A wonderful day touring through Mt Tambourine and then onto the Gold Coast for Lunch. It was really great to meet some new SLK owners from the Forum.

Thanks for the great pics Sean. I agree - great day, great company, good food and good weather, all the qualities needed for some memorable top-down driving. We even catered for all tastes and made a trip to Harbour Town for some 'quick' shopping.

I'm starting to notice a trend though - we can't seem to get more than 5 cars on the meets. Just letting everyone know, we don't restrict how many can come on these drives, all are welcome. Maybe we can beat the record of 5 next time. . Stay posted.

I think I can speak for Don & Gaye and I know Jo and myself had an awesome day. Great to meet all you fine folks and share in your passion for excellence in automotive engineering, nice food and beverages, keeping the better half happy, drives in the Australian countryside and making a huge ruckus in it. Can't wait for the next one.
Cheers
Col.

Hi Phil,
I've posted a short report with a pic on our Facebook page - every bit of publicity helps.
All the best for the new year.

Hi Queenslanders,
The Sydney club now has 17 SLKs on the club register with another two in the pipeline, but it takes a lot of effort and everyone needs to pitch in to take the load off the main organiser.
Good luck with your next run, I hope you do increase your roll uphyour next drive.
All the best from me too Phil
Sean MacC.

Hi everyone. The Mercedes Benz Car Club of Queensland is holding a skills day on Sunday 15 May, commencing at 9.00am at the Maleny Showgrounds located at 13 Maleny-Stanley Road, Maleny. I know there are a few of us fronting up to either look or compete, with competition open to MB Car club members.

It would be great to see a good roll up of SLK's at the meet, even if you are not a member, plus it will give you a taste of the Club as well as having a great time. The advice is to BYO drinks and food along with some chairs. I've been advised that regardless of weather, the event will go ahead.

Hope to see a lot of SLK's on the highway.

Hi Guys, Sean and I will be there also. We will most likely be leaving early to assist the guys.

Look forward to seeing everyone. Dont forget to bring a couple of chairs and something to eat/drink.

Hi everyone

For all of those who want to gather at Landsborough before we head up to The Maleny Showgrounds on Sunday (15th), the meeting spot is the corner of Stephens and Maleny Street, Landsborough at 8.30am. According to Google Maps, it's a 15 minute drive to Maleny from Landsborough. This is a great excuse to get the cobwebs out and meet up with similar Mercedes enthusiasts as we all get together to enjoy each other's company. There is no entry fee, just rock up and enjoy.

The invite asks for everyone to bring their own chairs and food, but if you check out Trip Advisor, you'll find there are several eateries/coffee shops in Maleny to cater for all tastes.

Hope to See a good roll up.

Welcome to the forum GeoffT. You have bought my next car (once my r171 gets too old).
I spend my time alternating between Toowoomba and Brisbane. One of these days an SLK outing will coincide with a weekend in Brisbane and I'll turn up and meet everyone.

Guys,

I have been reading about the new SCL , MB have made a huge mistake by not having a AMG V8. Nothing sound as good and has the grunt as MB AMG V8.
They should have drop the 4 litre twin turbo V8 in, now that would an be SLK !

Hi from Sunny Coast

Hi all,

I've just joined the forum, and have a 2005 SLK350 - Cubanite Silver.

I'm keen to join any Qld get-together that's organised. Please just let me know where and when.

Regards
Ozbux
