Mercedes-Benz made history by building the world’s first automobile and creating some of the most famous race and production cars over more than 130 years. It continues to manufacture some of the finest sports and luxury cars while driving industry innovation and developing future mobility solutions. Part of Mercedes-Benz USA, the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center in Southern California is a guardian to the Mercedes-Benz tradition while also providing day-to-day care for the Mercedes-Benz vintage car market. Opened in June 2006, the Classic Center has been the first classic vehicle service and restoration facility created by an automotive manufacturer in the United States. We sincerely thank Mercedes-Benz USA for its financial support and for bringing along some samples of its great products for participants whose cars fail and for being so good to work with throughout the year. A very generous financial contribution from Mercedes-Benz USA makes up a significant portion of The Colorado Grand’s charitable donations each year. Michael Kunz, general manager of Mercedes-Benz Classic in the United States, will be joining us for the Grand along with additional Mercedes-Benz guests.
