early Mercedes race car. I love the details… so subtle… at the Mercedes Benz Museum. Don’t miss this place if you are nearby. I spent about 4 hours there happily!
Edit… Jan 2010… I was up in Santa Cruz… Capitola to be exact… and met by accident the nephew of the fellow that drove this car when it was racing! He runs a great sandwich shop there and has a picture of this car on the wall with his uncle driving.
