This is a story about an automotive aficionado who inherited his love of cars from his father. The video-tale has been released by Mercedes-Benz, as it features the company’s classic cars, focusing on the 220 SE Cabriolet.
The black 1960 220 SE Cabriolet you see here is part of a small collection of retro Mercedes vehicles who belong to Mark Minkoff, the aforementioned gear head. He received the car from his father, promissing that he would never sell any of his classic Mercs.
The open-top vehicle had been bought for his mother, on his parents’ 10-year anniversary. The collection, which you can see in the video above, includes multiple vehicles, such as a Gullwing.
Here’s how Mercedes describes the experience: “In 1963, Mark Minkoff's father, Don, surprised his wife on her birthday. Blindfolded, she was led to the front seat of a new car. "Honey, I bought you a station wagon." But it was far from a station wagon.”
