I am extending an invitation to all M-100 Group members to Legends of the Autobahn, August 18th, at the Nicklaus Club during Monterey Car Week. As a former M-100 group member and 6.9 owner, I want to esnure we have a good showing of M-100 automobiles on the field!

This year Legends celebrates 50 Years of AMG with special classes for Pre-Merger, Post-merger and Modern AMG.

Register your car at this link: https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/mbca-legends-of-autobahn-2017-nicklaus-club-monterey-303264

This event is FREE for spectators, making it the best deal during Monterey Car Week. The Registration deadline is Aug. 7th.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Allen: I will be there again. Several years ago, my 6.3 was the only M-100 there, but it was in the parking lot. Last year I served as an MBCA judge of 190SL &c class. My 190SL was in the parking lot. This year I will enter the 6.3 as a non-judged participant.

I'm hoping with the 50th anniversary of AMG that there will be a large presence of those cars there along with M-100 cars. I think last year the only M-100 car there was in the parking lot. I will be entering my 1993 500E. Otherwise I'd be bringing my 6.3.

Hi Kip, We have a great mix of authentic pre-merger AMG on the entry list so far, including the legendary Hammer and a few other surprises. Hoping to see some M-100 cars on the show field!

Jack/Allen --I could possibly make the time to have a 6.3 somewhere other than the parking lot --but I wouldn't want to have the 6.3 judged.
This is a possibility? And if Kip's 6.3 is here, it could possibly be driven down --his car is worthy of a judge.

Michael and Allen: I want my 6.3 in the general appreciation field as well. Not a show winner but a nice car.

MPM - thanks for the compliment, although I think it's kindly optimistic. Judged or not, it would be nice to have a decent presence of M-100 cars for the AMG 50th Anniversary. Is it possible to have an M-100 corral? Maybe even a storyboard for people who have no idea how these cars came about?
I've seen the Hammer that's coming up and it's quite nice. Jeff (not an M-100 member) has what I believe to be the only AMG E60 W210 car in the U.S. Last I heard he was planning on bringing it. It's truly stunning to see IRL.

I may be interested in driving my 600 down from San Francisco to shine and show (but not judged).

I don't remember any 600s appearing the last two years. We could have a M-100 shine and show. Hope Allen sees this post.

Hi all, I can create a M-100 area on the main show field. This would be a non-judged area, but you would be on the main field next to the AMG cars and other judged cars.

Let me know who is interested, and I will group your cars together.

Allen --Just got off the phone with Kip --looks promising for at least 3 6.3s including Jacks for that Friday morning. I'll give Brian Glus a call and see what his plans are. The fellow from SF with his 600 makes four --maybe John Erbe wants to make a day trip with his 6.9.

Allen, this is shaping up well for an M-100 group. Do you still have your 6.9?

Jack, sadly I sold my 6.9 a few years ago. Would like to have a 6.3 someday, I asked Kip to be on the look out for me. :)

I am setting up a corral for the M-100 group on the Legends web site. Will post a message when it is ready.
