The Third Annual All-German Car Show will be hosted by Harbor Hills Country Club on Saturday, October 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. “Show & Shine” will include up to 150 vehicles. Sponsoring Villages clubs are Mercedes-Benz Club of The Villages and The Villages BMW Z Club. The show is open to all German vehicles.
Mike Roth, President of the M. Benz Club of The Villages explains that his affinity for German cars is due to their high level of engineering excellence and craftmanship. German auto production also excels in safety and technological advances. In 1978, while scouting for the “cheapest luxury car in California,” Roth became the proud owner of a 1979 Mercedes-Benz 300 SD Turbo Diesel. He enjoyed his green-silver ride for the next 13 years. Joining The Villages community in 2017, Roth’s love of the brand inspired him to create the M. Benz Club. Starting with only one other like-minded neighbor, the club now boasts 290 members.
In keeping with the Octoberfest theme, entertainment will be provided by The Villages German Band. Vendors including Mercedes-Benz of Gainesville and Gettel Automotive Group will offer products and services. Trophies will be awarded for Best of Brand and second and third places in addition to Best of Show. Lunch and beverages can be purchased at Harbor Hills Country Club. Registration is $35 per vehicle. After October 1, registration is $50 per vehicle.
All proceeds support The Villages Dollars for Scholars. College and vocational scholarships are awarded to students who are local residents. Their mission is to help our local students achieve secondary education through accredited universities, colleges, community colleges and technical or trade schools.
