Mercedes Benz Tiger Club - Indonesia, W-123 Enthusiast !!!
Hi guys, greeting from the Island of Gods, Bali - Indonesia... My name is Iwan Diah, I'm the Founder and former chairman of Mercedes-Benz Tiger Club Indonesia. I would like to share and introduce our club as W-123 (Tiger) Enthusiast.
It all started back in 1998, where a small bunch of Mercedes-Benz W-123 owner park their car around the stadium parking area as an informal Sunday gathering.
As an owner and also enthusiast of W-123 model since new (my car was bought 1st hand in 1982), I was moved to see that this gathering of W-123 enthusiast and it can become more to a formal and yet a proper Club formation. So after taking to a few owners, I asked them to join me to expand the group of W-123 enthusiast and form a Mercedes-Benz Club.
After contacting and consolidating with some friends at Mercedes-Benz, precisely on 12th March 1999 we signed Rules and Regulation with other co-founder; hence the date 12-3, a club by the name of â€śMercedes-Benz Tiger Clubâ€ť was officially formed.
I was appointed as the President for two periods between 1999-2001 and 2001-2003.
The main motto of the club is to build togetherness among members and to threat all members the same for all their rights as a member in the club.
During the time, Mercedes-Benz Tiger Club (Tiger means a nick name for W-123 in Indonesia) has done so much activity, mainly social events to help the poor and to let them more close to the Mercedes-Benz brand image.
Since 1999, Mercedes-Benz Tiger Club or known as â€śMTCâ€ť, has been through regeneration for the fourth time, and this year it was the mark of our club 10th Anniversary. Also as the oldest official Mercedes-Benz Club in the country.
If you need to know more about the club, please donâ€™t hesitate to email me or call direct to Club Secretary at +62-21 94740123. Weâ€™ll be waitingâ€¦
