Get your Deutsche Marque Entry Ready for May 5th!

Mercedes-Benz of Tyson’s Corner

8545 Leesburg Pike, Vienna, VA 22182

Mercedes-Benz of Tyson’s Corner, a Deutsche Marque Sponsor is helping us prepare for the upcoming 30th anniversary of the Deutsche Marque Concours d’Elegance with this event, a Detailing School, designed to get our cars (Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and BMW’s) ready for the May 5th show.

Though M-B of Tyson’s is hosting, Odds & Ends Detailing will be presenting the school. This is a great way to get to know both of these sponsors a little better, and we very much appreciate both of their help with this the 30th Anniversary of the Deutsche Marque event.

In this detailing school, attendees will gain hands-on knowledge that they can take home to prepare their Deutsche Marque entry. Learning some tricks of the trade to help you spend the next few weekends preparing your car for the concours. This will be more than a brief explanation of the detailing process; it will be a chance to bring your problems to the expert for advice on what you can do to make your German marquee Car stand out from the rest. Plan on trying out some new products and techniques!

We have set this event up, after work, on a Thursday night, so you will have a chance to work on your car the following weekend. So join us for a beer, a glass of wine, and some light fare, and lots of in-depth car talk.

This event is open to all Deutsche Marque participating clubs, BMW, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz Club members. Registration is $15 paid to MBCA | GWS, either on the gws-mbca.org website, or with a check mailed to the M-B Club.

In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books.
