Southern Stars Section recently co-hosted a Cars & Coffee at Mercedes-Benz of Orange Park!


            We had a great variety of Mercedes-Benz vehicles shared! We had a gorgeous all-original 1971 280 SE Light Ivory over Brown cabriolet as the headliner of the event! Just over 1,200 V8 280 SE cabriolets were made, each by hand, and 1971 is the very desirable final year of production. A stunning 2021 E 63S wagon in Lunar Blue Metallic also was shared by Members Julia & Alan Roth which was a sight to see.


            Section President Chase Jackson shared one of his Mercedes-Benz vehicles, a gorgeous 2012 E 550 Cabriolet. Member Aleksandr Skriptov shared one of his Mercedes-Benz vehicles, a great Polar White 2020 GLE, Member Jackie Caravello shared one of her beautiful Mercedes-Benz vehicles, a 2016 SLK 250 and Membership Director Gary Keener also one of his family’s vehicles, his 2014 CLS 550. Vice President Dave Wommer shared one of his Mercedes-Benz vehicles, this time his 2014 E 550 4MATIC sedan. Regional Director Hank Webb and his wife shared one of their Mercedes-Benz cars, their 2008 Mars Red SL 550 that they bought new off the showroom floor at the same dealership! We even had the pleasure of seeing a new GLB 250 in Rose Gold, which is a rare sight to see! We also got to see a newly acquired Iridium Silver Metallic 2005 AMG E 55! It was a great day of conversation and networking. Thanks to everyone who shared your story with us!


            After admiring the cars that arrived and meeting new members, we talked about our next event, an Oktoberfest-themed Drive & Dine to the Yalaha Bakery in Yalaha, Florida, a German bakery offering live entertaining an amazing delicatessen, and many baked good to enjoy or to bring home! A perennial favorite of the Club! MBCA Southern Stars Section members, be sure to keep an eye out for your Evite invitation to RSVP! We will meet in Palatka, FL to have a shorter convoy time, and to encourage Members to enjoy a portion of the drive to the rendezvous point at their own pace!
