Mercedes Transporter

When Stirling Moss scored his first Grand Prix victory in the British Grand Prix at Aintree in 1955, becoming the first Brit to do so, the Mercedes-Benz team he was driving for had at its disposal the world’s fastest race car transporter, The Blue Wonder, which could cruise at more than 100 mph with his W196 GP car strapped on its open rear deck.
Lately Linda has been complaining she can’t take her kayak to the water because the Toyota Yaris is too small and a roof rack wont fit on our two door model. We have been thinking of trading up to a more suitable vehicle, I’m wondering if the Mercedes Museum might lease me their transporter. I could get Linda and her kayak to the water real fast, could attend car shows without the need to take a car, move furniture, buy more groceries and deliver friends home from the pubs plus a host of other jobs!!!!!. But Alas!!! I will probably end up with another Toyota??
Cheers and keep reading.
