  • Phase one of the restoration is done and the Gullwing is finally on the road!

    100 years from now, people will talk about the Jay Leno car museum.There will be talks about his fantastic detailed restorations, his saving of lost causes, and and his continued maintenance of survivor cars.School children will even be given small tidbits of trivia during the tours;"Did any of you know that Jay Leno started out as a comedian?"

    While in the USAF in 1967 my friend, Paul Weeks, bought a 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Coupe. It was silver with red interior. It was in good condition but not restored.

Just before he got out of the Air Force, he sent thhipped the car to Germany to be fully restored. I never got to see it restored. If he kep...

    I love classic cars with the original paint job and cosmetic damage. It looks like it had an awesome life and it gives the car more value (in my eyes at least). Fresh painted cars still look badass but I think the style of this kind of paint job is my favorite.
