This is a “save the date” type of event for Mercedes-Benz Club of America Members, listed by the Mercedes-Benz Club of America Southern Stars Section and Southeast Region for member convenience. We are not the event hosts. You may also wish to follow the main event on Facebook here:; if you have a Facebook or Instagram account.
Event requirements from the hosts (Classic Motorsports Magazine):
All entries must be accepted by our selection committee. To submit your vehicle for acceptance, register for the event. All new registrations will automatically be wait-listed until evaluated and approved or rejected by the committee. Your card will not be charged unless your vehicle is accepted. Upload a photo and details of your car during registration to improve your chances of being selected.
Does this mean we won't accept common vehicles? Not at all--we've made this change to increase the diversity of the cars at our show, as we want to showcase the broadest range of vehicles possible.
What cars are we looking for? We're looking for classic sports and luxury cars, newer exotics, and classic 4x4s ...
Our plan is to fill the green space of Main Beach Park, just a few miles north of the Ritz-Carlton, with awesome cars and great people. Along the way, we’ll send some of the classic car world’s biggest celebrities through the field awarding prizes to their favorite cars.
Here are driving directions and a layout of the event!
