(The Joy of Everything Mercedes)
The MBCA’s brand new National Event, Mercedes Freude, was held at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, the first week of November. Adding to the club’s largest attended National Event were several St. Louis Gateway Section members. After four days of receptions, educational seminars, day trips, competitive rallies, and a final banquet, most members stayed on for Legends of the Autobahn and the renowned Hilton Head Island Concourse d’Elegance. St. Louis Gateway Section member, Ed Knoll, won both the overall People’s Choice award and Best-In-Class at the Concours and Rick Siefert won Best-In-Class at Legends of the Autobahn.
