Lightbulb AB takes in another Toys for Tots drive with a decidedly German flavor

Click above for a huge high-res gallery of pics from the Schnuerer Toys for Tots drive

We spent this past Sunday running all over the Southland, joining other auto enthusiasts in collecting toys for needy kids. Our first stop was the 5th Annual Motor4Toys event up in the Valley, and then we stopped over at Gerhard and Rosemarie Schnuerer's own Fifth Annual Charity Event and Antique Vehicle Show at their mini-museum in Huntington Beach. While the Motor4Toys event was the biggest toy drive we've ever been to, Gerhard's party was equally special, just on a smaller scale.

Co-sponsored by Mercedes-Benz USA, it's a great event that allows the public inside the Schnuerer's impressive collection of classic European automobiles and motorcycles. Their concours-level inventory of vehicles include a 1918 Opel Dual Cowl Phaeton, an 1895 Benz Horseless Carriage Landaulet/Coupe, and a 1886 Benz Patent Motor-Wagen replica. Gerhard also happens to be a fan of newer Mercedes-Benzes, which helps explain the open and closed versions of the McLaren SLR out front, right beside the CLK63 Black Series that MBUSA brought along as a special auction offering. Follow the jump to read the rest of the story and don't forget to check out our high-res gallery.
