PA, MD, W VA, VA, Get together?

Sort of hijacked this thread from elsewhere but check this out:Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Association Mercedes-Benz will be honored as our 2007 Marque of the Year. What a great weekend for a get together. Also if you can stick around Monday and Tuesday you can get some track time in here:Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Association I won't be staying at the Embassy Suites since I have a condo at 7 Springs which is close enough for me. Anyone else?

Some of the Mercedes events seem to be for older "Classic" Benz but all in all I think everyone is welcome. I'll call and check.

Pittsburgh is only 250 miles from my WV town, and I am definitely interested. Please keep us posted.

Heard back from the event chairman..."You and your friends are all welcome in the Marque of the Year area to enjoy the event and celebrate Mercedes as our featured Marque. The Mercedes club is going to be within the Marque of the Year fairway this year, so you are welcome to register directly through our website and should not need to coordinate through the club. I look forward to seeing you all at the park soon! "
Tom

This weekend if anyone's interested. Read the entire web page from the first post. You don't have to spend $95 for the weekend unless you want to be in the special Benz section. For $20 you can be in the car show Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Association | Schenley Park Combined Car Show all weekend. FREE to watch everything. Check out the video on the home page for the 1954 Ferrari making a lap of the track last year. Also a great article about the 1957 300SL, here Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Association | 2007 Marque Mercedes-Benz some interesting comments about the collectability values of Benz's
