at Ladenburg, Germany
It's a tradition, the Mercedes-Meeting
near Heidelberg, Germany.
Several years I wasn't able to visit this event.
This year, about 120 old Mercedes cars were exhibited.
One of the most impressive cars,
it's a 1925 Mercedes 630.
The car was bodied by Million-Guiet (France) in 1929.
This is a 1934 Mercedes "Nürburg" 500.
Even in 1934, you had to show that your car has "high-tech" inside...
This sign says that the car has a 4-wheel-brake-system! Wow!!!
A model of 1936, it's a Mercedes 200 lwb.
Built in the same year, a Mercedes 290 Convertible
Mercedes built several types of convertibles.
The letter, here it's a "B", indicates a two-door convertible, with four side-windows.
Also a Mercedes 290, but it's a Convertible C of 1935.
A dreamcar, back in the 30's, and still a dreamcar
A Mercedes 540K Cabrio A ("A" indicates a 2-door-2-side-window Convertible)
This car was built in 1937.
Another 540K, built also in 1937, but the body is called "Convertible C".
A Cabrio B, based on a 170V, built in 1939.
And an estate car, based also on a 170.
The Mercedes 320 Convertible A of 1937.
There were also some cars, built in the 50's and 60's:
A Mercedes-Meeting, without a 300SL Roadster? No chance!
Have a look at the vanity plate: S-L 1957H
So I think the car was built in 1957, and it is definitely a SL. (S indicates that the car is registered at Stuttgart, Germany), the H states that it is a historical/veteran car.
Here you can see a Mercedes 300S Cabriolet, built in 1953.
Built for representation, the Mercedes 300.
(The car shows another vanity plate. W189 is the factory code for this model)
A Mercedes 250SL, a pagoda.
Not a veteran car, yet, it will take some years to see this SL500 inside the meeting-area...
