Every decade has its style icons. The 1960s brought us go-go boots, bouffant hairdos, and kipper ties, none of which have aged nearly as well as the Mercedes-Benz W113 series of two-seat roadsters. The W113 was the original car as accessory. It was expensive and impractical enough to demonstrate one's wealth, but it was small and zippy enough for easy motoring through city traffic. It was sporty enough to be fast and fun to drive, and it was also comfortable enough to be luxurious. The W113 was always appropriate for any occasion, and anyone looked good in it..
