RE: Deals on MB Wheels thread
Here's a really sweet early 450SL Euro, a car that seems to have a lot of collector interest due to the high horsepower output of these earlier models. With only 64k miles, I think the Buy it now price of 12k$ is a steal. I also have read that some of these early 450's actually shipped with the 5.0 liter engine, and those are considered highly collectable.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
