I took my 107 to a car show last night. I've been going to this Thursday night car show (in a Wendy's parking lot) for a few years and there's always a good turnout of mostly muscle cars. Last night was an exception to the rule... I spotted it as soon as I parked (away from the participants) and walked in. There it was... an absolutely gorgeous 450sl either gold or light brown (depending on your point of view) with chrome Bundt rims. Everything looked perfect right down to the flawless wood finish. Of course the top was down.
I told the owner that I had an '83 380sl but I didn't point it out in the distance. His 450 made my 380 look like it belonged back home under a tarp.
Don't ask me why I didn't think to take a picture. It's not like I didn't have my iPhone in my pocket... I must have been brain dead at the time. If he's there next Thursday I'll be sure to get a picture.
Nobody gets out of this life alive.
