Mercedes 280SL Automatic 1969(?)
I still remember the moment when, while moseying along the cobbled side streets of New York's West Village, this vision, this apparition in cherry red and tan leather seats materialised before my eyes out of the haze of a hot summer morning. It was a Mercedes 280SL with its top down and it was love at first sight. (Can't vouch for it being mutual.) The single most beautiful thing I have ever seen in my short life...And this love affair with the 280SL has persisted ever since...which is peculiar as I have never sat behind the wheel of an automobile!
SHE'S A BEAUT!
