Gorgeous cars, but I'd prefer a 300SEL 6.3... Classic styling and power to blow away everything else on the road. 6.6sec 0-60 on one with a few miles. Too bad the entry fee is more than I have. And they are super expensive to restore(600s are worse).

I read the special they had on it it Mercedes enthusiast and fell in love with it. If I had 25000 spare lbs I'd pick it up!...Would have to put an extension on the garage though!

There will be a gathering of 600's this June in St. Louis, Mo, for the M 100 group show. Contact mbca.org for details and date. The 6.3 is there as well. [:D]
