C.A.R.S. Club, or College Automotive Restoration Students, is a student led club open to any McPherson student interested in antique and collector cars. The club gives students an opportunity to get together and share their passion for automobiles outside of the classroom. Club members are able to participate in numerous events throughout the year, including car shows, cruises, travel, old car movie nights, and insider trips to museums and private collections.

The culmination of the year is the student led C.A.R.S. Show in the Spring, where students plan their own large car show unlike anything else in the area, attracting participants from around the country.

Leading up to the 20th Annual McPherson Motoring Festival, George Reid talked with Francis Abate and his 1970 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3 he is restoring in the third episode of #ProjectSheds.
Hosted by George Reid and filmed by Sean Robinson.

From Francis, "They only made 6500 of these cars worldwide from 1968 to 1973 so there are not many left. They are part of a class known as M100 in Mercedes lingo as this is the engine model designation, a powerful V8 - the 6.3 was first used in the 600 Limousines of the 60s and 70s, the 300SEL like my car, and these were followed by a 70s/80s era 450SEL 6.9. These three cars are the only models designated as M100 cars and they have somewhat of a cult following, not super widespread. Currently it has rougly 120,000 Miles and counting"

McPherson may look like a hundred other small towns scattered across Kansas, but every May the students of McPherson College's auto restoration program turn it into something special.
