Here's the address: Crystal Cove Promenade, 7957 Pacific Coast Highway, Newport Beach, California. It's on the parking lot of the "mini" mall at the corner of Pacific Coast Highway (Highway 1) and Reef Point. There will be exotic cars there on exhibit. It starts early at 7am and the cars start leaving between 8:30 to 9 am.

Thanks to B55 for his prior posts on this. (We're just a little slow to get together, :D, 3 months)

Here's a short list of those planning to come (feel free to add your name, both R170 and R171, if you plan to come or are in the neighborhood):
V8SLK
TSlick
B 55 (if work schedule allows)
Cyberdrakon (if he wakes up on time, :D)

Couple of photos from Crystal Cove

Thank you Cyberdrakon (my hats off for waking up early :D), Tslick and V8SLK (alphabetical) for getting together at an early time this morning. It was very cool to meet forum members and browse through some classic cars (Black and Red Bantam, circa 1950 was best, I think) and see some cool ladies in their convertible Lambo's.

I wish B55 was there but he has a busy schedule. After Crystal Cove, we went and met with Matthew at Brabus in Newport Beach. V8SLK wanted to look at some wheels. Matthew and Dave (technician) were very gracious and even more accomodating after we said B55 sent us from the forum (I hope you don't mind, B55). We had a tour of the facility and got to look at their superclean and shiny workshop and the cool dismounted engines. One was a wicked 65 engine, that after mods by Brabus may have over 700 bhp!

A couple of photos from about 5 hours ago, just barely got home:

I put more images in SLKworld Image Hosting. We need to get a discussion going about what model is quicker, the 32 or 55 AMG. I smoked Cyberdrakon in winter mode (no 1'st gear) but he smoked his tires at the launch. Also there's some cool photos of V8 SLK's 55 with 20" Brabus wheels.

Scott, my sentiments exactly. Here is the style of wheel Scott is dreaming about against the V8SLK, there sharp.
