1973 Mercedes Benz 280SEL 4.5 Projects 13


It was a beautiful Charlotte morning so I drove the fifty miles to Cars and Cappuccino. Because of the weather, they had the largest turnout I have ever seen. This gathering is for European cars only although there were a few transgressors. Amazingly, a ’72 280SE 4.5 parked next to me. He arrived with his young children and the car is his daily driver. However, he said the water pump just began leaking so he had some work to do.

It was a little over 100 miles round trip. The car ran perfectly…for 96 miles. The last four miles it was spitting and sputtering but I made it home. The gas tank will be coming out. Also, where exactly is that filter on the tank?

Besides having big numbers, there was quite a variety of cars. A good time was had by all!!!
