Mercedes-Benz 190SL

Goodbye and thanks for the photos

I was eating pancakes on the veranda when this 1957 Mercedes-Benz 190SL drove up the road and parked outside one of the greenhouses at Blomorado. Bigger photo. The owners had their leather helmets on, and I knew it was time for a photo shoot. The driver told me that he was always working on the car, and only took it out from the garage during the summer month. I took ten photos and if you're interested you can see them as a slideshow here.

Even in summer it looks cold. You would have to love that car to drive it in Sweden

Your photos are cleverly done. I like the idea of such a car in warmer climes.

You can probably drive like this for six months of the year without any problem. From May to October. It was around 21 C last night when I took these photos.

So far, I have no complaints. It’s running very well. The parts are tough. I make it a point to check every single part so as to avoid any problem in the road. Hopefully, I haven’t had any trouble with it during rush. I got to replace its Mercedes Benz Ball Joint last week and I’m fortunately enough that it’s only the part that I needed to purchase for it this month.
