I’d somehow gone all my life without realizing Mercedes built a rally car out of the R107 Mercedes SL, so when I bumped into one at the Legends of the Autobahn event in Pebble Beach I nearly lost my mind. Rally 500 SL! RALLY 500 SL!
The Monterey Peninsula is full of golf courses, which is why it’s the perfect place to have a car show like The Legends of the Autobahn. Kick out the golfers. Add vintage BMWs, Benzes, and Audis. Call it a day.
Spinelli and I somehow pealed ourselves out of bed to watch the parade of German machinery take to the lawn at the Legends of the Autobahn. It's one of the best shows in Monterey, but this year's event was missing something. Specifically, Porsche.
