Hey guys, I want to clarify something - We will be "showing" our cars, but it is definitely not like your typical car "show" where all the cars are pristine showroom condition. My 300D is far from being a show car. In the display area, you can park in the back if you like.
The concept is to show the folks that to be an enthusiast and be a part of our "group", you don't have to have a show car - if you own and drive a Mercedes Benz, you're in!
Like I always say, "Run what you brung".......Dennis

I'd rather have that than one of those ugly "sport" grills! I'd be interested in knowing what the route will be just in case any of us slow pokes get separated. The classic everone makes it through the 5 minute traffic light but me situation.

Yeah that was one of the problems I had before.

I found that separating in groups solves this problem...
