2019 Show n Glow


This year’s show was held on Sunday, August 4th at Veteran’s park in Milwaukee.  For those of you who have never attended you missed a great event with 300 cars encompassing a wide range of classic cars to daily drivers.  The Mercedes group came out in force with a total of 22 vehicles from Wisconsin and Illinois in the paddock.   The weather was perfect and the Concours had both high end cars (a 1937 V16 Cadillac owned by Hagerty) and preservation cars (a totally original 1953 Corvette owned by Ernie von Schledorn).  There were cars from the brass era all the way up to 2019 autos.  A great time was had by all!


At this years 2019 Milwaukee Concours the Mercedes Benz Club of America - Wisconsin Section held an informal concours judging of 9 beautiful Mercedes Benz for the registered participants.  The Judges Mr. Sovann Khong and Mr. Kyle Mahan judged the cars with strict dedication to the ICJAG score sheet.  All cars were beautifully presented and carefully detailed.  Special Thanks to Mr. Don Reidy for the donation of the Award Plaques.  A big thanks goes to all those who participated.  The club looks forward to next year’s event with hopes for even more participation and an expansion to more segment classes for judging.  Many thanks to Andrew Opicka for arranging the judging of the cars!
