Any of you guys that are planning on coming to Atlanta AMG meet let's try to meet somewhere and roll in together. Kevin at MB Buckhead is trying to get a group together for breakfast and go together to the event but I may not be able to do that since I am working til 7 am (may need couple hours sleep). So anyone that may be coming a little later let's get together somewhere along the way. I can give you guys my cell # if you want to set something up, I'm abouyt 30 miles south of ATL.

reposting this since yesterday's got lost.

rlbawk got your PM.

Unfortunately I will not be able to make the AMG meet. My father passed away at the end of September and after going to the funeral I scheduled to fly back to Iowa that weekend to help my mother finish up the paperwork on my father's insurance, estate, etc. issues. I selected these dates before I knew about the AMG thing so I called Delta to try and change dates but they wanted 50% more of the price I paid so I said @#@# it.

Both of us have had elite Skymiles frequent flyer status for years so I thought they might do something for us, but NO!!

Was really looking forward to meeting some of you.

Hey trust me I know about the airlines, I'm an Air Traffic Controller and you think they do anything for us....not a chance, but I do get to tell pilots "where to go" on a daily basis. Maybe we can meet sometime for lunch or something. Have a good trip.

I will be coming up I-85 from Montgomery Saturday morning.

At least they upgraded us to first class for tomorrow's flight. Yeah, let's try to set something up when we get back.

According to Kevin the registration was so they could get a count on how many would be there for the dinner. I am heading up probably around 11 from south of ATL, if you know about what time you are coming over I could meet you on 85 south of town. I am working til 7 a.m. so I got to get a little sleep first.

Probably be ahead of you by just a bit. Not sure where about you are, but I think I am going to leave about 8am EST so that puts me at the Newnan exit about 10am.

I will PM you my cell number and you can call me if you want to try to meet up.

Coming live from the Event here. Well just about to get there just pulled into a car cleaning place to add a little sparkle for the pics. Wasn't too many cars at the hotel like last time as the meet is elsewhere. A CLK, CLK black and 3 SLK 55's.. watch this space.

ATL AMG Pics

A few shots from Atlanta AMG event. By the way it was great to meet Easty and VitaminT there, you guys rock.

The last 2 are a CLK63 Black with a matte paint finish. Really a neat looking finish especially with the carbon trim.
