A chip off the old 300SL block

Heribert Proepper, Associated Press

Udo Haase polishes his wooden full-scale replica of the legendary gullwing door Mercedes 300SL roadster in his workshop in Kiel, Germany, on Thursday. It took Haase about 2,500 hours of work to glue together this old-timer of pine without any nails or screws. The mock-up of the original, which was built in 1954, is on sale. The high-performance 300SL street machine was really a thinly veiled race car.
