    Great!


    Also, this years marks the 50th anniversary of AMG so they will have 3 special classes this year:

    Class 7 for 1967-1992 pre merger cars, judged

    Class 8 for 1993-2008 post merger cars, judged

    Class 9 for 1967-present non judged AMG replica/tribute cars are allowed and welcome for display

    Jonothan is bringing the Hammer Wagon and Jano is bringing his sedan Hammer

    Kip will return to Monetrey with his 1993 500E Silver/Black, remember last year he took Best in Class 6 with his 1992 500E Pearl Black/Parchment

    Eric Bergstedt was awarded Best of Marque with his fully restored 1992 500E Silver/Grey with a perfect score of 100 points

    actually looks like the Wagon is getting snagged by the Classic Center, they want it for their setup on the Lawn..hard to say no to that..especially when it comes w/ all expenses paid!

    I may send out the Coupe though..We'll see how the next few months pan out!

    I'll be there for at least a few days.

    Jonathan, I hope Classic Center will allow your wagon to head over to Legends on Friday. However, your coupe sounds great. Either way, looking forward to see everyone at Legends.

    I should be able to make it again this year. Had a great time last year, learned a lot, and trying to get one of my co-workers to tag along. Eric's car was so gorgeous last year, and great to see the official photos in Star magazine later in the year. I pointed out the missing sticker on his radiator overflow tank to be a ball buster, having recently changed mine, I think he had the original one in his pocket! ... they delaminate and no way to put it back on, incredible).

    I have begun putting plans into place to attend Legends again this August. Fortunately, the weekend (again this year) coincides with a planned business trip to San Diego.
