Friends Friday - My Mercedes Club (March/April '19)

Photos from my last two Mercedes Club (Road Star Section) outings.   

Our March meeting was at the Mercedes Dealership located in North Palm Beach. We were given a private VIP tour of the dealership, including the maintenance shop. We had the owner and service manager's attention for over 45 minutes. There were lots of questions. Plus the dealership provided a nice lunch and trivia game with prizes.  

Our April meeting, thanks to Hartmut Fehyl, was held at  Renntech in Stuart, Florida. Hartmut is an amazing man who peruses his passion for cars; restoring, customizing, and racing. His specialty is Mercedes and he presented his recent tuning software enhancement. We saw many cars he is currently rebuilding, customizing and racing. Hartmut is shown talking about one of his race cars in the upper right photo. 

There were approximately 30 attending and following the tour at Renntech the group reconvened at Conchy Joe’s on the Indian River Lagoon in Jenson Beach for a very nice group lunch with prizes. 

I was the official photographer for these last two events. However, I was able to sneak into one by having someone take a photo. 

Coming up in May is our end-of-season bash; this year an elegant Saturday evening wine tasting. It will be held at a self storage wine vault where each wine vault is temperature controlled and has an individually decorated mahogany area with locks/alarms. According to their web site: "They go to great lengths and detail to provide your wine collection the best storage facility in Florida. Privacy and discretion is of the utmost importance to our clients. No one else can view your collection from the outside."  

This should be a fun and interesting evening. Stay tuned...

    Conchy Joe's is a great place to eat. I love their conch chowder with sherry.
