This 300SL Gullwing is the culmination of a thirty year dream. This car doesn't represent one piece in a collection, it is the entire collection. This is a dream that has come to fruition after 30 years of hard work and getting oneself into a position to own the car that has been yearned for for thirty years. For myself, the idea of dreaming for one car and working hard for years and years is truly inspirational. It helps me keep the dream alive for the cars that I desire to own in the years to come.
When I first came across this story I was in disbelief that there was someone who drives a car of this magnitude often and all across the country in various states of weather. Knowing there was someone who was doing so brought a smile to my face and made me happy that this car was being enjoyed in a way it was meant to be. Other Gullwings in museums and private collections have their place in preserving their place in history but there is just something about knowing that you can come across one of these on the open road or on your favorite drive is mind blowing.
