  6. Techno Classica- Essen

    I was extremely excited during my 11 hour flight from LAX to arrive in Germany. This was going to be my first attendance at the largest classic car show held in Europe. I wanted to understand and get an appreciation for the value of the classic Mercedes-Benz in Europe. This show was a delightful treat. The show cars were impeccable and the hosts of the show put out the red carpet and treated their guest with the up most hospitality.

    At first when you arrive at the Convention center, it seems like a small gathering, until the itinerary is reviewed and you realize that there are thirteen showrooms with thousands of show cars displayed. The food vendors were spectacular!! How much better can it get than sitting in the midst of the most popular and sought after cars while drinking your German beer

  7. Classic Beauty – Mercedes Benz in Classic Film

    Over the years, Mercedes Benz has been putting out cars not only turning heads on the street, but also
    on the silver screen. Hollywood has looked to the iconic brand to symbolize class and embody wealth
    and refinement in its characters and on its sets.

    Here are some memorable models from the 50′s and 60′s that made appearances on the big screen:

    190 SL Roadster
    This two-door, 4-speed manual convertible was produced between 1955 and 1963. It featured double
    wishbone suspensions in the front and swing axles at the rear. It was used in the films High Society,
    starring Grace Kelly, Frank Sinatra, and Bing Crosby in 1956, and The Thrill of It All, starring Doris Day in
    1963. It has been featured in many other films in each decade ever since.
