Always loved them
This past saturday morning before driving out to west chester i had the pleasure of seeing this completely original gullwing in person for the first time. An old friend that we haven't seen in awhile owns this car and decided to bring it by. I thought i would share these pics. Enjoy!

This isn't the aluminum alloy body model though. This aluminum body one below sold for $4.62m recently
I was going to a buddy's shop in late 1999 to see how the restoration on his Porsche 356 Continental was going. After leaving, we were stopped at a red light when I said "Holy s**t Greg, look across the intersection". Low and behold a silver 300SL gullwing. We were going apes**t and apparently the owner saw us and gave us a big wave. Man, that thing was a beauty.

Greg wrote the factory in 1999 asking for the original color combination. Stuttgart sent him the swatch and all information on the colors. His 356 was last registered in southern California in 1980 and had been painted yellow. He literally found it in a barn north of Seattle in 1998.
