    Thanks to our Hosts and Some Photos of Cars at Convention

    My wife, Peggy, and I were able only to attend the opening night reception on Monday since I had to return home on Tuesday. I am still practicing communications law full time--only way to pay for my 190SL habit!

    We really enjoyed meeting so many fellow 190SL enthusiasts. Bob Clendenin and Linda Lusk deserve many thanks for putting together such a great Convention. The "goody bags" available at registration were full of wonderful items, including 190SL shirts and car badges. It was great to meet Jim Villers and to get advice from the expert, Bruce Adams.

    Hopefully, we'll be back next year and can stay for the whole party.

    Thanks again to all who made this year's Convention such a success. Attached are three photos taken during the Convention.

    Thanks for sharing Gary - the rest of use were wondering whether the convention was faked, you know, like the lunar landing

    Ha, cheers.

    Amazing photos! Any museum would envy such a huge diversity. It is a car lover paradise. Concept cars are a staple of automobile shows. I also have some like this type of stuff on my PC. I sure will must be next time post here. However, thanks for this...

    Yes, Bob and Linda did a wonderful job giving us all a good taste of Florida's Gulf Coast. Great group of members and some fun cars to pore over. Lots of new members to meet too. Looking forward to Fredericksburg, Texas next year.

    Thank you Linda and Bob for a fantastic job. Everyone seemed to have a great time. I know we did.
    It was also good to finally meet face to face with so many great members. I look forward to next year
