  • This year marks the 43rd annual Farberallye, and this Fall event loosely translated in German as “rally in the color” will be back after a Covid hiatus in 2020. Plans are underway now for a spectacular event including a driving ralllye with time/distance and clues competitions, through some of the most beautiful fall foliage imaginable, a welcome reception, and an awards banquet.

    At the moment, as a result of the tremendous surge in travel interest pent up during the pandemic, we are still in the process of securing a headquarters hotel and room bloc, so check back here and watch your emails for further details.

    SAVE THE DATE- More details to follow. You won’t be disappointed, and plan on having a fun weekend in your car in one of the most picturesque areas in the NorthEast!

    Havasupai 2021 Rallye – October 22-24, 2021

    Rally masters - Ed and Annette Crawford

    We need to make a U-Turn!” “We’re off course!” These statements are often spoken between the driver and the navigator on a Desert Stars Rallye. We know this because Annette and I have personally said these words to each other on previous Desert Stars events. We must now use these words regarding the location and plans for the upcoming Havasupai 2021. We took a U-turn and the Fall Havasupai 2021 will now be taking fellow Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts to Northern Arizona. 

    Mark your calendar for October 22-24 for a weekend of fun and camaraderie with your fellow Desert Star members. Our accommodations on Friday and Saturday will be familiar to most members, as we converge on Little America Hotel located in Flagstaff, Arizona. We have negotiated a limited number of rooms at the special rate of $199.00/night (plus 11.18% tax). Registrants will need to book their hotel rooms directly with the hotel and for your convenience; the hotel has established an 800 number for reservations, which is 1-800-352-4386. When calling, please make sure to mention “Desert Stars Mercedes Benz Club” to receive the negotiated rate. Please note that your room and tax are the responsibility of individual member.

    The Havasupai 2021 registration fee is $249.00 per couple. Single/additional registrant fee is $125.00. Fees cover Friday evening’s appetizers, Saturday’s lunch, Saturday evening’s awards dinner and prizes for those that compete in the Rallye, and non-alcoholic beverages at meals. As with all Desert Stars events, alcoholic beverages are the members’ responsibility. Lastly, breakfast each morning is on your own. The weekend events will start late Friday afternoon with hosted appetizers. 

    On Saturday morning, we will, in essence, have two Rallye’s, the traditional, competitive rallye with prizes for the top 3 winners AND a “Relax- A-Rallye” where registrants can come and enjoy the camaraderie, scenic drives, and sharing meals together without feeling that they have to “compete”. Those choosing the “relax-a-rallye” will be provided with a map and timetable for the day to enjoy a more leisurely event, but will not be eligible for the rallye prizes/awards.

     

    Call Debbie at 480-268-9535 to register for the event and call Little America to book your room.

  • Once again, we are going to take our fall drive to Winnsboro, TX and it will be for the 65th Annual Autumn Trails Event which is an annual month-long event for the town.   Saturday the 23nd is for Antique Cars that begins with a parade into downtown.  For those interested after the parade they have three maps that follow the country roads outside of Winnsboro to view the fall leaf colors.  It will be a fun day with our club participating in the parade and the folks love us because we are one of two clubs that have candy for the kids.  The other club is the Model A Club. After the parade we will have lunch at Richie’s Grill & Café in Winnsboro, at 301 E. Coke Road, which is near downtown Winnsboro. The menu has Mexican and American items on the menu and a room is available for us. Just remember to bring candy, lots of candy to throw out to the kids on the parade route.  This has been a lot of fun for our club in the past; you won’t believe all of the cars especially the Model A’s and the kids on the parade route are the most fun of all.

     

    Meet for check-in at 8:00 AM at the QuickTrip gas station at 1400 E. Joe Ramsey Blvd, Greenville, TX. (It is at the southeast corner of HYW 69 and I-30 East in Greenville).  If anyone is lost call Ron Seifert’s cell phone at 972-824-0464.

     

    We will leave at 8:15 AM for Winnsboro. It is a 55-mile drive from Greenville and we form up for the parade in Winnsboro at 9:45 AM on  highway 11 leading into Winnsboro. It is important if we want to stay together to be there on time.  We must leave at 8:15 AM!

     

    I will pass out tour maps for those who want to drive the three back road tours/drives that they have outlined for the autumn trails. 

     

    After lunch you will be free to return home on your own schedule.

     

    The cost for the event/drive will be $10 per car, payable at check-in or PayPal.

     

    Don’t worry about not having an antique or classic car they welcome the MB Club participation.  For those with convertibles or antique restorations it will be a fun place to show your car and you can practice your special Royal hand wave for the crowd.  Put your section magnetic sign on your cars for the event if you have them.

     

    We are looking for a great turnout and this time of year should give us great driving weather and a nice day for a fall drive.

     

    Directions to Winnsboro

    If for some reason you are late or lost here are directions to Winnsboro.

    From the QuickTrip gas station take highway I-30 east to Exit 124 on to TX 154 at Sulphur Springs and go south to hwy 11 into Winnsboro.  Line up for the parade as you go into Winnsboro.  The cars will be lining up on the side of the road outside of the city limits so just get in line.  It is important that we try to stay together as you form the line.

  • Mercedes-Benz is celebrating an important fiftieth anniversary – the introduction of the original R107 SL. The 1971-1989 R107 SL ushered the roadster into the modern era.

    The Central Oklahoma Section of the MBCA is joining this celebration with an OKC Meet of area 107s. All MBCA 107 owners are invited to display your cars beginning at 9am on Saturday, October 23 at:
