Danny is the proud owner of 25 Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Not all of them are in his museum: two are used as brand ambassadors for his company, others are used in day-to-day life.
The time that he spent working from home in 2020 spurred him to find even more memorabilia for him to pair up with his models. And so he reached out to two Germans, among others, bought books from the 1920s, brochures, badges, technical drawings, Christmas baubles. “I acquired a whole host of treasures and stored them all at home.” The idea for his own museum came to him one day when he felt there was a chasm between his cars and the materials that went with them.
“It was like the connection was gone. There were brochures and pictures piled up at home – while my cars were somewhere else under protective fabric covers,” says Danny, who started the interior work on the former storage area at the end of 2020. Once the car lift ordered in China was finally delivered in the spring, Danz Benz was soon ready for business.
