Yak Car Pic of the Day

The Mercedes-Benz 230 was built from 1965-1968, and was generally referred to as the Fintail, for obvious reasons. The 230 was the six-cylinder version of the four-cylinder-powered 200 and diesel-powered 200D. These cars were produced during the years when Studebaker-Packard was the official U.S. importer of Mercedes-Benz cars, and they were responsible for a good chunk of that company’s profits. This example, with its rather curious-looking black-painted chrome, was recently seen outside a service station on Hertel Avenue.
