My folks' neighbor has an unrestored 300SL in better shape--at least, 
the interior is--but it was painted black over the original silver (a 
better color, IMO, esp. with red interior).  I got a ride in it the 
other day; it's (relatively) big, heavy and solid, but not nearly as 
nimble or as much fun as our BN2.
