Is any one going to this sale in Scotsdale Arizona at gooding & company
a 1956 300SL black beauty
Will you let me know what it is sold for
I am in Western Australia where the other cars are i will go and have a look see if i can add to my collection
I currently have a 1981 280 slc, is not the origanal color has the color should be 480 manganese metallic brown so that will revert to origanal and the intrior is 935 cream the trim looks like cream but the seats are a greyish color
I also have a 1963 land rover seriese 1 in the stage of restoration also a series 2 waiting its turn
Owning a car that is largely a survivor but with some failing paint and tears in the leather, I always planned to get to the cosmetics once the mechanicals were sorted, but after this weekend, backed up by months of similar results elsewhere, I have decided that I am not going to spend one penny on the aesthetic side, and I rather like the patina anyway. Why spend money to potentially make my car worth less?
(I'm only part joking, my car if far from a Gullwing but with prices across the board a wait-and-see approach seems prudent. As they say, they are only original once.)
Kinda funny....if you think about it....it sat in one garage for 30 years and now its on its way to sit in another garage for another 30 years....I highly believe cars should be driven and not sat in a garage...
