That's a good strategy to use.
One that usually works is "there's an Outlet you can shop at while I'm doing something else".

That does not sound like a compromise.

That’s probably better than bringing up “Deliverance”

There are plenty of Outlet malls around LOL. They’re probably all the same anyways.

John are you going to stick around for Caffeine and Octane on Sunday? If you do you might want to contact them, they always have an area set aside in the main section for special cars. Your R107 with the V12 should qualify.
I will be there.

Who do I contact?

You only missed where the Mercedes people park if they show up. I didn’t sign up for that either. That is the regular Mercedes club and they gave them a few spaces. The section for your car I was talking about is the section in the primary parking area that is reserved for special/unusual cars. That is organized by Caffeine and Octane and has nothing to do with the MB club. Call the phone number I posted.
