I think he's still alive. He retired from being chief of design according to Wolfgang's page in 1999. So probably whatever new models came out in 1999 may have been him.

I used to own a 1990 Lincoln Continental, I purchased for $500 of this lady who didnt know she had to add tranny fluid to make it run. She left it out side for 8 months till here neighbors told here its an eye sore. Glod bless her husban whos car it was. He past away in the middle of fixing it up. It was oxadized to the point of no return. It had almost perfect black leather int and horrible grey blueish ext. I got it painted black and man, the compliments I got was amazing. I loved that car till it started having electrical problems. The look was super clean. I currently have the Opal Matalic Black with Tan. I get compliments, but I am still kinda iffy on the color because its not totaly black and its not blue. Its a cool color. I am gonna get it painted soon and was considering going tripple gloss black, but there are so many e320's out here that are black, that I may just keep it the same color.

For a great contrast...The Black exterior with the Helios interior really lights the up this Great sl 500..They only made the Helois for a few years...
Really Clean and Sharp...
