New Mercedes Benz Club House

Tomorrow (Saturday 20 Jan.) the Mercedes Benz Club of Thailand will have the grand opening of its club house here in Bangkok. It should be a pretty colorful event. It will start with the arrival of a few Buddhist monks. The monks will chant; following that the senior monk will apply five white dots to the front door which are meant to ensure that the club house will remain safe. Then the president of the Mercedes Benz Club of Thailand will cut the ribbon and the place will be ready for occupancy.

In America or in Europe do any of the Mercedes clubs have their own building? I think it is sort of unusual.

A few of the members of the club have some really nice cars. Here are a few photos from our club magazine, "Star of Siam".

Tomorrow, after the meeting I'll post some 'live' pictures.

Here are a few of the promised photos that I took of some of the MBs that showed up for the grand opening of the Mercedes Benz Club of Thailand.

I don't think so, Jayhawk. Most of the members are Thai....there are only a few of us 'farangs'. But they are a pretty educated lot; lots of them can speak English. Most of them prefer the classic cars.

Looking at the clubhouse, I'll just assume that your annual dues are more than the $50 or so for the MBCA.

What are the dues for membership? MBCA charges $45/year, and we get pretty much what we pay for. I keep telling them that MB owners would pay more, but they claim they lose members when they do that.

The dues are 1,000 baht per year, which works out to be about $28 per year.
