DeFuniak Springs

   In spite of rain to the north and a forecast of rain a large group gathered at the DeFuniak Springsexit from I-10 for a beautiful drive across Choctawhatchee Bay and along Florida 30Aconnecting the beach communities from Santa Rosa to Rosemary Beaches.   While Mercedes-Benz vehicles are very popular in this area, a column of several together attracted significant attention.

   The beautiful route was suggested by Scott Paul and Lawrence Pugh made arrangements for lunch with reserved parking together at Wild Olives in beautiful Rosemary Beach.   We attracted some new members and a couple from Ireland who still own the 280 SLC that he bought new in 1977 and still owns.   Our existing members ranged from the local area to Perdido to Birmingham   It is so gratifying to see so many of our members enjoying driving their Mercedes-Benz’s and getting to know each other.
