It could be your Mercedes!

 Our 2024 featured marque for DeutscheMarques this year is Mercedes-Benz. We are looking for the PERFECT car to go on our show posters.

There are very few requirements to submit a vehicle for consideration:

1. It has to be a Mercedes-Benz.
2. It can be in any condition - restoration-ready, or showroom new.
3. There has to be something COOL about it (model rarity, color, unique features...).
4. If it wins, it must be available by arrangement for photography by our official DM photographer.
5. If it wins, it must be present at our July 13 show, rain or shine.

Send us a good quality photo of the car you want to nominate. It can be your car or a car you know about and could connect us with the owner. Include a short description of WHY you believe this car should be on our poster. Nominations will go to our Board of Directors who will (argue at great length and) select the winning submission.

If you have a car or know of a car that should be considered, let us know! Please reach out via Facebook or email us!

Deadline for entries is Sunday, May 12 at noon.

Good luck to all!
