Vintage Photo taken from top of Coit Tower SF
« on: February 27, 2023, 22:26:36 »
 Going through some old photos and I ran across this one I took from the top of Coit Tower in San Francisco back in November 1968. My 280SL is in the lower left corner. It had some good company parked on either side along with one or two others as well.

Maybe a Volvo 122.  Also a pair of VWs, an MGB roadster, an MGB GT and a Mustang among the all the yank tanks.  A friend guessed that the pickup is a Studebaker.
