I joined this forum about one year ago when i bought my W126 (280 SE), this is such a great forum that i can really learn a lot from it. Most of the time i was just being a good reader , reading the threads almost daily. theres lot of fun to it.
Ok, i'm from Malaysia, ( south east asia , and yes my country also hit by the recent tsunami) .What really excites me is that most of the forumner ( or is it forumnist) know each other in person ( local grouping etc ), hold gathering once in a while. So i was thinking of forming( but im not a good collaborator ) some sort of grouping for the benz owners ( especially w126 owner from this part of the world ( Malaysia, Thailand,Singapore, Brunei ). Since i was kind of busy, the idea doesnt really sink.
Recently, I was having problems with my business partner ( just a small company setup), so break up. So while waiting to get all the compensation and money, I really got nothing mush to do so i try to develop a website ( using opensource tools) , in view of acquiring new skills for myself. It is some sort of portal for benz owner , but i'm not in anyway going to compete with our beloved benzworld.org , its for virtual meeting point for owners in the east asia. Calendar for activities that sort of thing. I have it hosted here if you all want to have a look http://188.8.131.52/zoopp/
I would appreciate very much any feedback from you guys, especially from south east asia. If the response positive, i can arrange for a proper hosting with good domain name.
Recent survey, there're still about 500 units of W126 still roaming the streets in Malaysia, I think the figure should be higher in Thailand. Dont know about Singapore they have stringent rules for older vehicles. and we have over 2000 miles of hiway stretching across singapore-malaysia-thailand , wonder if we can group all the w126 and convoy along these hiways.
