Event Description: 

 

PLEASE NOTE: A ticket must be purchased via the SHOWCLIX website (Link below) prior to arriving.

Tickets are not sold on site, and no admission will be granted without a ticket.

 

The Brumos Collection is a fascinating place filled with many aspects of automotive history with cars from three centuries!

 

The Brumos Racing Team car collection is also featured! Come out and see a prototype Prosche 959, or the Mercedes Transporter, nicknamed "Buster" that transported many racing cars, and many other "nearly priceless" cars!

 

The Brumos Collection has two sections. The first is a collection of open cockpit race cars and early automotive innovations. And apart from the cars, there’s vintage equipment and drivers’ gear. When you go through the second section, you’ll find a collection of rare Porsche race cars from 1953-2017. You’ll also come across some legendary race trophies and awards.

 

“When the team at Brumos decided to bring this collection to life, the decision was based on more than just showcasing the cars themselves. Although the collection does represent some of the most historically significant cars you’ll ever see, we also wanted to recognize the drivers and the inventors behind these incredible machines,” the museum notes.

 

MBCA Southern Stars Members, please look out for the Evite RSVP.

Art
St. Augustine
Florida
283 San Marco Avenue
32084
Event Description: 

 

Art 'n  Motion was dreamed up to appear as an early 1900's industrial-style building. Sitting just within the St. Augustine city entrance, this building needed to fit in with the feel of the nation's oldest city but also stand out as an old "Main Street" building would.

Art 'n Motion was created to display classic and rare automobiles that are available for sale. Many of the vehicles are collected by the founders but car owners will often display their rare car in the building's "showroom" to display for other car lovers and collectors. Art 'n Motion's floor-to-ceiling windows facing the main road show off the vehicles and attract car lovers on a daily basis.

 

We'll begin to gather at the parking lot next to the brick building, the white, one story building, south of the new brick building.

 

Art 'N Motion will be open for us to browse their inventory, and event spaces!

 

MBCA Southern Stars Members, be on the lookout for an Evite to RSVP!

Event Description: 

Happy 58th birthday to the W113 SL “Pagoda”! We celebrated in style, on March 13th, of course!

            MBCA Southern Stars Section & Orange Park Mercedes-Benz co-hosted a Mercedes Cars & Coffee, celebrating the 58th anniversary of the Pagoda, introduced at the Geneva Motor Show on March 14, 1963!

            Not only does the Mercedes W113 Pagoda turn 58 the weekend we had the Cars and Coffee, our VIP (Very Important Pagoda), turns 50 this year! Member Carlos Malpartida shared his stunning 1971 Anthracite Gray W113 to an adoring crowd. We are convinced everyone in the  dealership came out to get a glimpse of this beauty! It’s all about sharing our passion, knowledge and appreciation of these well-engineered Mercedes!

            Several younger Mercedes SL’s joined us to celebrate! Brand new member (of two days), Rob Kluba shared his Iridium Silver Metallic AMG SL65 with us. It was our only V12 that day! Member Gene Gorman shared his ultra-low-mileage Obsidian Black Metallic AMG SL55, Section VP Dave Wommer shared his Iridium Silver Metallic AMG SL63, Rob Schlessinger shared his 2005 Diamond Silver SL500, and Jeff Rotatori shared his Brilliant Silver Metallic 1998 SL500.

          Southern Stars Section brought a couple dozen donuts, and Orange Park Mercedes-Benz provided the coffee and beverages for our guests. Members and customers chatted with owners, sharing some history and tech tips! Members and guests were happy to enjoy camaraderie, on a beautiful Florida Winter morning with temps in the low 70’s! We spoke of our next Drive & Dine event being held Amelia Island & Fernandina Beach region and shared some cake to celebrate Treasurer Jackie Keener’s birthday!

            The remaining stars of the Cars & Coffee included a green 1995 E320 Cabriolet shared by Sheldon & Gail Hofferman to help us celebrate St. Patrick’s Day weekend! A 2011 E550 sedan shared by Paul Eckbreth (the only non-roadster in his collection), a gorgeous 2012 Black E350 Sedan shared by Cory McRea, (also the only non-roadster Mercedes in his collection!) a pristine 2006 E320 CDI shared by Mark Cummins (the only sedan in his Mercedes collection)! It was a very special weekend all around!

            President Chase Jackson shared his E550 Cabriolet, Treasurer Jackie Keener shared her GLC300, and Secretary Mary Ann Baugh shared her GLK350 – both of the SUV’s were filled to the brim with literature, donuts, the section tent, table, several chairs, our MBCA banner, and our new point of sale or lease member recruitment opportunity!

            Our new Membership Director Gary Keener designed and printed a spectacular point of sale display using local resources and printing facilities that features QR codes for touchless interactions and exploration with the national and local club! Gary also constructing a double-sided display stand, featuring a translucent display pocket to hold MBCA brochures. The display showcases local club member cars, as well as our “Drive & Dine” and “Cars & Coffee” event.

            We’ve had the opportunity to work with the new General Manager of Mercedes-Benz of Orange Park, Moe Ghanimah, and over the course of a couple of months developed goals and discussed specifics to arrive at a fantastic final product! The first display is in the customer delivery area to allow vehicle owners and lessees to learn about the Mercedes-Benz Club of America, networking with local enthusiasts, and reaping the many benefits of MBCA membership!
