1958 220S ponton Pro Street.

This is not posted for the purists to whine and moan about. It is for the ones that not only like Mercedes-Benz in any way, shape or form but that also just enjoy others enthusiasm for automobiles in general. I found this in Lake Havasu, Arizona, USA in October while showing my 250C in the annual Run To The Sun car show. 754 cars attended. Hope you enjoy the photos.

Is that carpeting by Reynold's Wrap?

Not my cup of tea, but I'm sure it's quicker than any Ponton was new!
