Rolf Wagner is selling shift knobs with the pattern engraved.   Definitely a good idea for any of the 4 speed 500k/540k cars.  I think all the 5 speed cars already have engraved knobs.

Amelia is featuring MB this year.   I know Mr 540K handle is going,  Fast Ed Minnie, along with Henry Magno.  Anybody else?  Somebody needs to take a bunch of pictures.

Mercedes class at Amelia had 5 500/540k cars.  Hopefully somebody did a better job of taking pictures than I did.

Best in Show at Amelia was a 540K.   Car was purchased from original family in Spain,  restored by Paul Russell.  Really special car.   "Almost" overshadowed the special roadsters.

Von Krieger roadster looks so much better now that it doesn't have whitewalls. They're going to change the orange interior next, which will also be an improvement.

I know an owner of the touring one might post some photos if he will let me.
