The San Francisco Bay Area MBCA chapter held a phenomenal event at Canepa Motorsports located in Scotts Valley, CA.
The day started early with a Cars & Coffee gathering in the parking lot where a record setting 60 members arrived in over 40 Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
Member’s cars ranged from a 1958 Ponton to a 2021 AMG GT and everything in between. Canepa displayed their new Brabus G63 700 6x6 alongside our cars to create a breathtaking visual collection of old and new.
The group then embarked on a 2-hour tour of the meticulous Canepa showroom, museum and restoration facilities. We were lucky to see two 300SL Gullwings among several other exotic classics being prepared for the 2021 Pebble Beach Concours.
With our hearts and minds filled to the brim, members proceeded to the Steel Bonnet Brewery for lunch with craft beers and enthusiastic conversations with our colleagues.
Safe to say, it was a fabulous event for our MBCA members and was enjoyed by all. A very special thanks to Mr. Bruce Canepa for his generosity by giving our members a no-limit tour for his collections at Canepa Motorsports, and especially, Mr. Sean Chambers for his excellent tour guidance throughout the day. - Ty McConney
