1927 Mercedes-Benz S George Gangloff Roadster (What's another word for beauty?)

Another great European car of the vintage period was the Mercedes which, happily, like the Rolls, is still in production today. Below is the typical top-of-the-range touring car of the period, the 1927 Mercedes-Benz. An interesting feature on this model is the dual windscreen.

Mercedes started life as Daimler but the name was changed in a bid to defeat sales resistance from the French. It was thought that the Germanic sounding Daimler only fanned the hatred France had for the Germans.
