Timing is everything. I just got back from vacation. I was talking to my neighbor and he said that while I was gone, the heirs of some old guy across town wher cleaning out his place and gave away a 300SL that had been sitting in the garage for years. It wasn't a gull wing though. It was a roadster. I've been kicking myself for going on vacation. Nothing ever happens when I'm around.

The third one is a charm...

OK, when I was a teenager and in Sacramento, I wanted the standard Corvette. However, my drafting teacher told me to set my goals higher, "Go for a Gullwing" he told me. I ignored him until the owner of a nearby restrant showed up in a red one. I loved the doors, but it was a FOREIGN car, ich! But, time after time I kept reading up on them, and talking about them with friends. Actually, I didn't even own a car, unless you count my mother's 1955 Pontiac. Then one with knock off's showed up for sale in Alameda, California, at Park Central Garage. She was rough, silver, and seemingly unwanted. I somehow raised the $3,000 and bought her, lightened steel body and all. Later I bought another, 31,000 miles, black and red leather for $5,000. Still have them and love them both.
So, here we are: no living rooms, as these cars are for driving. My neighbor's all think I nuts not to sell them and quit working. Instead, I've trained both my son's how to work on them so the cars stay with the family when I croke, but we want a third. I have decided we want to do the third one with a cranberry paint job, and plaid seats. We know the mechanics of these cars, know how to saddle soap leather, and where to find the pieces needed to keep them on the road and preserved at the same time. We have spare engines, new injectors, a new injection pump and transmissions. We are in a dry climate with protected indoor storage. We are a time proven, safe haven, for that free Gullwing, and as stated, need a third. So, if anyone is giving one away, here we are. That need also includes a 300 Sl roadster and a Cabriolet 300SC. "Can barrow an enclosed trailer, will travel."
