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.

Building upon a successful R107 gathering in 2019, we are adding the next generation SL, the R129 to this years’ gathering. Our plan is to meet up at the Lincoln County Historical Park, Lincolnton GA 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 R107 was called the 350SL, 450SL, 380SL and the 560SL. The R129’s were called 300SL, 320SL, 500SL, 600SL, SL320, SL500, SL600 (in the US). R107's and R129’s 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-April is a great time to get out and enjoy your SL. The drive to Lincolnton from the Atlanta area is about a 2½ hour drive and one can take the interstate or back county roads, put the top down and enjoy Georgia in the spring.  For questions, contact Dean Prince at DRPATL@comcast.net.
