ATL Autoshow 2010

Has anyone heard if Mercedes will participate in the ATL autoshow for 2010?
Did Mercedes participate in the last 2009 Autoshow?

I went to the Nashville Autoshow last weekend which was a disappointment.
There were 16 manufactures at the Nashville show with about 8-10 types of cars in each. I knew it lasted only one weekend but I wasnt sure what to expect from the show. It was $8.00 a person to get in.

I'm not sure, but I've had the same frustrations with some of the Auto Shows I've been to and really don't attend anymore as a result.

It's funny that more and more antique cars are showing up at the "new car" auto show.
Don't get me wrong, I'm addicted to older cars but they belong at the "World of Wheels" or at the local drive-in with their hoods up on a Friday night.

Maybe someone with connections to the ATL Mercedes dealerships will have some insight to whether or not Mercedes will participate this year.

I went to the ATL auto show last year, but I was looking at the Z370's convertibles.
Funny story is while test driving the Z370's in Chattanooga, I drove past the Mercedes dealership and I noticed the SLK's for the very first time.
I returned the Z370 and bought the SLK280.
What an awesome car.

Awesome. Thanks for all the input.
Hopefully Mercedes will be there for 2010.

Sounds like a stroll down 75 to the 2010 auto show is in order...

Sorry to say, but my friend informed me that MB will not be at the 2010 ATL show. Hopefully he understood I meant MB and not ACC, but that is the answer he gave me.

I went to the Atlanta auto show and they had the SLS there.
Very nice car. It was roped off so you couldn't touch the car.

They had the normal fleet of Mercedes, but only the SLK350 no SLK55.

I went to the autoshow as well. Surprised that BMW wasn't there. The Audi R8 Spyder was amazing. You can see the Lamborghini cross over too! The Corvette ZR1 was pretty sweet too and we got some pics of the wife in the SLK!

That Spyder was awesome looking. It must be sweet to drive.
$106 for the ZR1 was a little high. I'd buy a 67 427 tri-power before I bought the ZR1.

I noticed something interesting walking through the show...it looked like Toyota had the plague. People would only looking at the pickups but not the cars.
