I sent Sam Kemper (MBCA club organizer) an email to check if he still has passes.

My guess is he will have plenty of passes based on the weather no shows.

So far the weather has held up. Drove down to Athens Friday night 6 hr top down. Drove from Athens to the event in Crawfordsville 1 1/4hr top down. Drove from Crawfordsville to Atlanta Top up but we probably could have had them down. Peach Tree did an excellent job. About 15 107's showed up. Cant post any pics until I get back, but I will get some up here.

Tomorrow off to Coffey and Octain in the AM. Hopefully the the weather clears in the erly AM.

Jeff and Lucie (owners of a 85 380 SL), John and I met at the MB dealer in Athens GA at around 8:30AM. From there we took a leisurely 50 mile drive through the countryside to Crawfordville, GA, the birthplace of the Vice President of the Confederate States of America. Almost everybody that signed up showed and we lined the cars up next to the Crawfordville courthouse. Weather was perfect most of the time, I encountered some rain on the way home.
There was quite a variety of R107’s, most interesting ones were Johns V12 SL and a gold colored 1986 500SL AMG with a nice set of Lorinser LO wheels.

Glad to see that everyone, and your 107s made it there, and back in one piece. Your pics are appreciated too, RLT61. It looks like the weather cooperated after all. It's neat seeing a number of 107s together. The highway pic is one of my favorites.
