It's that time again!!! :D

6th Annual Southeast PA Benzfest
Saturday, August 24, 2013 - 11am until ?

We can start at 11am and go until whenever.

I was considering getting the event catered since it gets bigger every year, but that isn't going to work. In order to have enough food throughout the day, it's like $28 per person. At a reasonable cost we'd only have deli food that would last about 2 hours.

I'm thinking I'll go with pulled pork or hamburgers, hotdogs, roasted veggies, and probably smoked chicken breasts again. I'll also get started on making the Tri-Star of home brews and we'll have sodas and bottled water as well.

It's more work but at least there will be food available ALL DAY not just for a two hour window. It's important to me to have food available the whole time since people come at different times and many stay into the wee hours and end up having two meals (plus snacking) while they're here. :)

Feel free to add to the menu with food, sides, or drink. Everything is appreciated but the most important thing is that we all get to see each other again, check out our cars, and meet some new faces in our awesome MB community.

Let's get a head count so I can plan for the food and drink.:thumbsup:

I live about 1 mile from the Montgomery Mall to give you an idea of where I am. I'm between Allentown and Philadelphia. I'll give my address via PM to everyone that will be coming.

If anyone is willing and able to donate some funds to help with the cost of this event, PM me for Paypal info or bring cash for the donation can at the GTG. It's NOT required, only a request to help reduce my costs and help me keep an awesome relationship with my wife. :thumbsup:



79 days to go!!! :D

Anyone that still needs the address, send me a PM and I'll get right back to you.

I just bottled the American Wheat, put the Chocolate Cream Stout in secondary, and the Presidential Honey Ale is in primary. The Tri-Star of Home Brews is coming along beautifully. :D

I finally should be able to make this one, Chad.

I just need to secure one day off at the beginning of my vacation to do it.

There might be some fellatio involved, but I'm not missing another Chad Extravaganza.

With catering at $ 28 per person I expect to be served by beautiful waitresses in frilly costume. BUT, I'll settle for Chad in shorts and his fabulous food and beer and a contribution to the donation can.

Next time for sure

I'm in! (If I'm invited.)

I want to clean the tank strainer on the SLC Convertible but don't know when I'm going to get a 44mm socket. So I shouldn't assume I will have that back together before the GTG. I assume people would prefer to see that over my 280slc with the huge rust holes in the floor and trunk spare tire well. So we will see what I end up driving.

If it doesn't get back together I'll pull it with mine. I'm in with my 560.

I put this on the PP thread as well (with Chad's blessing).

I'm still selling rebuilt w123/w126 steering boxes.

I'll plan on bringing at least two w126 boxes and hopefully 2 w123 boxes. They are fully disassembled, cleaned, and then assembled and adjusted to MBZ specs. I've been painting them with black chassis paint.

Price is $135 +$45 core.

If you bring me an old one that I can rebuild. (i.e. no rusty junk, no silicone sealant) then no core charge. I can also refund the core charge through Paypal if you decide to ship me a core later.

Each box is warrantied for 1.5 years for leaks or any internal faults.

I can also do some boxes for w115/w116/r107, but I may not have a core for them.

Only if you bring pictures of your wheel collection.
There's not that much to picture, just:
- Four 8x16 et11 ats AMG replicas
- Four 8x16 et11 rial weaves
- Four 8x16 et11 bbs rs009
- Four 8x16 et11 momo pentas
- Four 7x16 et23 bbs ra waiting on Kevin Kemper to tell me to send them and complete payment
- two project (unassembled) bbs rs009 and two custom project 8x16 et37 1" lip wheels to use w spacers for a 560sl.
- two 7x16 et23, two 8x16 et35, one 8x16 et22, one 8x16 et11 Lorinser LO.
- 8x16 et11 and 7x16 et21 Fondmetal weave mounted on SLC Conv.

Of course I've got a big pile of tires. I could probably put any of the above wheels on for the GTG. If anyone wants me to bring anything for an inspection and maybe figure you can get me drunk and buy them off me for cheap, just let me know. After i sober up, I will probably need four wheels to drive home on though.
