Wisconsin Section held its second virtual event, a tour of the Silver Arrow display on May 21st. The event was originally planned for the Wisconsin Club but 48 hours before show time the national club approached us about offering it to other clubs. We figured the more, the merrier!  So at 2:43 pm on the 20th national sent out the invite and Bruce’s inbox filled up quickly with questions about the event. Over 14 different sections reached out for information. After few technical learning opportunities the tour went off without a hitch. We had 114 members from 18 different MBCA Sections attend the tour. The tour started outside the Mercedes Benz Museum in Stuttgart,but instead of heading straight to the Silver Arrow display there was a slight detour to the top floor. The E8 floor is dedicated to the beginning of Daimler and Benz, a must see for  any visitor.

 

Next the tour headed to the Silver Arrow display area on the E2 floor. Photo Courtesy of Mercedes-Benz Museum  We started with the first Silver Arrow, the W25 from 1934 and over the course of the hour reviewed and discussed all the Arrows on display up to the 1955 W196S.

 

The club received many compliments for the tour. The comment “Fantastic and unprecedented accomplishment” from Gary Anderson of the Star was a great honor for the club.
