Classic cars – higher echelon

with 6 comments

I DIDN’T TAKE THESE PHOTOS!  Some folks that owns these beauties took them – I just want to show off some really nice rides!

Around Christmastime I wanted to do a post on a FANTASY GARAGE GIVEAWAY – where I, as “John Beresford Tipton” (The Millionaire) would bestow riches upon the worthy populous – completely at my discretion. You may think some of these wonderful cars are crap, or “what the hell was this kook thinkin;?  But, I, in my eccentric way found value in these fine automobiles.

Anyway — I was buying them a classic car instead of giving them a check for a mil.  Here’s what I was going give from my fantasy garage:

1969 Mercedes 280SL

1952 Buick Estate Wagon
