YAK Car Pic of the Day

You never know what you might find and where you might find it. That’s why you always look both ways before crossing the street. And if the streets happen to be the intersection of Chicago and Miami Streets in Buffalo’s Old First Ward, you just might spot this 1968 Mercedes-Benz 250 sedan, strapped down to what looks like a portable loading dock in front of the old Buffalo Courier-Express sign shop. Back in the early 1970s I almost bought a car exactly like this. It was in great shape and the price was right, but then I started thinking about why this car was traded in at Hal Casey Volkswagen in Hamburg, and what would I do for money when it started needing repairs. I passed. Please don’t ask what I bought instead.
