Welcome to the M.B. Classic Car Club (Incorporated), covering Hunter Valley, lower North Coast and Central NSW.
Officially formed on 12th March 1988, it was decided at the first meeting that the Club’s motto would be as follows:
“To preserve and restore the classic model Mercedes-Benz cars, and have fun doing so.”
That spirit of exuberance very much continues to this day. It is a club that doesn’t take itself too seriously. But still has a genuine passion for Stuttgart’s vehicles, both old and new.
Our current membership is over 100 people.
The club is a “not for profit” organisation administered by volunteers and has designated office bearers such as President, Treasurer, Secretary, an Executive Committee and general members.
It has a formal Constitution, a copy of which is available to anyone upon their request. Full, applicable insurance coverage is maintained each financial year.
We attempt to have our diverse events held at times that suit club members. Hence, they take place both during the week and at weekends. The activities cover Newcastle & Lake Macquarie cities, the Hunter Valley and the Central Coast areas of NSW. Our premier event is the annual All German Day “Autofest” held normally in May of each year. This is a large display of German car brands that attracts significant numbers of entrants, spectators and sponsors.
The club holds membership meetings regularly where we discuss new events, the latest issues for member’s consideration and as general “meet and greet” gathering. There are usually one or two social drives a month interspersed with technical days.
We enjoy combining with other car clubs, including Mercedes-Benz based ones, from time to time.
The club is recognised under the NSW Historic Registration scheme, with around 75 of our club members vehicles utilising the benefits that this initiative brings.
Our main committee members are currently:
- PRESIDENT – Roger Wakefield
- VICE PRESIDENT – David Straw
- SECRETARY – Ken Wakefield
- TREASURER – John Walker
- PUBLIC OFFICER – Barry Johnson
- MEMBERS REGISTRAR – Ken Wakefield
- NEW MEMBERSHIP – Alan McLean
- EDITOR, NEWS LETTER – Alan McLean
