URGENT REQUEST!!!

Post by BustedNut » Wed 20 Aug, 2008 9:05 pm

G'Day Fella's

Recieved this via email yesterday.. I'm sure they would appreciate all the help they can get.

Mercedes-Benz Car Club of WA (Inc)

SPECIAL Email Newsletter
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
URGENT - PLEASE READ

This is a special request from the 2010 Rally Committee who require YOUR help.


PHOTO CALL

With the next Mercedes-Benz National Rally set to take place in Perth, the organizing committee is putting together a promotional DVD designed to attract interstate participants.

To this end, the committee Chairman Paul Blank is putting out a call to all members to bring out their Mercedes-Benz and smart cars for filming THIS SUNDAY (24th August) at 10am.

We will meet at Parliament Place in West Perth and then drive into Kings Park for filming at couple of locations there. After that the aim will be to drive down to Cottesloe Beach to film the cars there. We will need a range of moving and static shots of cars. Most important though, is that we have a big range of models there. In particular we need to get some of the pre-1970s cars along, because we can be sure of getting a good range of later cars. If you only have a later car, we still need you to bring it along please – the more cars the better. And they don’t have to be show-cars.

The whole shoot should only take about 2 hours, and we can have a coffee or lunch in Cottesloe afterwards.

The National Rally celebrates the 50th anniversary of our club, and will be the most significant event our club’s history. It is important that we get a big turnout of cars on Sunday so the promotional DVD can have the highest impact possible.

Hope to see you on Sunday.

Hey BustedNut,

I see that you have a Mercedes get-together this sunday, Whereabouts is parliament place in West perth? i'm never around that area. And I'm guessing it's just bring your car down to parliament place? Also is it ok for me to bring my car down even though it looks nothing like when it rolled out from the factory? or is it just original mercedes cars only?

Please let me know, am very intersted in showing up.

Thanks
Dazza

G'Day Dazza,

Paste - Parliament Pl, West Perth WA 6005, Australia - into Google maps and it'll show you where it is.. Only been there once myself, but had no trouble finding it..

Come on down mate, can't imagine anyone would mind that you've 'customised' your ride. Just need a interest in the Marque to be welcome.. :)

I'm tipping that it will be 'the more the merrier', I'm looking forward to it.

Cheers,

BustedNut

Got em!! :) Didn't take too many though. We had a great turn out given the short notice.. Probably close to eighty cars of various models.. Mine was the only 114 believe it or not, and as Daz pointed out there were only three or four 126's..

Have transferred the images to the machine, just need to shrink 'em down for the board. With any luck tomorrow..

Regards,

BustedNut

P.S Good to meet a genuine board member finally.. :D

Yes, there were quite a number of cars there,

All the way from 1930's ( i think?) to the 2000's, all ranging in a different variety, only took a couple of photos before my fone died on me...
The cars that really caught my eye:

59' Ponton
59' Red 250SE
W116 AMG 6.9
W124 Brabus coupe

The vehicles above are on my christmas wishlist....

As has already been said, not a bad turn out for a 'last minute' request.. Looking forward to seeing the 'promotional video' that they were putting together to coax all you Eastern states boys over for next years National Rally.. :D
