If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.

The incredible 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL Roadster featured here is finished in the stunning color combination of Midnight Blue over a Royal Blue leather interior, dark blue folding convertible top and matching Midnight Blue removable hardtop. This particular example was sold new by GT Motorcar Co. in Erie, Pennsylvania to the original owner who had the vehicle exclusively serviced by the selling dealer until the spring of 1993! Service records from the ownership tenure of the first owner still accompany the car today and detail the meticulous care this 380SL has been subjected to from new. The 380SL was retained by the original owner's family until 2002 when it was acquired by the second owner who continued the tradition of maintaining this SL to the highest standards of care. Today the 380SL presents wonderfully while a mere 44,009 actual miles are present on the odometer; a number which is documented by the accompanying CarFax report! As one would expect from a low mileage extremely well cared for example, an incredible assortment of documentation accompanies the SL today; including the original books with the original parts book still in the mailing envelope from Mercedes-Benz, original brochures, engine workshop manual, service records from the first owner, original instruction cards for the cruise control and air conditioning, original tool kit, jack, business cards from the selling dealer and more! We are extremely proud to offer this incredibly well documented, low mileage 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL Roadster (from the final year of production) to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates the combination of luxury, performance and timeless style found in these classic Mercedes-Benz roadsters.
