As was the case yesterday, I had a hard time picking a car for today. With today’s color being silver, and a significant portion of my collection being German, you can imagine I had a number of cars to choose from. Ultimately I decided to go with my biggest grail find from last year, the AUTOart Mercedes-Benz SL600. It was a model I passed on back when they were new as I was waiting on a version that never got released. Unfortunately, that means I paid way more than the model is worth, but that’s the way this collecting thing goes sometimes. Of course, not long after I acquired the SL, Otto released an R129 SL of their own. But their SL looks off to my eyes, so if you want the best SL, you want the AUTOart.
