DC area classic mercedes diesel meetup

Hi Folks,

My apologies if this is the wrong forum to post this but I recently started a meetup group for old mercedes diesels. Just have one upcoming meetup planned at the end of may but it would be nice to meet other people who understand the appeal of these cars.

Very cool. W115 diesels are technically the only group that might focus in this specific forum. There are sedan forums here on Benzworld for each of the following:
- w116 (but also try w116.org)
- w123 (but also try peachparts)
- w126

In addition to the models mentioned in the link above, this vintage forum would cover the fintails, and pontons and even rarer predecessors that might fit well with your meet up.

There are also a lot of diesel conversions, in MB cars probably most notably in w108s. But MB diesels are very common in Jeeps and other non-MB cars. There may be a big market to tap there. Benzworld won't be the site for that type of stuff, but I'm sure you can find it.

But along the same lines, have you considered including the trucks? The Unimogs and stuff like that could really draw some attention. There are truck forums here on BW.
