Take A Break And Relax With A Little Old MercedesMichael Ballaban8/10/14 9:30amFiled to: LCBCLittle Car in the Big CityMercedes2614EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkWelcome to Little Car in the Big City, where I highlight fascinating cars I found walking around a town that is known for being bigger than everything else, but where every car is fighting to stand out: New York, New York.AdvertisementWhen most people think of an old Mercedes-Benz, they think of enormous cars for dictators, like the Mercedes-Benz 600 Grosser, or a diesel station wagon from the 1980s. If they consider themselves an aficionado, they might think back to the original 300SL.But the truth of the matter is that Mercedes made a full lineup of cars, much like today. Cars that I think are a bit under-appreciated, like this 1958 model. I spotted it in Red Hook, just outside Sunny's Bar in Red Hook where I saw that old Willys pickup. Red Hook is strangely one of the best places to spot old cars in New York.
