Our section was chartered on July 14 1982. Our geography includes San Luis Obispo County as well as the northern section of Santa Barbara County (Solvang north through SLO County). Our members own a wide variety of Mercedes-Benz automobiles, but ownership is not a requirement for membership. Our Section has two Authorized Mercedes-Benz Delaerships (Santa Barbara Auto Group & Alfano Motorcars), and two Independent shops owned by MBCA members (Nohr's Autohaus & Rizzoli's Automotive).
Our MBCA Section tries to plan varried events: from Wine Tasting to Driving Rallys, Technical Events to Theatrical Events. Many of our Section's events are "kid & family friendly", and many are also "open events" to allow perspective MBCA members a chance to "test drive" the best automotive enthusiaist club in the nation!
