Default Which model Mercedes did Don own in 87?

Just curious what Mr. Aronow was driving those days.
Never knew what model, or year.... I am curious. That's all. I have heard reference to a "white mercedes roadster."

Thanks.

White 560 SL (1986, 1987), I believe the hard top was on the car in the pictures I have seen but not 100% sure. I think it had a gray interior as well.

Thanks, I was just curious.

I bought one a couple of years ago without knowing that he had one. Now I like it that much more.

Same year(s)?

You should dig a little deeper and check serial numbers.....who knows?


Unlikely as can be, but speculation is fun.

Same make/model/color/style.

Mine is an 89, last year of that look.

He had an 86 or an 87.
From what I gather, that was the car he was driving on the tragic day. Rather not get into details out of great respect for him, and his son.

But as someone who respects his memory, and his legacy... I think that it's kind of cool that I have such a similar ride. I have the hard top too.

Here is the car, for reference.

Since we have spoken so much of him, I feel that a "Rest in Peace" is in order.

Thanks for the impact that you had on all of our lives, even though most of us never new you, Don.
