Day of celebration in Munich.
It was a holiday in Munich, and a day of celebration. Classic sports cars from throughout Europe and even further afield flocked to the Mercedes-Benz sales and service outlet, where they were directed to their spaces on level 1 of the parking structure. At the end there would be 80 lined up for admirers from throughout the region.
Not just any old classic cars, but rather almost exclusively gems of the model series W 198, better known as the 300 SL 'gull-wing' and roadster. Nowhere else in the world will there have been so many of these cars gathered together in one place as on the last weekend of May in Munich.
