Memorial Day | Photo Barrage

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!! Dust off the grille and polish up your cooking skills because the sun is out and so are the good times.  Today we have a special treat and a guest photographer to help celebrate Memorial Day with us. Ritchie Hann, a good friend of LACS, has a selection of photos from a recent Cars & Coffee trip that he has donated.

So go out there and have a great Holiday weekend with friends and family. Go to a car show if you have the chance and in the meantime, enjoy a few beautiful classic and modern cars courtesy of RH and LACS. Cheers!  ♦ ♦♦♦ ♦

1999 Mercedes Benz SL500 (R129)

Spotted this very clean and well-looked after example of the Mercedes Benz SL500 from the 1990’s.  I have always admired the styling on the SL series and I believe it holds up well in the over 20 years since this chassis was released. And you can’t go wrong with a 5 liter V8 under the hood 🙂

Check out some other Mercedes Benz vehicles we have spotted.

1990 Mercedes Benz 560 SEC AMG

1983 Mercedes-Benz 300TD Wagon (W123)

1992 Mercedes-Benz E500

Some info about this vehicle:

The Mercedes-Benz R129 SL roadsters were produced from 1989 through 2002. The R129 replaced the R107 in 1989 and was in its turn replaced by the R230 SL-Class in 2002 for the 2003 model year.
The R129 was produced as a two-door, two-seat roadster with an automated (electro-hydraulic), collapsible textile roof, with a shell-like, color-matched, tonneau cover. All R129s came standard with an aluminum detachable hardtop that was fitted by folding the canvas roof down and manually attaching the hardtop.

1992 Mercedes-Benz E500

Look… at… this!  Just about 1,500 of these bad boys were imported into the United States.  Equipped with a 5.0L V8, this thing was a serious sedan back in the day. Just look at it would ya! Look at the width of that front fender!

Some information via Wiki:

From 1991 to 1994, Mercedes-Benz sold a high-performance version of the W124, the Mercedes-Benz 500 E (W124.036). The 500 E was created in close cooperation with Porsche; each 500 E was hand-built by Porsche, being transported back and forth between the Mercedes plant and Porsche’s Rossle-Bau plant in Zuffenhausen, Germany during assembly — taking a full 18 days to complete each model. Design began in 1989 and into 1991. Called ‘500 E’ through model year 1993, for model year 1994 it was face-lifted along with the rest of the range and renamed to ‘E 500’.
