On Sunday 21st October, 2012 , we propose to meet again in larger numbers. All classic and vintage mercedes owners are personally invited ! Owners may please help and quickly SMS 09845194814 their mercedes car registration numbers , class & model , year of mfg , colour and owners' name & address, and help us keep all better informed about the same and everything important in future.

Vinay,

It would be nice if you can post larger pictures.

Any W201s that came for the meet ?

srini,

I shall try to post the larger pictures soon.

Several w124s and w140s and a w123 were there & there was a dark blue 190D that came briefly last time. Hope to see the car again. I may also bring my w201 white 190 this time.

All those who couldn't come last time, must come this time to enhance the quality of the meet. Bangalore has always been home to dozens of gleaming Mercs. It would be great to see all those Pontons, Fintails, Compacts & 123s again this time. Would definitely make my day! Benz owners please spare some time and display your prized wheels.

Recently, it was debated whether the 80s VW golf was a 'classic' car. Many varied views. In the same spirit, really how 'classic' is a w201 (190) of the 80s? I invite opinions of all.

Thanks.

The W201 in my opinion is a modern classic!
