South African W116 get-to-gether
« on: 11 January 2012, 04:52 AM »
guys,

I would like to arrange a meeting of South African W116's later this year.  Express interest/propose dates/locations here.

How about September/October vicinity?

Its not going to be practical to have it nation-wide, but I was thinking about catering essentially for the Northern Region - Gauteng, NW, Northern Province, Mpumalanga. 

I have identified a very nice location between Dullstroom and Sabie - possibly for 3 days/2 nights?.  Great food, great bar, great view, fair pricing. 

Pompy - if you cut across directly to Witbank, bypassing JHb, its about the same travelling distance for you, so no excuses, right?

'76 6.9 Euro, '78 6.9 AMG, '80 280SE, '74 350SE, '82 500SEL euro full hydro, '83 500SEL euro full hydro , '81 500SL

Sounds great, S-Class - are you going to sort out my 6.9 before then?

Do you have to be a member of the MBCSA to join?  ;D

Seeing as the W114 would not be the featured car of the event, I'm not sure I could get club blessing for it ?  :P

but anyhow, I'm not sure that I want it to be an official club event.

If it's an official 116.org event, then that would be cool
