does anyone know if there are any r129 or benz clubs in the san francisco bay area?
I grew up in the bay area (Marin)...... I, also wish there was an R129 club down here in Orange County. I did go to a member meet, but I was the only R129 there.does anyone know if there are any r129 or benz clubs in the san francisco bay area?
The members are reading this also....... I also inquired about getting together, but not much of a response. Actually nothing about meeting.I will keep you on my list Mountie!
I am in So Cal/LA for a few months a year. But mostly in Sonoma.
We can search for members together?
Ahh, thats rough... And i totally agree with you.The members are reading this also....... I also inquired about getting together, but not much of a response. Actually nothing about meeting.
Too bad...... A lot of good ideas & information could be shared, when our cars are next to each other.
( BTW , I have family members living in Penngrove & town of Sonoma)
Worth a try. I'm also hoping to go driving with other owners, it's a car after all.Corona Del Mar, my old hangout, lived in Newport for 35 years, now in Temecula pop about 100k, in the last 4 years owning a R129 I've seen maybe 8 here, Idea, may be lame but, you could do a virtual meet on Periscope App, (Twitter owned)that app you can have group scopes , where you could share your ride live and get comments from group members only.plus there's replay so lots of R129 could be shared, iPhone or android , I do live art on Periscope and have viewers who buy it.
LAMike you still have a Volvo?I'm down here in the LA area (Ventura County). We had a number of r129 owners get together in OC a few years ago. I joined both the Ventura and LA chapters of the MB Owners Club....
Eh....these folks rather just show off their cars and their money. No desire to share information, help another member, or give any tech advice.
I used to be the Pres of the So Cal chapter of the Volvo Owners Club of America. Much different crowd.
CJ,LAMike you still have a Volvo?
I have a few still in the stable and recently got my "new to me" R129 back in shape to drive legally and safely.
It took a while and I'm still working on soft top issues, but all around the engine and other systems are fine.
Would love to meet up with you and any other Los Angeles or OC locals to talk shop! :smile Ventura and Irvine are not that far for me.
I haven't been in the Bay area for a while but plan a trip in the near future. Is that 880 traffic still a bear??
