Détails du spot
This will be my 1500th post here on AG. The car that I am using for this milestone is a 300 SL Gullwing on vintage New York tags. ( W16 23 ) 1955. I spotted this legend in the valet in front of the F&B Restaurant located off of Peachtree. As we approached the car the Gullwing doors were already up and the very lucky owner was getting ready to claim the car. We only had time for a handful of shots. When the car started up it really sounded fierce and powerful very much like a race car. In fact we could hear the car well out of view accelerating down the street. I have spotted a 300 SL before in Miami and that car did not sound like this one. In fact when I looked over these shots at home I noticed that she had no rear exhaust. The pipes were situated on the passenger side of the vehicle. I did do some research on the internet and found a few pics of a similar car with those same side exhaust tips. That car had decals that read La Carrera Panamericana from the Mexico Race. This car even had the extra lamps on the front nose. A big huge thanks to my Fiance who has been spotting with me religiously for the last two years.
