Uploading a few of my amateur pictures from what was a fantastically successful day.
Numbers increased steadily throughout the morning and I'd say the final count was around 45+ 116's on the day.
All I know is the convoy stretched for a long long way!!
I expect the MBC Victoria will have the official photos uploaded soon.

I wished I could have partecipated  :'(
In Germany, the native land of the W116, you hardly see them on mixed meetings at all (except MB meetings).
The color diversity alone is thrilling. When I take a look at the parking lot across the street from my office window I count five red cars among appr. 100, the others being white, black and all tones between silver and dark grey.
