YAK Car Pic of the Day

This 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL is a great weekend/summer car — even if it was seen on a Tuesday less than two weeks from the start of autumn. The final year for this generation of SL (which began with the 1971 280SL), today’s green beauty had M-B’s 5.6-liter V-8 engine. It also had a rather ungainly Center High-Mount Stop Lamp (Third Brake Light), which looks like an after-thought, stuck unceremoniously on top of the trunk lid. Saw this one just yesterday in a Grand Island parking lot.
