After a year's hiatus, we’re joining with the local Western Michigan Section and more MBCA members to show our cars on Saturday, July 10, 2021 at the 9th Annual Deutsche Marques: a gathering of German cars, owners, and enthusiasts at the Gilmore Auto Museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan. New and old friends will converge for an All German Auto Event that will feature everything from daily drivers to weekend treasures on the museum grounds, with unlimited access to one of the nation's most fantastic auto museums.

Chicagoland Section will also be offering MBCA Silver Star Certification for Mercedes-Benz 25 years old or older that are largely original and have been unrestored since new, to provide special recognition to driver-quality cars that have withstood the ravages of time, climate and daily driving, but aren’t “concours queens.”

On Friday, July 9, the evening before the event, we are seeking interested members to join us for dinner in Kalamazoo at  Webster’s Steakhouse, and we are still waiting to confirm when restrictions will be lifted.  We have also secured a discounted room block at the Radisson Hotel in Kalamazoo, which offers indoor parking for our cars.  The Gilmore Car Museum is just twenty minutes from I-94 and US-131, located midway between Detroit and Chicago and a short drive from Kalamazoo.

Contact [email protected] to register and confirm your participation and we will provide you with registration forms and hotel and restaurant details as soon as they are available.
