one else interested??? I already know of a few people interested.

Im certain that our good buddy Pierre Hedary and some of his circle of vintage model customers will be down, as there always come out to the bi anual GTG's.

I have been given the idea of Celebration, FL, which I for one think is a great idea. I personaly have been there many times and its a really sweet setting for a picture shoot and dinner.

We could have a GTG at the park or do a drive from the beach in the Titusville area (Pierre's shop area & Easily Accessable from I-95) to Celebration for dinner, I think that would be an amazing afternoon.

Celebration is down by Disney World so there is plenty of lodging available and a weekend could be made of it if one wishes with the wife and kids.

Lets decide on a date and plans

Let me know if you are interested...

'79 280CE with 226,000 miles
'76 240D 4 speed with 190,000
'85 300D Turbo with 266,000 miles


GONE but not forgotten
'76 300D with 195,300 miles
"83 300D with 174,000 miles

depends on what the date is. I'll be there for the weekend (Fri-mond) of June 6th for another show. Is Celebration a good restaurant? Never been there. Also they just opened up a new restaurant called the T-rex restaurant or something and it's the same people that own the Rain Forest Cafe. I could totally give us a discount and get us a prompted seating time (i'm a member there), but it's a higher class restaurant (plates are 15-20) but that would be a cool place. I'm totally down for a cruise, I'm sick of the sitting in a parking lot (no offense) anyways...yeah...

Celebration would be a good place. It is close to Old Town where they have vintage and 'unique' auto shows quite often. I would go for Celebration. It would be nice if any one who have parts for MB to bring some along to sell or trade or even to give away just because you are a nice person. People who have special knowledge or skills regarding repairs, detailing etc could come prepared to share with other MB owners. Clean up the ride and bring on the shine. - Just a thought.
