wow!!!

Awesome !!!

ONLY in Southern California, the undisputed capitol of car culture, could this have taken place !

The roll call of these cars is like a pictorial sampler of Mercedes Benz autos for the last 35 years !!


I am so sorry I unavoidably missed out and being with you guys.

Another great job by Rich and Dennis!!! I'll see you there at the next one.


Great job with the photo's - as always -- Patrick. Keep 'em coming!!

Thanks gentlemen!

I wanted to take much more photos like interior shots and the like but did not have enough time. Regardless, it was just as fun taking the photos as doing the meet.

During the Ortega Highway drive I saw the '82 300CD (red coupe) having problems so I stopped to help but it had severe fuel starvation/clogging issues (especially up the mountain pass). Eventually I had to bail out to catch up with the group at Lake Elsinore Costco only to realize we did not have enough time there, I was hurriedly taking shots here and there so not much time to compose the shots properly and was not able to cover all of the cars in detail.

When we have another meet/run, please reserve a good amount of time for us to hang out and meet the members/owners, AND still have time to take photos. And somehow I wish we would know well before hand where the destinations/stop points were along the route so we won't be in a hurry to join the caravan.

I wanted to do a group shot of the whole gang at the end but some have already taken off at that point.

Anyway, please feel free to upload any and all photos you have from the meet on this thread.

Great pictures. The meet was a blast. Interesting that we ticked off some people so bad for going slow on Ortega that they almost ended up wrecking their own car while showing their indignation. Some people need to learn to take life a bit slower.

I already put my pictures on the original thread, before this picture thread was created, so instead of posting them again I'll just refer to it here :D.

I thought that SLK was an STI for a second...
We need more pictures of that one though. It looks like a mini black series :eek:

If you are referring to the black w124, it's a de-badged 93 500E.

What a great day that was put on. Nice meet and greet, beautiful scenic drive, good spot for lunch then to finish it off...a period old-town built right in someones yard with the Kitty Hawk hanging out in the 3,500 square foot garage with some nice cars from the 20's to keep it company!

Thanks again for taking the time and effort to arrange such a spectacular day! Sure was nice having the big mix of years and models there.

Already looking forward to the next one.
