BC Stars 2022 Show & Shine


The MBCA BC Stars would like to thank all our participants, organizers and volunteers, for making our first Post-Covid, Regional Show & Shine, a resounding success.

The Mercedes-Benz Langley dealership was a new venue for our show. As a partnership, the Dilawri Group of dealerships gave us full support.

Michelin Canada donated a set of tires, and Midland Appliances, a deluxe beverage fridge.

We really had a spectacular turnout, 100+ cars registered, and a whole range from elegant Classics to Modern exotics!!

Our Members enjoyed hosting the many local Benzcouver Gruppe, MB enthusiasts.

We were very pleased to welcome 12 Members from the Seattle Section who drove all the way up to Canada, to support us. We are thanking Ian Read who drove over eight hours from Alberta, just to attend.

Thanks to those who shared with us some exciting and rare Mercedes, a Cosworth EVO II, a Brabus 6x6 G-Wagon, and the strikingly beautiful, 1959 300SL Roadster !! Where else would you see all of these?!


“I want to thank everyone who came out to our 2022 Show & Shine, and especially Dilawri Mercedes-Benz Langley, our sponsors, Elton and the Benzcouver Gruppe, and our organizers Manfred and Marie Stenzel.  It is great to see enthusiasm for cars of all ages and types. We plan to organize fall activities and drives so stay tuned”  - Leigh Gayman, MBCA Section President, British Columbia
