the 'Mercedes Enthusiasts Group' is organizing a cruise from Irvine Classic Center to Riverside, a bit of a drive, but should be fun, they'll be taking a look at the MB Classic Center.

Anyone Interested?

The following copy and pasted from their thread:
Mercedes Benz Enthusiasts Group
presents
soCal Car Collection Cruise
Saturday Dec. 4th

All Mercedes Benz automobiles are welcome.

We will meet at the Mercedes Benz Classic Center in Irvine for a meet and greet around 8:00 a.m.
We will leave the Classic center promptly at 9:30 a.m. and travel South on Interstate 5 to Ortega Hwy. (74),
then North over the mountains past Lake Elsinore, then North on Interstate 215 to Riverside for a lunch break (restaurant to be determined).
After lunch, we will visit 2 Private Car Collections located nearby in Riverside.
The first collection includes many Mercedes Benz's, as well as other classics.
The second collection we will visit has been called "mind blowing" and the setting it's in is "spectacular".
As with all M.B.E.G. events, there will be a separate "Roll-Call" thread to sign up at.
The details will be posted in a few days, so stay tuned.......

This sounds very interesting. Kind of in the same general direction as our run this tomorrow although no actual back-country/twisty driving with this group, besides Ortega it looks like. It's been a while since we went on a purely leisurely outing.

I'm tentatively in for this.

Bump for reminder, this Saturday!

Also, some of the AMGers are meeting up at the Irvine cars and coffee in the morning, so if you are in that area and an early riser, you might want to check that out too! it's not far from the MB classic center.

I don't really know if I can make this one, actually. So many computers broke down in the Valley and LA recently and I need to fix them... I would love to join it, though.

cyberdraken - do you still have the mesh windscreen you mentioned a couple weeks ago? I've been getting offers of $50-60. Good chance to meet up and exchange if you're interested.

The Cars & Coffee may finally turn out to be too early for me, although I'm an early riser :D. Is the location description in this flyer still accurate? I will see if I can make it somehow. I really enjoyed the one in Las Vegas a few months ago.

If I don't get a call from LW Research and my brother doesn't have other plans, I am interested in showing up. What time and where are you guys planning to meet? Does one have to register?

I just signed up.

I think I'm passing on the Cars & Coffee; I've decided that's just really a bit too early for me to get there at or before 7am. So I was planning to just meet in the parking lot of the MB Classic at 8am. I'll probably shoot to get there around 7:30-7:45am so I can hang for a bit.

The route and schedule are now posted up on benzworld. Looks like we'll be at the Classic Car center from 8:00-9:30am. I'll probably shoot to be there right at 8:00 in that case instead of at 7:30. I didn't know we were going to be there for a while. If it turns out I misjudge the travel time and still get to Irvine way early, I might drop by Cars & Coffee.

So far 18 people have signed up. Looks like it's going to be a fun event.
