YAK Car Pic of the Day

The gentleman behind the wheel of this 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280 SE (above) is originally from Germany, so his opinions may be a bit biased. But I couldn’t argue with him when he threw open the door to show me the craftsmanship which went into the interior, right down to the solid, chrome-plated one-piece door jamb. A very impressive car, and as he mentioned while driving off, “Even Mercedes-Benz doesn’t make ’em like this anymore!” And that’s a shame. From last Saturday’s Hemming’s Sports & Exotic Car Show in Saratoga Springs, which is also the current home of today’s feature car.
