There is an old saying that goes “It is hard to appreciate the road in front of you if you go through life with your back to the engine.” While there is a lot of truth in this saying, and while I am sympathetic to the need to not over-romanticise the pastor live in some vintage nostalgic haze, there is also a great deal of truth to the saying “They just don’t make’em like they used to.” There is something about a quality vintage vehicle that simply cannot be matched by anything in the present. The key here though is quality, and when I say quality, I mean Mercedes-Benz . This is why I love the Mercedes-Benz Classics division.
Based out of Irvine California, this little known wing of the German auto maker exists for the classic automobile enthusiast. The classics division covers all of the bases, wether one would need a hard to find part, a daily driver, or a fully restored collector show car. Keep in mind, this is not an aftermarket company, these are official Mercedes-Benz technicians whose job it is to restore Mercedes-Benzs to their “factory settings”, so it will be like new, as if you are viewing it on the lot, fresh from the assembly line.
So, in a way, if you were to find a refurbished vehicle from Mercedes-Benz classics, returned to a state no different than the day the final bolt was put into place, and you were to dress appropriately for the given year of the car, you can, in a way, time travel. Of course this is going by a very loose definition of time, but still, it sounds pretty great to us here at Vroom.
Phoenix Valley auto enthusiasts can view and test drive any current production model Audi at any Phoenix Valley Mercedes-Benz dealer. Phoenix Valley auto enthusiasts should plan on attending the Phoenix Arizona International Auto Show to learn about the most recent concepts and innovations from Mercedes-Benz , as well as the rest of the auto industry, taking place at the Phoenix Arizona Convention center over Thanksgiving weekend.
