Good afternoon. I am thinking about traveling to the Meeting of the Clans from southwest GA. May not have the time to drive. Anyone have an extra seat in case I fly and my girlfriend doesn't come (LOL)?

Thanks, Dan. If that's the way it shakes out, I would be honored!

Hi James

Should you fly into London, Ontario I have a passenger seat open in my 280SL. So I could pick you up for the car show on Thur. aug. 22 and again on Fri. 23 for the dinner then Saturday morning Aug 24 and take you to the Benz Barn including drives on on Saturday and Sunday. Only on Sunday we will end up half way between London and Port Lampton (our itinerary of events 22 to 25 will be issues soon). So on Sunday i shall head back to London Ontario. If your fliegt to go home is from London, i’ll Be happy to take you back to your hotel in London as well.

On the other hand should you travel to Port Lampton and stay in a local hotel, you can still ride with me (except for the Sunday back to Port Lampton or your hotel, since I shall be heading back to London).

As Dan said we can work it out, for it’s not only about cars its’s also and foremost about people :)

Cheers,

Dieter

I was at the Country Cruse Car Show on Sunday and on the way out I saw Steve Plunkett. I talked to him about our Thursday, August 22, 2019 plan to drop in on the Thursday Country Cruse and what the chances would be for several Pagoda owners to visit his Special Cadillac collection. I told him there be several Members of our Group from Ontario and other Provinces as well as one Member from Australia.

Steve gave me his business card and said “Call me about a week before”

Let’s keep our fingers crossed we might be treated to some extra special cars. I shall follow up with Steve.

Steve opens his estate/golf course every Thursday during the summer for a charity car show depending on the weather 200 to 300 cars of all sort of makes can be seen from Ontario or the USA.

Hello Dan,
I plan on attending while visiting my hometown Cleveland ,Ohio.  I told a friend of mine about my plans and he wondered if he can join me for my first visit to the London. Canada area.  All I hear about Ontario is its beauty.  Not upset about Raptors even tough I live near the Warriors.   Santa Rosa, Ca.   As of now i have 2 rooms at the Days Inn you suggested earlier.  Besides the 15.00 at the barn is there any other requirement.

Hello Dan,
I plan on attending while visiting my hometown Cleveland ,Ohio.  I told a friend of mine about my plans and he wondered if he can join me for my first visit to the London. Canada area.  All I hear about Ontario is its beauty.  Not upset about Raptors even tough I live near the Warriors.   Santa Rosa, Ca.   As of now i have 2 rooms at the Days Inn you suggested earlier.  Besides the 15.00 at the barn is there any other requirement.

Any meals we have during our driving around the area is up to you. I decided to have everyone order from the menu rather than setting up prepared meals. The $15.00 dollar fee is for Saturday afternoon at my place which will provide you with soft drinks, coffee, and relish trays. I'm looking into getting some musicians for Saturday night but that's not a definite yet. I find most people want to turn in early after a days driving and looking at cars so I'll try to have things wrapped up by 9:00 PM Saturday night.

We will need to start fairly early on Sunday morning so that we can be at RM Restoration by 10:00 AM  We can meet at a restaurant in nearby Wallaceburg around 8:00 - 8:30 AM. Drive to RM is about  35 - 40 minutes from there.

Raptors win was nice for them and the city of Toronto. I normally never watch basketball but I did watch most of those games which were interesting. You will find my area of Ontario to be a combination of small towns, a few larger cities, and miles and miles of farm land. My place is a working farm with fields surrounding the shop and other buildings. The drive to Sarnia will be nice as we will be driving along the St. Clair river and through the petrochemical operations just south of the city. The twin bridges at the mouth of the river are quite nice to see and further up is Lake Huron. If we are lucky we might get to see a lake freighter going under the bridge. The river is quite narrow at this point and you can see them from close up so bring your cameras.

Thanks for giving us the nod. I will be working a number of things over the next week and should have most of our plans pretty much sorted out. Looking forward to seeing everyone.
