If you are a proud owner of an R107/R129 Mercedes, or are considering acquiring one, come to the Peachtree Section gathering on Saturday, September 12 in Lincolnton, GA. The whole event is outside and provides ample space for social distancing.

Building upon a successful R107 gathering in 2019, we are adding the next generation SL, the R129, to this year’s gathering. Our plan is to meet up at the Lincoln County Historical Park, Lincolnton GA at 10:30 where we will admire these great vehicles, have lunch (pizza), socialize, and discuss car valuations and technical issues.

The R107 and R129 are the insider's designation for the Mercedes SL sold in the US from 1972 to 2001.  At various times the R107s were called the 350SL, 450SL, 380SL and the 560SL. The R129s were called 300SL, 320SL, 500SL, 600SL, SL320, SL500, SL600 (in the US). R107s and R129s are generally quite reliable and are great driving machines.

Both of these models are still quite reasonably priced, and we expect an increase in values for nice examples over time. Not yet an owner of an R107/R129? Now may be the time to purchase and this event will be a great time to learn about the cars by talking with owners and viewing many examples. It will be a fun event and anyone with an interest in the R107/R129 should plan to attend!

Mid-September is a great time to get out and enjoy your SL. The drive to Lincolnton from the Atlanta area is about a 2½ hours and one can take the interstate or back country roads. Put the top down and enjoy Georgia in the early fall.  The address is 147 Lumber Street, Lincolnton, GA. For questions, contact Dean Prince at drpatl@comcast.net.
