1961 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL

I have been enamored of the 300SL for some time now — in the 1990s, I came across a rusted out version for about $30k, but it was too much of a project car for me. I briefly considered the similar 190SL, but it was too underpowered a beast for my taste.

Had I bought and rebuilt the 300SL, it would be worth about 50X my investment today (see this and this). Yet another lovely vehicle whose prices have completely run away from me . . .
