What is an enthusiast...
The person with a show car... the lucky individual who just purchased a barn find... the daily driver...the parent who just dropped off the kids to soccer... or the person realizing a childhood dream. An enthusiast can be defined as anyone who has a genuine interest in the preservation of Mercedes-Benz automobiles, their history and engineering excellence.
Your MBCA National Enthusiast Committee has created a worthy campaign of programs that are designed for all enthusiasts. These programs provide benefits and assistance for all Mercedes-Benz aficionados. What is the MBCA Enthusiast Team? It is a compendium of people with great enthusiasm, intense passion and a formidable knowledge about the marque - whose role is to provide accurate information, positive experiences, fun and assistance to all Mercedes-Benz Enthusiasts.
We invite you to explore and enjoy the many programs offered to you as an enthusiast.
