2017 USX Plaza Mercedes Car Show

Wednesday June 21, 2017

As a special treat the US Navy Band will be playing during the lunch hour.  Below is a picture from the 2016 show illustrating how it is organized. The cars enter the plaza from Grant Street, at the corner of Sixth Avenue.  Building staff assist with entry and parking on the plaza. The cars will enter the plaza between 9:45 and 10:00am and are not permitted to leave until after 2:00pm for safety reasons.  We must be very strict about this.  There are drains in the plaza that must be bridged with the help of the building staff. All years and models of Mercedes are welcome.  If there are more cars than the plaza can handle, preference will be given to the old, rare, or unusual models.

Please register with me. I can be reached at:
