Perhaps if nobody objects too much, we can make this months meet up on Saturday?

If that's ok with everyone perhaps the thread could be re-titled Brooklands GTG Saturday 26th September?

So we've got a 116 coming, a 220, a 221, hopefully a 140, all we need is a 126 to complete the lineup...

Hi all.

I've just joined and noticed this little get-together at Brooklands.

Providing the weather is good, I may well take a trip down myself if none of you guys mind a new guy.

A couple of pics to introduce my 63. Had it for about 3 months now.
Needless to say, it is ridiculous fun. :eek:



Would also be great to see that C55 at Brooklands too! :thumb:

Regards.

yeah - I bet... :)

Haven't seen too many of the CLK63s around so it will be interesting to check it out.

See you there!

Hi and welcome Rashman - nice looking CLK :cool:

Not too bad a meetup if the weather isn't kind as there's plenty to see and facilities in MB World too.

I've been away for a while so will need to check a few things but it's most likely I'll be there, so an updated list:

1 Koolvin 350SE
2 D w124
3 Howard (?)
4 Wobbly
6 Peter C43
7 Will
8 davidbilyk
9 z4hid10
10 Adam 230k

12 Trando C55
13 Rashman (?)

See you all there.

Hey buddy.

Yeah, funnily enough, I haven't seen another either.

As you probably know, Mercedes don't make the 209 any more (being replaced by the E-Class Coupe).

So hopefully, there aren't too many of them around! haha.
Thanks for your welcome.

Hi mate.
Thanks for your kind words.

Interestingly, I was at Brooklands about 4wks ago. I had a go at their AMG driving experience.
As you'd expect, it was great fun!

Unfortunately, there wasn't a CLK63 available to drive (would have been nice to hammer someone elses 63 instead of mine! haha), but I got a C63 instead - which was cool, because they are both similar sizes and weights.

This is what I had up to recently.

It was my pride and joy and kept it very clean.
I had done various mods here and there to get it how I wanted it.

Will,
Just seen your pics on the gallery thread...

I can't believe how lucky you are to have found such a ridiculously clean 208!

Funnily enough, what you have is exactly what I was after - a well kept, fresh 55.
I too was craving the V8!

I went up and down the country looking for one and was disappointed everytime I viewed one.

You should have seen them, rust everywhere.. even in the engine bays.
I was guttted.
I've always loved the 208. There just something about it's shape that makes it look properly chunky.

I had to conclude that I wasn't going to find a 55 in good enough condition. That's when I had to turn to the 209.

Well done for your find!

His 190. Was it a Cosworth?

I saw a couple of nice ones at a meet in Runwell (nr Basildon) Yesterday.

It's always good to see them.

Just had a sneak peek at your pics.. I don't think you could get that any cleaner, could you?!

Well done. It's great to see people looking after their Benz.
