    SF Bay Area W124.036 GTG 20 Jan (27 Jan rain date)

    So I made two of my friends buy E500Es in the last few months, and have another few acquaintances with them so I decided to organize a GTG on 20 Jan (with 27 Jan as the weather day backup). Location/details TBD but it will likely be in SF or Marin (5 of us are in SF, including Jlaa). Let me know if you'd like to join and I'll be sure to include you on the comms, or post on this thread if there's interest on the board.

    I hope I can make it. Motivation to get my new mono blocks mounted by then with new tires.

    Looking forward to seeing some pictures.

    I love to see multiple E500Es in one spot!

    "So I made two of my friends buy 500E's in the past few months"......sounds like a case of car shaming going on?? Haha.

    Two cars came across my desk by happenstance, both of which were nice 2-owner lifelong California cars and I matched them with friends who were looking (or in my estimation, should have been looking...) for 500s.

    Sunday's forecast has rain but that may change. Will make the call as it draws nearer. Likely meetup spot is Pier 30 in SF but I will need to go down there and reconnoiter the condition of the lot prior to our meeting up. Will continue to post updates here.

    Re: SF Bay Area W124.036 GTG 20 Jan (27 Jan rain date)

    OK, we are confirmed for next Sunday morning 27 Jan. Location is Berkeley Cars and Coffee (it's a great event, no wankers, pretty tight attendance list which is done on an email basis): a parking lot at the corner of 4th and Virginia streets in Berkeley. Plenty of space. We will convoy out of the city if there's interest, meeting probably at 0745 at Pier 30, assuming the lot isn't occupied for some other purpose, which I'll check this week. Alternatively, feel free to meet us there. The event starts officially at 0800 although people arrive before and after that.

    It’s always great to see an 036 GTG. We need another one here in SoCal.

    The 500SL we got, who belongs to which 036 car?

    My .036 is the DB199 one with the 18Ē BBS SL Monoblocks and CH oval.

    DB199 with chrome monoblocks: ab150

    DB199 with Evo II wheels: Bill Walsh

    DB199 with 8 holes: dionphaneuf

    DB744 with magnesium AMG Aero IIs: not a forum member to my knowledge but I know some guys on here know him. Heís an active concours guy who just sold his award winning 420SEL.

    DB744 with color coded door handles and E55 monoblocks: donít know him, he just happened to be at Cars and Coffee so he parked in the W124.036 section.

    Is the same gentleman who placed one position ahead of my car in class 6 with his white w126 420SEL .... and he has now sold his w126 and acquired this w124.036. ������.

    I will note that his 500E has the proper European look rear trunk lid, without the US spec rear license plate filler.

    I'm delighted you noticed! I try to wear the frames of the original selling dealer whenever I can find them. Plates too. Hence the Claridge's frame and 2W plates on the SL.

    Good eye. We discussed his plate filler: he just removed (and retained, of course) the panel and found the correct trim strip for the bottom edge of the trunk lid from a US 300E. The filler panel didn't appear on US 300Es until the 1991 model year.
