I'm writing a book on the Mercedes SL cars - everything from the 1952 300SL racers to the latest R230 road cars. I'd be grateful for any suggestions or help with pictures that anyone can give me.

For more info see http://www.pgan.com/andrew/sl.html

If you want to contact me use the email link on that page, or use the Benzworld messaging system.

Thanks everyone!

Good luck with your book! Approximately how many pages do you plan?

Good luck with your book! Approximately how many pages do you plan?

As a Mercedes freak (like most of the potential readers of your book) I can tell you what I would like to see in a complete "SL-bible".

I would like to know all the details about all changes over the production years of a particular SL model. Also minor things like for example new type of wood in dashboard, or that a certain option became available should be included. This should be illustrated with lots of pictures! I don’t know about the copyrights, but maybe you can get pictures from the original sales brochures.

Another think I would love to see is a complete list of all colours available (interior and exterior) for different models and years. Together with lots of pictures of course!

SL book

It's part of an existing series of books, so the format is pretty much fixed. But within that I hope to include as much detail as possible. And there will be lots of pictures!

Don't hold your breath

It will be a while yet. But rest assured, when it's published I will make sure everyone knows!
