I got a newsletter from MB Classic Center, and I found an interesting article, that I wanted to share with you fellow R129 forum members. Hopefully, some would find it also interesting to go and watch the event. If there are any interested, I'd like to fly in and join the fun

Legends of the Autobahn
Legends of the Autobahn, the all‑German Concours, returns to Monterey Car Week on August 24th. For 2019, the Mercedes‑Benz Club of America celebrates 30 years of the R129 SL model series with a special display. The Mercedes‑Benz R129 marked the fourth generation of the SL and was revealed in March 1989 at the Geneva Auto show. The successor to the iconic R107 SL, the new SL was a milestone of technology and is today a popular young classic from coast to coast.
The Legends of the Autobahn event features a judged Concours, Silver Star Preservation class, and display‑only Corral. For event information and to register your classic Mercedes‑Benz, please visit the link below.
Legends Of The Autobahn® Presented by Michelin
Legends Of The Autobahn® is an all-German marque Concours d’Elegance held at the prestigious The Club at Pasadera during Monterey, California’s famed Pebble Beach Concours week.
Legends is hosted by the BMW Car Club of America, the Mercedes-Benz Club of America, and the Audi Club of North America. The annual concours event offers both corral and judged areas, awards for all three featured marques, and an open class for all other German-made cars. The show field also features displays from manufacturers, sponsors, and vendors, along with several lunch options, and an available breakfast.
Each year, the concours draws over 400 registered cars and over 3,000 spectators that fill the fairways of the The Club at Pasadera. Spectators are regularly greeted by rare and historically significant models, as well as factory-prepared specials.
The Legends Of The Autobahn® concours has become a national sensation among German car enthusiasts with widespread coverage in the automotive media. In 2011 the event gained international recognition with the North American debut of the BMW 328 Hommage concept car. In 2012 we saw the debut of BMW’s Zagato Z4 Roadster concept, and in 2014 we saw the unveiling of the highly-anticipated M4 GTS concept car.
Spectator admission is FREE. Parking fee is $20 per vehicle.
