WA 116 gathering sunday 9th december
« on: 30 October 2012, 11:48 PM »
hi guys,
ive sent an email to those i have the email for but wondered whether a meeting on sunday 9th december might be in order? i know John kindly offered a visit up to his place in York previously. selfishly i would have trouble getting a whole day free so thought a gathering startring around 9-10am and including a drive, with a conclusion of lunch at a local restaurant. exact plans would follow but id be interested in rough numbers.all 116s welcome, forum members, club members, hobos who sleep in 116s - all welcome. if the date gets set, ill ask the local merc club to email those interested.
regards
nathan

I'll attend in a 116 of some description. My 280S needs a radiator refurb ASAP, so probably the 6.9.

I am in as well  :) Tim, those Spheres will be in the boot for you as well. How did the MBCWA meet go? was unable to get there as the wedding the day before went overtime  :-\

Awesome,

Thanks Goldacre. I'm hoping we'll have a good turnout this time.

As far as I know, the MBCCWA meet wasn't popular, at least I don't think any of us went. I was off the mainland too.

I went, fairly good turnout but down on last years numbers apparently. Rejoined the club, maybe I"ll get more function, maybe I won"t.

The 9th of December is my wedding anniversary, don't feel like loose another nut but I'll be there is spirit.

Regards,

Giles

hi guys, you will find a brief video of the day on the facebook page of "Mercedes Benz car club of western australia", strangely under nathan! the video wasnt up to my usual standards so i wont add it to my youtube account.
the weather was great. location was actually very nice. but a bit small. sadly, aside from SLs, there seems to be little interest in anything older than a 126. one 116, one 108, one ponton and so on.

Motec?

David G (Merc WA Club)

i will PM other forum members including WGB, Philpot, Split, plmstr92. any other wa'ers i may have forgotten? i think ryan1980 sold his car.
i dont wish to disturb WGB, but im not sure if anyone else has details on ChrisP who has a 6.9 and came on our last one?
TJ, do you remember a red 116 with plates MH31908. it was a hubcapped regular 116 and i cant remember who the bloke was!
i sms'ed 5 other 6.9 owners and will see if they reply. ive emailed Walter H too for any contact details.
 hell, if i see a 116 in the next few weeks im gonna pull over and ask them.
i think it would be a pretty cool effort to try and get a dozen plus cars?!!
regards
nathan
Ps Chris v no out as away

Sounds good Nathan. I believe both of my 116s will be going one way or another. It will be great! Tim

Tim, both 116s. you can do the splits driving them. i was gonna bring 4 but couldnt figure out how to manage 4 cruise controls with only 2 arms and 2 legs.
i have now smsed the 5 other 6.9 owners i had mobiles for.  interestigngly, there are 4 6.9 owners in WA called David!
