Phase one of the restoration is done and the Gullwing is finally on the road! Despite its reputation as being the F1 of its day, Jay was skeptical... until he found this 1955 model languishing in a trailer in the desert.

Great car and video. I just remebered that a few small german post-war 2-stroke cars had direct fuel injection before the 300SL, like some Goliath and Gutbrod cars, but they aren't nearly as good looking as this one of course! Maybe it was the first 4-stroke production car with direct fuel injection, and what a car!

I HAVE to know what Jay gets out of the "mercedes benz classic centre" product placement, my guess is a discount on parts because he would absolutely hate having to pay those exorbitant prices & he is very miserly for a wealthy man.

My favorite car of all time. My grade school friend bought one in 1962 from doctor in Kansas City (we lived in Independence, MO). One time we were driving on I-70 freeway and he decided to push the accelerator to the floor. The car actually got up to 120 MPH and the tach and speedometer were still climbing. I was getting scared because we were coming up to cars doing 65 and 70 MPH so fast it seemed they were standing still, and he had to make terrifyingly quick lane changes. Incidentally, you were curious about the extra horn button; it's my understanding that it was a carry-over from the 300SLR racing car that Stirling Moss drove to win the 1955 Mille Miglia, where Dennis Jenkinson was his navigator and would be telling Moss when there were turns ahead and other obstacles. Since it was run on public roads, the horn button was for the navigator to warn unwary pedestrians. That car averaged almost 100 MPH over the thousand miles of public roads.

JAY ,it would be nice if you did a show about a very underrated car ever ,is the 1990 300sl ,not the 500 sl ....thank you !! I have one and the best drive and fun Ive had in any car .I like the room in the car ,and I have low profiles and a wood steering wheel which changes everything and it very robust and lasts a long time . I have no rust on mine and the leather is great .The only draw back is ...no cup holders ,but I found a solution ,its the one that goes on in the side of the passenger seat ,between the seat and the console, its 5.00 plastic real cheap and holds two cups and a change in the middle of it and doesn"t bother your arm for driving and does the trick,very happy......ciao bello !!

In around 1967 I lived in an apartment in Fairbanks, Alaska. Next door to the apartment building lived an elderly barber and his wife. He drove a middle 1950's Studebaker pickup, and she had a 1960's Chevrolet car. One day I just happened to be in the right spot as he opened his garage door....my jaw dropped. There was a Mercedes sports car in that little garage, and I think that it was a 300. It has been a while, and I am not familiar with the Mercedes sports cars, however, something at the time sure made me think it was a 'gull-wing'. Out of curiosity, I sure wished I would have known for sure. I'm not at all a sports car type of person, but I have thought about that for all these years.

I don't follow about the engine. You said the car had no engine or transmission when you got it. Then you said that you got the motor in pieces. Were the pieces with the car or did you get a disassembled motor elsewhere? I also have to say that the blurred out license plate is funny. It's a rusty red 300SL with a big 263 on each side. Who isn't going to recognize the car?

I've heard people saying he's bragging about his wealth. Personally, I don't agree. I think he is talking about what he loves. If your passion was watching sports, and you talked about it, would you agree with being called a braggart by someone who couldn't afford a television to watch sports on? Probably not! He enjoys collecting cars, and I enjoy watching his videos. That's his passion, and he can afford it, so he does it. It makes him happy, and that's what matters.

This the model which became airborn at LeMans in 1956. I was in the army in Germany and one weekend we got to see one of these and I still have the photo also 1956. It was an amazing car at that time. They really crammed the engine into front end and had to partially turn it to make it fit.

I doubt anyone can say enough good things about Joy Leno's Garage videos. But I want to try. I've never once had the feeling that he's a braggart, or that he's talking down to us. Rather, he's just regular guy, with no hidden agenda, who just plain enjoys sharing his knowledge of automotive history of his cars, with anyone. Of course, he's a natural at interjecting quips of his trademark humor, but never to the point of silly distraction. That, and his videos seem to be around 16 minuets in length; not too long, not too short. So from me, and all on here: Thank you, Jay Leno.

I have for example, the twenty-five year old Corolla section, the "boxes and boxes of Christmas lights that are tangled up into electrical dreadlocks" section, and of course the prestigious "freezer full of Costco fudgicles" section. You and I are both living the dream you know?
