I’m not a car buff. Yet I’m quick to drool at old cars in fine condition. This mid 20th century Mercedes Benz is a classic example. Saw if cruising through the madness of Colombo traffic. It’s dignity got my attention before I realised how well maintained it was. Worlds away from the condition of another classic car I found.
The 4 “shri” licence number dates the car somewhere in the latter part of the mid 20th century. The driver who sat without slouching seemed to come from that era a well.
I’ll leave the details about this chariot to the automotive connoisseurs among you. I can spot a Messerschmitt Bf 109 E from a Messerschmitt Bf 109 F in an instant. I take longer to separate a Honda from a Haundai. I only knew this car was a Mercedes from the logo on the back.
David Blacker has far better photos of a sexier looking vintage Mercedes.
