Bernd,

The Lode Star Fest will be held from June 18-33,2008. You can find information about the meet on the club website. If you think you can make it, please let us know if there is anything we can do to assist you once you arrive in the US.

Best regards,
Stu

Stu,

I flew up and down to the states in the last 4 years at lot of times. I had a girl friend in Florida. This is where I bought one of my 6.3s the other I picked up in SC. Yes, the euro2dollar rate is fine right now, no doubt.
For my own safety I will avoid Florida, but there is a chance that I would have to fly for a friend to NY who wants to buy a new Audi Q7 and ship it to Austria. It is about $50k in NY and about 80K in Euros in Austria (sure, there are some taxes to be paid)
What time is it in June?

What's your e-mail address?

Bernd,

How about coming to the US for the M-100 Meet in New York state in June? I promise you a relatively worthless US Dollar!

Best regards,
Stu
 
Stu,
Bummer, I would have loved to meet you.
Maybe next year, thanks for the info.

Werner,
I just bought a used one in good shape, but I might be interested in yours any way. Would you email me please your ideas?

Thanks in advance

Bernd,

Sorry you were not able to make it to Essen. It was great fun and a good number of M-100 guys were there from around the globe. I will not be a Veterama, but I know Drew Tibcken and Mike Trei are planning to attend. Have a good time!


Stu
 
Bernd,

Which interior part do you need?
I have a complete dashoard cover in dark brown in the original MB cardboard box.
If you are interested just let me know.
Cheers.

Stu,

I'm in Austria right now and won’t make it back to Amsterdam where I work and liveif I’m not in Austria till Sunday. But I will try to drive to Ludwigshafen, because I’m in needs for interior parts for two 6.3s.

I would be pleased to meet you there if possible!

Bernd,

If you do attend TechnoClassica, please try to catch up with us. Our usual hangout is the M-100 Deustchland exhibit in hall 9.1 (upstairs) or around the Daimler display. Hope to meet you in Essen!

Stu
 
Thanks Stu!

Bernd,

TechnoClassica is the largest collector car show in the world. If you have not been there, I recommend it over going to Veterama unless you are only interested in trying to find some used parts, as that is what Veterama is mostly designed to provide. TC will have parts vendors (although rather expensive) as well as an amazing presentation of cars to view and buy.

Stu
 
Which one would be the more interesting one for us 6.3 guys? I’ve never been to both of them.

Actually Stu, the GBP is very weak against the Euro at the moment, so no bargains at Essen for us either I fear. Looking forward to seeing you and any other M-100 members again soon.

We're not getting there until Friday, so I guess the only things remaining will be left hand drive dashboards and headlights.
 
Ian,

See you in Essen...

Stu
 
I'll be there (along with about another 149 Brits) from Thursday through Saturday. We are all staying at the Mecure, Rattingen so I should avoid that hotel if I were you!

It was actually less than the Etap if you booked far enough ahead.
