I suspect I'm not the only one here with a passion for cars - together with trains (and planes, and boats, and anything that has a motor and moves) - so I thought I'd share an interesting sighting I had this morning in Marblehead.

The weather is just awful here today - temp is about 38 degrees with light to moderate rain. When I was driving my son to school this morning, he and I pulled up behind, of all things, a bronze Mercedes 300SL Roadster.

I've always preferred the gullwing version of the 300SL, but it was still a thrill to see a 300SL roadster stuck in traffic at 0730 in the morning on a crappy New England day. Here's a pic of the prototype (albeit not the car we say today).

Hope people don't mind the quick automotive diversion! Jon Linde

What year is that Corvette, actually? It's got a big block hood scoop from '65-67, but small block engine with 300 horse heads, '64 vents that have been modified, and knock-offs from a '67??
But it IS nice!
