Mercedes-Benz Tech Session

June 7-8, 2003 / Blacklick, Ohio

Hello Vintage Mercedes Enthusiast !

The Vintage Mercedes-Benz Tech Session will be held on June 7th and 8th, 2003 in Blacklick, Ohio (Columbus area). It will be jointly sponsored again this year by the W113 Pagoda SL Group (international) and the Central Ohio Section of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America. Last Year's event drew vintage Mercedes owners from many states and overseas. An article on the event with photos was published in the United Kingdom Mercedes-Benz Club in Great Britain.

This year's Tech Session has been expanded to two days by popular demand and will host a very nice collection of vintage Mercedes-Benz cars and their owners. Cees Klumper, the president of the W113 Pagoda SL Group will travel from the Netherlands again this year for the event. The format is "hands on" and informal. The W113 230SL, 250SL, and 280SL will be the main feature, although much information will be relevant to other vintage Mercedes-Benz cars. An automotive detailing expert, Bob Geco (The Star May/June, 1994) will travel from Los Angeles to give a mini seminar on auto detailing. We expect many other experts and suppliers in this field to share information and demonstrate their abilities. Numerous vintage Mercedes engines, transmissions, an other mechanical assemblies will be on hand for dissection and discussion. Owners, enthusiasts and suppliers are welcome. The event is unique and very worthwhile.
