    2011 MBCA Seattle Show & Shine

    I had a great opportunity this weekend to visit the Seattle MBCA members at their annual show.

    I pulled into Phil Smart's Pre-Owned MB Center on Saturday, only to find I had parked next to a 92-93 500E in Graphite - bone stock, but immaculate!

    No idea who owned it.

    The following day, at the show, I was greeted by Ken who owned a Smoke Silver 92 500E. It originated in Canada like mine. Apparently, according to him, only 60 were imported to Canada that year.

    I really want to say that my son and I were were given a very warm welcome and the hospitality of the club was wonderful ! I was amazed at the goodwill and enthusiasm of the members.

    Additionally, 2Phast and his friends helped me out by digging up some car-related parts that will be of great use to me.

    A very enjoyable weekend, and a great trip to the 'States.

    It's funny, you should update your signature pic with that missing "tooth" (tow hook cover)

    Ha ha, thanks. That picture was taken the first day out, after buying the car - three years ago.
