My SL Adventure: Morad from Cairo
I had the liberty of owning this wonderful 1977 380SL. I always dreamed of having one ever since I saw one the first time a few years back! I was very lucky to purchase this fully restored R107 to mint condition from a dear friend.
The day I bought it, I decided to take a 300KM journey trip! It was a hot 45°C summer day and I wanted to enjoy the car at our summer home. I blindly trusted her to get me there safely, yet make it a splendid ride. It was very comfortable, enjoyable and even thrilling when I pushed her a bit!
Buying this SL was one of the best decisions of my life! A reliable daily driver you can depend on, comfortable and luxurious, and a timeless fasionable look! I hope my adventure encourages other fellow enthusiasts to take a leap of faith. It is well worth it!
