My view on antique cars is that they are meant to be driven and experienced, not held on a pedestal like a statue. This is a story of a dude, who does just that. Through an arduous process of over 30 years he restores a Mercedes 300SL Gullwing. And like a true badass, he drives it everywhere!
“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.”
Even if you aren’t that big into cars, you can appreciate this video.
