06/06/2009 SGV,OC,SD meet; photos

It was a great pleasure to meet everyone, both familiar and new faces. There were nine vehicles when we left Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach after an excellent BBQ lunch with hamburgers, hot dogs, sliders (more on this later), sun chips, soda, and some beer (small amount). A BIG THANK YOU to Edward (Cyberdrakon) and Kandy for the food and drinks. Weather was beautiful, sunny and cool (upper 60's).

Please post your photos to share too, and your thoughts/comments.


Shelle's ride, E63 AMG. Man I want those rims



At the parking lot on Palm Street, Balboa Peninsula, Newport Beach, CA. I wonder what V8SLK(Scott), Tslick (Tom), slkluv (Matt) and Shelle are talking about?



Closer look reveals discussion on digital movie camera with wide angle lens, high tech foam to reduce wind noise, etc...(too technical for me )

First there were 5, then 6, then 8...then 9 vehicles

Cyberdrakon and Kandy show up a few minutes later.



Cyberdrakon's wide body R171 (slightly modified), very well done with aggressive looks.

Time for BBQ

Cheeseburgers ... medium or well-done?



Master Chef is getting busy.




Couple of piccies of Balboa Beach and the pier. Not crowded at all.






Edward and Kandy, busy at the grill. Love the grub.




Assemble your hamburger, hold the tomatoes on mine.




Couple of photos with people enjoying each others company.

Time for some Hawaiian style Sliders

Tom, the sliders were very good.

Sliders being grilled. Notice the spam, Hawaiian bread, a few dogs and a hamburger meat still cooking...




Shelle handing out the assembled sliders: Hawaiian bread, a touch of mayo, spam, mildly spiced and sliced KimChi, and a few slender pieces of green onions. Yummy Yummy to the tummy.



Closer look at the sliders:

First break

After lunch, an easy drive south on Pacific Coast Highway and a brief stop for photos and chatting at south Newport Beach area.






Looking out unto the entrance to Newport Marina with some ships coming home in mid afternoon:



Another shot of a slightly modified R171

2nd break and some photos at the end of the day

Second break at Irvine Shell Parking lot. This after some burnt rubber on the road from Tslick, Cyberdrakon, Shelle and SoCalC55.




Few final photos after a very good run through Santiago Canyon. Sorry you couldn't make it this time Dave (Cold Shot), another Dave with a black SLK 55 did show up (he need to do some mods though; like SmartTop, clear side markers and modded R170 short antenna, ..)

Thanks to Mr. Pathfinder (TSlick). The R170 SLK32 AMG should always be the lead vehicle

Glad you could join us. The sound of the exhaust got me worried about attracting attention from the black&white but glad we only saw one at the end of the run. I saw him measuring the last 3 cars in our group.

Made it through the end of the interweb... had a great time. Thanks to Edward and Kandy for the BBQ. A lot of nice folks and cars. Putting together a video and will post later. Speaking of sound, hears that black C55 growling.
