Scheduling events can be a gamble with the date and the weather.  Saturday, May 14th the weather cooperated with 80+ degrees and sunny all day.  Nineteen cars participated in this first Mercedes Car Show at The Corners. A nice assortment of models from David Youngblut’s, 1984 380SE Sedan to a 2022 EQS450 fresh from ElmBrook Mercedes by Harold Block.

The Corners is an excellent venue with extremely helpful staff and security. Roads are blocked for street-like parking and visitors wander through the car display on the way to retail locations.

The club gained public exposure as current STAR magazines and membership applications were made available thanks to Cindy Tumbleson at the National office. Nancy Pearson had packets organized for each attendee that included these items and a description card and a door prize ticket. Member Olaf Jentzsch of Flitz International contributed sample packets of polish that were also included in the packets.   Nancy said she talked with about 5-6 people that inquired about membership during the show. One signed up on the spot.

The entrants had the choice to display their cars or have them judged.  The judging was kept uniform and simple. Following a prepared outline, three judges reviewed and scored the entries. The following award plaques were presented:  Best in Show – Tom & Lori Gass, 2004 SL500;  Runner Up - 2017 AMG GLS63; Best Interior – Bill Herrema, 2006 SLK55AMG; and Best Exterior – Michael Stephens, 2007 CLK63AMG.

Additionally, a special award winner was selected and presented by The Corners of Brookfield, CEO, Robert Gould. Robert has owned Mercedes and selected a car reminiscent of his former AMG C32. Dick and Nancy Kusch have a 2019, AMG C43 Coupe that was presented “Gould’s Favorite” award by Mr Gould, personally.

The Pearson’s chose Waukesha County Sheriff’s K-9 group as a charity recipient of the show.  Deputy Thompson and K-9 TITO were present.  TITO is representative of four dogs in the department. It was a warm day for them, but, we appreciate being present.  Believe us, you don’t want to be running from this German Shepherd. K-9’s have proven to save officer lives and have a huge success record of getting the bad guys!

Door prizes were contributed by ElmBrook Mercedes Benz, and Flitz International. 

These shows are fun events that promote comradery within the membership and general awareness in the community.  Thank you to everyone for their participation and attendance.
