Feb 21, 2009 SoCal Meet, piccies

It was a great pleasure to meet new faces and make new friends as well as meet old friends today. Thank you Tom for a nice and scenic drive along Long Beach Harbor and Palos Verdes.

It was cool to meet Tpman (Kevin), Mr and Mrs amgc55slk5 (Curt and Christy), bruzee (Bruce and David), and to see slkluv and Tslick again. We missed you - Catchmefucan, Mazeka, zcloud, V8SLK and Cyberdrakon. Perhaps next time.

Here's hoping to a future meet perhaps with Bruce by Big Bear Mountain.

R170 AMG (Tslick) as usual is our lead car and pathfinder. It was fun to see different SLK's, each with their own personality and mods.

Piccies to follow.

Eddy

Send a message via MSN to slkluv
Tried uploading a few photos from the event twice, got the same error message each time "500 - Internal server error. There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed."

Ill try again later.

Lunch

Somebody was talking about food from a hole-in-the-wall place, beer and wine. So here's the second stop for lunch:



Omelet with Italian Sausage, olives, mushroom, cheese, coffee, toast and butter:



Fish and chips was popular for lunch today:





(I have a group photo, but will only post with first names if okay with amgc55slk5, tpman, bruzee, slkluv and Tslick, please let me know by posting here asking for group photo or PM, thanks).

Eddy, you are always "johnny on the spot" with the camera. And like the time I was so honored to join you and the SoCal crew last year, you also take great shots of the food and venues. I REALLY wish I could have been there today. Instead, the wife and I headed back to the scene of the "kissing bandit". We had a good "top down" ride and heard great music from the 60's and 70's (acoustically) while enjoying some nice Cab's and blends.

We are very glad our SLKW brothers and sisters had a good day.
