ATL Group Meet Today - Great!

Saludos to all ... just want to thank Dave and Joe for putting together the great Atlanta meet today ... it was a pleasure to meet those that attended ... sorry we missed a couple of folks that intended to be there but last minutes events prevented them from doing so...

I enjoyed learning about and seeing the tuning work of the techs at the Buckhead MB dealer ... awesome work these guys do! ... also learned some about the SMART car, which this MB dealer also happens to sell ... neat little set of wheels, especially the RennTech outfitted model for $30K ...

Got meet some wives and the special person of the day was little Ken, what a darling of a boy ... he has a very funny cow joke ... ask him about it next time we get together ...

Well, again muchas gracias for the experience ... it was truly fun ... ciao,

Hi etyu ... yes, Admin took some shots and I'm sure they'll be posted soon ... some awesome RennTech mods were taking place in that tuning shop ... my first time seeing such things, heck I didn't even know what "tuning" meant - at least not in the terms used now - until I joined the group ... before than, I just thought "tuning" meant a tune up job

On way home from the meet, there was a traffic jam on highway 400 for about 2 miles due to a brush fire ... my eyes feasted on a Maz Granturismo S en route ... the "rumble" of that car was candy to my ears ... first time seeing/hearing one in person ... but after getting out of the jam the road was clear, of traffic and cops, so for the first time I put the peddle to the metal and took the ride up to 115 mph

... God, what a rush ... never experienced that before in a car (I'm 55 years old, now) ... what a feeling !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Had a GREAT time at our meet today and it was very nice meeting everyone. I want to thank David, Joe and Ken for pulling all this together for us.

The guys at the MB dealership had some awesome high performance cars for us to drool over. Errrrr ummm...anyone count the number of headers on the floor when we left? I think Joe walked a lil funny on the way to his car

David - Kudos to you for picking an awesome restaurant.


Thanks again,
Dave

Glad everyone had such a good time! That dealership does so much tuning and it was fun to see how excited those guys get about there work.

Also, I thought Zuffy's was a perfect place to bring the group...good food and quiet with great company!! Good Choice Dave!

Me no takey any headers!!! I would've tried until I realized ya need two of the darn things!!!!

Had a blast at the meetup....was a pleasure to meet everybody. The downside? The wife is now not so impressed with the 350....thinks she needs to go with a modified 55....I brought her, so I guess I played with fire and got burned. We can't wait for the next meetup!!
