Land speed Gullwing

I took my favorite medium format camera to Autorama and spent nearly four hours ogling the forms and colors of all of the hot rods and rat rods there on the show floor. While many cars there are primarily concerned with looking good, with speed taking secondary importance, this Mercedes 300 SL is primarily concerned with speed, it being a Bonneville Salt Flats car and all. So while looking good for this car was of secondary importance, it looks fantastic because… well, it’s a Gullwing. Photo shot with a Mamiya C220 TLR and an 80mm f/2.8 lens on Kodak Portra 400.
