As Arizona becomes the center of the automobile universe in January, we are again celebrating the classic car auction week with the Mercedes-Benz Enthusiast Dinner at Maggiano’s Little Italy Restaurant in Scottsdale.

This years event will be on Saturday evening, January 20th, 2017 at 16405 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale, AZ.  Activities start at 5:30 P.M. with the viewing and judging of the “People’s Choice” contest featuring MBCA members personal cars in our reserved parking area.  Following the voting, join us on Maggiano’s patio to mingle around some new Mercedes-Benz vehicles on display courtesy of Schumacher European.  The party then moves inside to the private dining room for a family style dinner service of some of Maggiano’s classic Italian dishes. We guarantee no one will leave wanting. Last, but not least, our after dinner program will feature industry experts to give their perspectives on the past week’s auctions and the current state of the classic car market. Bring your questions and join the discussion.

While the dinner caps off the week of auctions, we are planning guided tours to several of the auctions during the week. These tours offer “up close and personal” viewing of some of the exemplary cars being offered.  Tour group sizes are limited and we will provide updates on how to register as the information becomes available.

MBCA members from other regions, who are planning to be in town for the auctions, or just visiting at this beautiful time of year, are encouraged to participate in the events we have planned during the week and on Saturday evening.  Please make hotel reservations soon, as the auctions draw an international crowd and accommodations are best reserved early.
