Classic car repair.
Mercedes-Benz Classic car enthusiasts can now order parts, purchase or sell vehicles, get repairs, or have their automobiles appraised at a U.S.-based vintage car-care facility. According to Klaus Ulkann, vice president of customer service for Mercedes-Benz USA, "A toll-free number was set up at the end of 2000 specifically to handle inquiries for vintage parts and technical information. We received so many calls from owners and dealers that we were further convinced of the need to develop a customized service for these cars." The center will probably be located in Southern California. For details, see Mercedes-Benz's Website (www.mbusa.com) or call toll-free 1-866-MBCLASSIC.
