Cool

More First Friday. Had a such a good time. We received so many compliments and I think Jeff enjoyed showing off the Beast.

Looks like you two had fun.

Reminds me, I need to go look at some old mod threads.

I'd forgotten the star under the hood.

I expect I'll need to find a purple one too! @Bluebadger

Both cars look incredible. Knowing that I am not on here often, thank you Jeff for the pm to give me a heads up on the pictures. It really makes me miss the SLK.

More pix...

Jeff made quick friends with the Corvette guy parked next to him comparing what else, cleaning products!

Although it was HOT, we still had a great time!

I carded a really nice couple who own a black R171 and spoke with them about the forum. They heard about our previous Florida meets and were thrilled when I invited them to Lakeridge Winery on 11/2!

So, Marykay,
Do you and Kevin do 1st Friday a lot? I'm thinking we might drift over on Friday for the 1st, then sat to the winery and lake eating. Might as well stay another night since the MB gathering at the Concours at Hilton Head is the same time...
Just wondering
John

They do it every 1st Friday, cause they always ask me. Nov 1st is the next one but the meet is the next day so I don't want to drive 60 miles round trip before the meet the next day.

We go every 1st Friday weather permitting!
Drift down and join us!
We drink and dine afterwards!
I'd like to see SLKs take over!
Let me know!
