300 SL Testdrive Ends in Total Loss
March 27th, 2013
Imagine you have your cherished Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing in for a service at a
facility specialized in iconic automobiles and then you receive a phone call of the like
"Could you please come over here - we might have a problem...".

Both, the driver and the passenger - an apprentice in the employment of the shop - made it through
the accident unharmed as the police said. The owner of the totaled 300 SL Gullwing reportedly
took the news in strive - hopefully the insurance will reimburse him quickly and without delay, so
that he can shop for a replacement before the season is in full swing.
