Yeah, #159 was a show stopper :-)
Your gold SL is beautiful and I agree with what you stated.
I encounter folks looking for a hobby car and tell them about
our R107s being so less expensive than most other show cars
and they still shy away because they think they are so expensive
to maintain. Anyone interested in a 30+ year old Mercedes had
better subscribe to this forum and be willing to do most of their
own work, then these cars are relatively inexpensive to maintain.
