Nathan,

I made a clone of myself for that very purpose (to drive two 116s). ;D

I do remember the MH red 116, I'm not sure whose it was but it was nice.

Hi Guys,

I will see how I am placed for the 9th and will probably be there.

Julian if you still want the sump bolts just give me a ring.

Hi,

Count me in & thanks Nathan for organising something, I've been slack recently and away from the computer.

I'll see if I can twist my Dad's arm to get both 116's along (for part anyway)

excellent news John. TJ is likely to have his two cars present, if you have your two present, ill maybe get another driver so i have two of our 4 registered 116s present (the two silver 6.9s).  i keep updating my post on page 1 of this thread as people inform me. havent heard back from 4-5 of previous forum members though, so not sure.  the merc club VP will kindly email their members so hopefully we can muster a few of them too. 
id love to break the double figures here, it would a pretty reasonable effort though.  the first meeting we had had 6 6.9s from memory which wasnt bad at all.

Hi John, when the time and venue is sorted can fang down the Tammin back road and maybe start a mini convoy from your hanger to the event? Hope not a hot day, my three year old AC compressor has crapped itself :'(

Hi Guys,
confirming the date of sunday december 9. i have received an email from the former head of service at Diesel Motors.  He has kindly offered to meet and show us the new Mercedes paint facility.  I have yet to confirm the driving route, but my expectations woudl be to meet at the paint facility at 0900, and after a tour of the facility, we will drive on and ultimately have lunch.  i will get more details following confirmation of this plan
regards

Sorry, I'm planning on taking my white 6.9 down to Perth this Sunday (2nd) so it will be in Perth for the drive on the 9th.

The recon radiator is going in my 280S this weekend, so I'll be rocking and rolling by the time this event is upon us. I might get a quote for a paint job whilst we're there LOL (for when I win Lotto).

I suppose I'd better get the cover off my 6.9 and make sure it works this weekend in preparation.

It hasn't been out of the shed since the 8th September.
