I can't seem to remember how I fell in with this bunch of misfits (I'm getting old too). I joined MBCA when Kathy was President and dropped out when the politics got unbearable. I think I just stumbled into this list on the Internet. Although I am without an M-B at the moment, I still enjoy the list. I can keep tabs on you characters, and maybe I will find my Benz before Kaleb snatches it up.

It must have been '96 or '97 or so when I joined the local MBCA chapter. They had a scavenger hunt outing at the Barrett Jackson Aution (before it was crazy expensive to get near it). Boy child and I went, kicked booty on the scavenger hunt (filling out info on MB stuff at the auction) and then went out to eat with the club oldesters. At some point during the night, someone was talking about how the guys with older cars (they all had wicked new ones, of course) are talking on that new fangled internet thing and someone gave me Kathy Kennels phone number. I called her the next day and she hooked me up. I seem to remember...in those days it was Herr Doktor Booth, Kathy, Dan Penoff, Walt Lasher, RE, etc...but I could be making that up...I've slept several times since then.
