    I'll second that - Munira and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire event, especially the opportunity to socialize with local 190 SL owners! Thanks for this opportunity to meet together!

    Some photos

    Here are some of the German wehicles, a shot of the group and my favorite Deusenberg. Many folks took pictures, so we'll probably have more also.

    Every Driveway needs at least 6, 190 SL's

    Thanks to Dave & Munira for making the run up from Carlsbad, along with Rick Arnold and his Dad for braving the LA freeways during "Carmageddon". (weekend freeway shut-down)

    Many thanks to all that attended (21 total). This was a great opportunity to introduce new members to our veteran locals. The Lyon Air Museum is a top notch facility, tour was very interesting. An incredible mixture of vintage aircraft and classic cars. We were also joined by a group of MBCA/Orange County members. Thanks to Lynn Hern for organizing his group we do need to do more combined events in the future!
    As you can see the the BBQ portion of the event evolved into a driveway "tech Session". Thanks to Mike Kunz and Steve Marx whose depth of knowledge and input on these cars is always appreciated.
    Thanks again, Bill & Linda

    Thanks Bill. The pleasure was ours. It was a great event!!

    As mentioned, I was "so eager" to attend I decided to check out the museum last week (Sunday) with my two boys and returned Sunday (correct date) with my Dad, the former owner of my 190L. He was in heaven looking over the Duesenbergs, planes and excellent selection of 190SL's and great conversation during our meal with Munira and Dave. You are to be commended for having a great selection of SL's for the tech session; 2 red, 2 white, 2 black and 1 blue.

    I'll do a better job next time of checking the dates of the event.

    Dave, I share in your selection of the 1931 Model J. I used to visit that beautiful Duesenberg when it was owned by the late Otis Chandler and garaged in his museum in Oxnard. He was regularly in the museum showing his fine automobiles and loved to answer questions. A real loss when he passed away. A real "car guy." The first Duesenberg Chandler owned was the (attached) beautiful blue 1931 Model J Derham Tourist now owned by the Haynes Motor Museum in the U.K. I remember seeing it on display at the annual car show on the lawn of the old Ambasador Hotel in Los Angeles. My dad and I had just watched Mr. Chandler dust off the Duesenberg for the judges when this bozo leaned against the left fender to glance at the engine. I thought Chandler was going to rip off his head. He was a bit ticked off.
