Uber Cool Vintage Mercedes

When John and I got together some years ago, we left a fantastic weekend in Napa Valley, relishing in the memories of good food and good wine on our way back to San Francisco.  On the highway we literally followed a white 1970 Mercedes 280sl into the city over the Golden Gate Bridge.  Its sleek lines set against the golden California hills and then under the looming structure of the Golden Gate, was sheer magic in motoring….

Mercedes 280 SL

I said to John ‘I would love to have one some day’, classic lines, cruising down the highway, just so bloody sexy and timeless.  Not more than 6 months later, we had one, parked in Chicago.  We had it delivered to LA, and within a couple of weeks, the top was stolen….I guess it was in demand!  Flip to this uber hip guy in LA who is restoring old benzes, kind of gets the bug going again to hear a new take on an old classic!


Gluckliche Autofahren!  (Happy Motoring)
