    What goes around...

    What goes around...

    Always fun to stumble across an old picture with the 190SL as its subject. Even more fun when there's a great story to it. (1957 picture)

    Note the piping on the seats and boot.

    Comes around...

    But, then to find the same subject about 40 years later is a real treat!

    Thank you John for bringing back memories - this 1956 190 SL was restored for the Van Doren family in 1994 when I had my shop in Bolton MA & delivered to Charles in upstate CT. I had the pleasure of meeting him several times. This 190 SL also had a 3 piece luggage set in white & every option you could imagine, fogs/kinder seat, etc. I restored it back to the VDC - the piping was done by the factory, as this was considered a PR car. This 190 SL was recently sold to Richard Nowak & is now part of his collection.
