Yeah, hit me up cap. We'll have a pre meet this weekend. This "socal" meet needs to happen though! I never thought I'd meet another with the same passion for old school MB diesel power.

Oh man that meetup was amazing! I had so much fun!!!!


Nooooooooooot Sad

I did meet up with Makin' tonight though. His diesel collection is pretty cool between the two 300's the suburban and the freight. He even provided pizza and beer! Big Grin I hear the next meet up is at his place....

RE: socal STD meetup?
Haha! I don't know about the first meet, but defenately! I would love to have a bunch of old MB rattlers fill the neighborhood with smoke. I haven't pissed anyone off for awhile. Someone got the city on me about the freight a few months back. If I don't run it for a week, she let's out a healthy cloud. I feel like batman escaping through the smoke screen. Haha!
"WINNING!"Lol. I got out of my tickets and fines. I was "asked" if I can just park it in the yard off the street.

I blew my turbo pulling a jeep out of the mud then I managed to break the transmission without the turbo winching a f-350 out of a creek.

But if you guys want to cruise down and bs and do what ever let me know.

I thought it was an awesome 4wd burnout that caused the shaft to break, trans to gut, and the turbo to over-spool and grenade.

Nah I sucked a silicon boot into the turbo. It's the original turbo with 200+k on it. I'm just changing the compressor wheel.

my red TD would blow a big healthy cloud of smoke when started up for the first time of the day. one day the bitchy old lady who is on the HOA board (who has been responsible for letters, fines, a hearing, and more!) was doing something in her garage with the door open. i started my car and it belched the most epic cloud of thick dark smoke. the wind was just exactly perfect, and carried the entire cloud totally intact right into that hag's garage all at once. i had to contain my laughter long enough to run back into my house, where i discovered my mother had seen the whole thing and was more entertained than even i was.

basically, it was awesome as fuck.

RE: socal STD meetup?
Let me know when you guys are getting together again and I will try to make it. I am in Scripps Ranch and have two 1987 190DTs. I have the head off one right now though. It cracked right around the pre-chamber. (OM602.961 motor). I have another head one in the mail and I'm planning on having a machine shop go through the head and do a top end rebuild on it before I put it together.

Copy that. I don't have anything that interesting to look at as far as performance mods on my machines anyway. Mainly veg mods and gauges at this point. I eventually want to do a W201 project car, but at this point I am too busy to take on an ambitious project.

Me have no Mercedes anymore.
Me miss Mercedes.
Me broke f250.
Me have no money.

I have dreams to build a rally w123 to compete in some of the offroad races in SoCal, but that dream keeps getting farther and further away.

Any photos of the 190D Turbo? How long have you had this grey one?

There's not a lot of people with these in SoCal, and I sold my grey 190D Turbo a while back. I'm wondering if you might have my old car?

I'm in LA, sunset and 405. Would be fun to get coffee somewhere. I think Surf Rodder is in Malibu; not sure who else is lurking about.
