Mercedes-Benz is being featured as one of the featured marquees at the 34th Annual Arthritis Foundation Classic Car Show.  This is for the 90th anniversary of 1926 merger and creation of the Mercedes-Benz brand.  Our section decided to make this a big MBCA event and got approval from National to classify it as a Regional Event.  MBCA is going to organize a Show Within a Show and perform MBCA Concours Judging to those who register their cars for such.
The event put on by the Arthritis Foundation ( is actually three days.  They handle all registration for all parts of the event.  Thursday is a driving day, an opportunity to stretch the legs of the classic cars.  Friday is a non-registration, pay at the gate style cruise-in.  Judges award large (6 feet tall) trophies to the most interesting or special cars that show up.  Saturday is the proper car show with vehicles organized into classes.  Most judging is condition & cleanliness, but clubs can have a show within a show for their marquee and perform their own judging as they see fit.  We will be doing that with MBCA judging rules.
Activities organized by MBCA for this event will be:
- A membership tent at the cruise-in and at the car show.
- An autocross on Sunday morning/afternoon at a near-by parking lot.
- In discussion is a Friday welcome reception.
