Hello everyone,
2000 miles on the car and lovin it. No problems so far(unless you count the people stopping me to talk about the car). I saw that there is a group up north that gets together for drives and was wondering if there is such a group of enthusiasts here in Socal?. If MB ever built a Socal car this is it.

No, but I would be interested and I think I saw a post from someone from Burbank and LA (although I think she is waiting for a 55).

lion 126:

One more suggestion in getting a group together...post it also on the r170 board. Our last two drives had 12 vehicles and 10 were 170's. that might help you get to critical mass for a successful meet and over time the r171's will increase...[;)]

Then maybe the SoCal and NoCal groups could meet halfway (or thereabouts) for a weekend meet? Hearst Castle, Santa Maria (after the Michael Jackson trial...currently the papparazi have all the rooms) or even the "Sideways" wine country tour[8D]

malibuite:
I am just back from spending today test driving the routes for the 3/19 drive for No. CA...and I think you have some good ideas for a meet in between...I will bring it up to our group when we meet and drive on 3/19! I know we have April with an overnighter in the gold country and the may and June may have some plans, but I will see when the first possible date is for a joint meet in between...stay tuned...[:D][:D][:D]

You are going to love it; got a little over 7 thousand miles myself. The next NoCal monthly drive is the 19th, meeting in the Presidio of San Francisco; details will be updated on this board on after my "dry run" Saturday...[;)] [:D][:D][:D]

190 miles after a month. Sorry, but I wouldn't take it out when it was raining[:D] Still waiting for the Socal Drive. I see the AMG group just had a big Socal gathering but they tend not to want other than AMG cars[:(]

Hello, How about us SoCal owners just starting out with a simple meet and greet. I was thinking of a simple drive down PCH. Maybe starting in malibuites teritory and driving down to Dana Point harbor. Have some lunch and then we could each drop off on the way back as we near home. Just a thought but would love to get something started. Let me know what you all think.[8D][8D]

Yeh, but once you get around LAX the drive gets kind of squirrely. Were you planning to get on Sepulveda? And with weekend traffic, could take hours on PCH especially if nice weather. Should we try something shorter like Malibu to Santa Monica Pier or perhaps start in Huntington Beach to Dana Point?

I'm up for anything. You make a good point about the LAX thing. I don't know if I'm the only one in OC , but I would be willing to come up to your area. The HB to Dana Point drive would definately be easier and I think a little more scenic. It would take us through Newport, Laguna Beach etc. We could meet at Pier Plaza in HB(plenty of parking).
