Tech Session with a bit of Stahl Motor Company History
by Peter Judy, Technical Director
Located in Historic Downtown Monterey, Stahl Motor Company was founded in 1928 by William Stahl as a Packard franchise. In June 1957 Stahl Motor Company (now Mercedes-Benz of Monterey) became the 1st authorized Mercedes-Benz dealership in California and the 2nd in the United States. It is still owned and operated by the Stahl family.
Many of us are familiar with the larger corporate owned Mercedes dealerships in the Bay Area and around the country. You will not find that here. What you will find is a dealership with a small town atmosphere and long time employees, some of whom have been here 40 years. This is one of a few dealerships that will still work on our classic Mercedes. And, they provide great discounts to our members.
So come join us on Saturday, January 23, 2016, for what will be an outstanding and informative session. Ken Brown, Certified Master Technician and Parts Manager, will address the Mercedes-Benz world wide supply chain: where parts are manufactured, how they are distributed to the dealers and us, and how I can still order a genuine Mercedes fender or hood for my 45 year old car. Ken will answer these and many other questions. Following this, Ken will give us a colorful history of the Stahl Motor Company covering its 87 years at the same location. Ken, by the way, is an MBCA member and a 30+year employee of the dealership.
Coffee and pastries will be provided at 9:30 AM. Ken's program will begin promptly at 10:00 AM.
Since there is no street parking, parking will be provided down a driveway to the left of the building in a lower parking lot.
Following the session, there will be an optional no-host lunch at a nearby restaurant for those who are interested.
Space is limited, so register early on www.motorsportreg.com if you want a chance to visit this very special dealership. You won't be disappointed.
