'What's old is new again!' This is the cyclical nature of trends, in both the fashion and classic car markets. And speaking of inflated markets, nothing makes me more nostalgic then the late 80's!  Although I was only 9 years old when this Mercedes Benz 560sl rolled on to the showroom floor, the style, luxury and excess of the era made a quite an impression on me. Through music, television and film, I began my obsession with a reckless period in American culture that burned fast, but oh so bright.
