Vintage Car show in Cologne

Mercedes 190SL

While I was in Köln or Cologne as it’s called in English like the fragrance, for an weekend back in 2012, I randomly came across a vintage car show in the streets outside an art museum.  I came across some really nice classic Mercedes that showed up. Worth mentioning is that all these cars came here driving and left driving, and even if they were shiny and clean you could see they are used to be driven, totally my motto with old cars. The paint does not have to be perfect as long as the car is in good condition to be driven. Cars should be driven and not standing collecting dust in a garage!

I made a short video of various cars and explore in more detail in the images under.

Over to the images, mostly Mercedes Benz.

The pagoda, I think it is overpriced compared to the R107 which is much better in performace and handling
