Newsletter No. 137.
Hello everyone, it has been awhile since the last Newsletter I
know. Same old story, so busy with customer orders and activities in
the workshop that the time to sit down and do the Newsletter just seems
to not happen. We do find enough time for some updates to the
Facebook site as this is only 5 minutes at a time, as opposed to the
hours that its takes to do the full version of the Newsletter.
So rather than no Newsletter at all I thought that the best idea would be
to post up a monthly summary of the more interesting Facebook links as
well as the lists of cars for sale and dismantling. You do not need
a Facebook account to view the pictures. So here goes:
Pictures from the ACT club Concours
Pictures of the
London to Sydney Marathon carwe are building a replica of.

And continuing the theme on brakes
we had this. Please don't do you own brakes unless you know what
you are doing.
Don't forget Spanners and Sausages next Tuesday night.
Every year we have held an event for the local ACT Mercedes-Benz club.
Which for the last ten years has become known as "Spanners &
Sausages", and to use the club Presidents words "it is one of the
highlights of the clubs calendar". The basic format is that after work on
the second Tuesday of November we enjoy some refreshing drinks and
gourmet sausages. This is followed by a tour of our facilities and a
presentation. To get an idea of what these events are like
you can find pictures from last years event
here. The event draws club members from as far away as
Sydney and beyond.
So, this year you are all invited to attend and celebrate 20 years of MB
Spares and 20 years of Spanners & Sausages. It is to be held on the
11thof November, starting off at 6pm. We are normally done by
9-9:30pm. We will need to get some ideas on numbers so if you
are a club member there is no need to RSVP. If you are not you can RSVP
any time up until the 5pm on the 10thof November by
The event is also listed on ourFacebook
page, so if you wish you can RSVP there.
